Love this place so much have been here at least 6 times in 4 months! Terrific fried chicken, pulled pork, baked beans and slaw. You get 2 dozen hush puppies when you order an 8 piece bucket. Very clean and quick.

Love Eastern NC barbeque and Smithfield’s never disappoints. Delicious barbeque, hush puppies, and slaw. Have been coming here for years, and will continue whenever I’m in the area.

Last review said “skip it”. And that’s what we should have done. Chicken was ok with plenty of skin and coating but they don’t serve ribs and we didn’t like the barbecue pork sandwich or the barbecue sauce.
Just not our kind of place.

First time here & not impressed. My sons ordered their sandwiches with No Slaw but got slaw. They switched it out unapologetically. I'm typically a fan of Eastern NC Bbq but ours was way overpowered by the vinegar... all you could taste plus the meat was dried out. Sides were unimpressive...Baked beans seemed like they were straight out of a can and potato salad was bland. On the up side the sweet tea was good.
