“Every bit as good as the boutiques”
Reviewed September 2, 2013

I have spent years sampling the true BBQ houses and Smithfield's Q is every bit as good. In fact their Q has less fat, fewer strange bits of pig, and more smoke than the other place in town. I like their sides as well. Very clean and friendly service without long lines. Just fine.

“The best southern BBQ!”
Reviewed August 26, 2013

Friendly helpful staff, delicious barbecue, slaw and we love the hushpuppies and sweet tea! We also like to do the bulk takeout, it is great to have when visiting friends while in town.

“heart attack on a plate. And worth it!”
Reviewed July 18, 2013

I had the two-piece white meat platter with fries and cole slaw. My husband had the shrimp platter and there must have been 75 little fried shrimp on the plate! Mine was wonderful and he said his was, also. Sweet tea rounded out our meals, of course.
