This is the closest and most available Smithfield's barbeque close to I-95. The staff is extremely helpful and positive. The sandwiches and food is unique to the region and are a bucket list item that you'll want to make tradition. Sweet tea is very traditionally sweet, but iced with nugget ice. Pulled pork is the banner item, but other offerings... More

Great service with a welcome and a smile always. Smithfields restaurants are always clean.This place has the best fried chicken you will eat anywhere. The pork barbecue is OK and will "get you by" ,but I would not call it true eastern NC style pork BBQ (not cooked with wood-best you will find nearby, though). Ask for the rib sauce... More

The employees are very friendly with great service. The food to me is not as great as it is to some people. My likes it, I don't like the pulled pork, which is the whole reason I went. The hush puppies & fries were really good though.

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

This restaurant is awesome. Very roomy sit down café type setting. You order at the front and it is brought to you. The food is out of this world. I ordered the Combo white which was 2 pc white chicken & bbq. ($9.49) Their fried chicken is awesome. My sides were cole slaw and potato salad and both of those... 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
