We normally stop at the Zebulon location, but drove through Knightdale this time and decided to stop to this one. The employees were nice and friendly. They delivered the food to our table promptly. It was sort of funny that we had to pay 0.31 cents for each cup of ice because it wasn't included in the family special with... More

Food is good here, but fried foods, and BBQ are a little greasy. I understand by fact of my age how a little older folks can't stand much grease. So, I would recommend this spot for younger people.

Always stop by and pickup on the way back to Virginia. Chicken and BBQ are well prepared and good choice of sides. Never miss the Brunswick Stew. Even packed the take out in a box to help keep warm for the trip home.

As always, the BBQ and hush puppies are delicious. I've learned to ask for my fries to be cooked longer to make them crispy. When you eat them that way....they are SO GOOD! Just a tip if you don't like soft fries. My husband loves the pecan pie for dessert afterwards. Recommend this place if you love Eastern Style BBQ.

This Smithfield's have a drive-thru. Your food is always hot and the potato salad is great. Their baked beans are good too with small pieces of shredded meat in it. "Delicious".

This is a great place to go with families. Reliably good fried chicken and bbq sandwiches. My kids love the hushpuppies and the hot dogs. Service is excellent, and they are always coming to the table to see if you need more tea, etc. Popular spot for the after-church crowd. This place is also one of the only spots in... More

This is a local chain in eastern NC. The food is simple barbecue and fried chicken fair. The Knightdale location is no different. The food is always fresh and warm. The staff is friendly and keeps the restaurant spotless. I've never had a bad meal there.
