Love the friendliness as soon as you walk in the door. The food is as good as the prices. My friend and I really enjoyed seeing and reading the nostalgic sign's in the dining area. He being a germophobe loved the sink to wash up!!

Went there on a second thought and boy are we happy we did! One of the most tender pork sandwiches, hush puppies to die for, fried chicken like my grandmother use to make, delicious coleslaw from an old family recipe and this was consumed in one lunch setting! To be honest, we made a pig of ourselves and will have... More

Most barbecue places gain a reputation because they have a unique building or offer a unique menu. Smithfield's Chicken and Barbecue is unique because they have 32 locations across eastern North Carolina and in each location they consistently provide delicious eastern NC style barbecue and even more delicious southern fried chicken. I have eaten at only a few of their... More

Stopped with husband and son, on our way to Florida. This place was very clean and the chicken was delicious. The BBQ sauce had a unique flavor, which I'm sure is the North Carolina sauce. Loved the hush puppies! But the ladies that served us were so nice! It was a lovely visit.

Stopped at Smithfield's for dinner. We were a little reluctant thinking it was just typical fast food. Yes you go to a counter and order and the comes out very quick, but it is delivered to your table and they continue to check back with you and get you refills and anything else you need. Very friendly staff and the... More

We stopped in the drive through on 10?24/16 and ordered a 12 piece all white meat chicken meal. Man it was great! And the employees were very nice especially the young lady at the first window who took our order.
