Still one of my favorites. Their brunwswick stew is not as good as it use to be a couple of years ago.

“Comfort food at it's best”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 23, 2012

This place serves the kind of food my grandmother used to make. If you are not afraid of cholesterol and calories this is the place to go! The fried chicken is perfect. Your kids will fight over the hushpuppies. Just smelling the bar b que will make your heart race and the potato salad will make a battle hardened Marine cry for his mama. This is real home cooking done the southern way. The service is amazingly fast too.

“LOVE THIS PLACE”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 23, 2012

Smithfields is the closest you are going to get to good 'ole Eastern Carolina pig pickin' barbeque. The Carolina style vinegar based sauce is an aquired taste and you either love it or hate it. For those of us who love it, they have the best there is. I have a brother and sister who live out of state, and both ask for Smithfields "care packages" everytime we visit LOL The decor is great, the staff is always friendly and polite (unusual in most fast food places), the service is fast. This is our go-to place for barbeque. Their catering service is also great, and they provide ample portions for a reasonable price.

“Loved it!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 9, 2012

Friends took us to Smithfields, for "down home Carolina BBQ" . .. . and it was delicious. Loved the decor, and the background music (50's music) . .. but the food was great. Absolutely great baked beans. Staff outgoing, helpful and friendly. The BBQ w/cole slaw on it was delicious. My husband thought the BBQ chicken was great. Enjoyed it!

“Wonderful hotdogs”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 24, 2012

Well, the chicken is a little greasy, and the BBQ a little dry (I'm not that much interested in vinegar based BBQ anyway), but they have wonderful hotdogs. I get mine all the way, which includes a red colored hotdog with chili, slaw and onions. The fries are also very tasty. They give you a lot of fries.
