We've never been here before. Visiting the area for a couple of days and turned in on a fluke. Looks like a typical fast food place. There was a drive thru and you walk up to the counter to place your order. That is where the comparison between this restaurant and most fast food restaurants differ. The greeting was pleasant...

No matter how many times you eat at a Smithfield's it's always the same. This Smithfield's is always good and the staff is very friendly and willing to help you.

My husband and I came here for dinner on a Monday night. Few people were there, but I see that as a plus. The location is good, especially if you're in one of the nearby hotels, but it is hard to get out of with no light and a busy road. The service was excellent! Everyone was extremely friendly and...

I am BBQ freak - other than my homemade they have the best around. Excellent slaw, hush puppies & fried chicken. No problems with quality of food - just expensive.

Whether I'm looking for a quick lunch or a take out I always get great service at Smithfields. I have used their catering for a birthday party and food was hot and ready on time for pick up. If you like southeastern BBQ this is a great place.

This might be a chain but every store is different. We tried this one because it's a NC thing to do (BBQ). And we keep going back!

Smithfield's Chicken 'N Bar-B-Q is a small chain that has been around since 1964, but for some reason we had never stopped in until this last vacation.We won't wait that long before our next visit. The BBQ sandwich was very good and there were a few sauces available,fries decent and the tea a combo of 1/2 regular and 1/2 sweet... More

Went to the Smithfield's Restaurant in the Ogden area last night with several of my friends. The food was delicious as always. The service was great; the staff was very attentive to us during our visit. If you want great barbeque pork, fried chicken or shrimp then go to this Smithfield's Restaurant.

Great food! Fast service from friendly people. Restaurant is always clean. The BBQ pork and chicken, Brunswick Stew, coleslaw, potato salad, hush puppies are all excellent...every time! The photo at the top of this page is NOT a Smithfield's BBQ location!
