The best shrimp, fries, brunswick stew and chicken in town! The location is clean and right off the exit. If you like sweet tea, you are in for a treat! Great food and drink.

Had the privilege to stop and chow down on some of my favorite food. There are many things that make it my favorite. How it's cooked, seasoned, appearance on the plate, cleanliness of the surroundings where I am eating, the service whether self or served, the atmosphere of the restaurant, are just a few of those things that make for...

You'd expect good barbecue here, and it is. The real surprise is the chicken which is excellent. The sides are great too. I don't usually like hush puppies, but these are first rate. Very tasty iced tea to wash or all down with. We eat there a couple of times each week.

We stopped at this location on our way to Myrtle Beach, SC. We had planned to stop at one of the Smithfield's on our way. Even though, we got our food to go, the service was excellent and the food was good. The workers whether younger or older are always very nice and helpful. We always look forward to going... More

Growing up in Southeastern North Carolina, my favorite BBQ is the vinegar based chopped pork. Smithfield's is my favorite even though it is a chain restaurant. They have perfected the recipe and the pork is lean, not fatty at all. Their sides are very good too.

The fried chicken was ok and the servicewas efficent. The food was nthing to write home about. Hush Puppies were dry and the chicken was just warm. Added a side of banana pudding which was a huge dissapointment. Had vision of them taking pudding out of a can and filling the plastic cups. They need to look into the manufacturing... More

Everyone says how great the barbecue is so tried it this past Saturday. Service was quick and pleasant. The Cole slaw is typical slaw, not very tangy, potato salad ( to creamy for me) and hush puppies pretty good. The pulled pork did not have much flavor. Some vinegar taste. However the meat was pretty tender, nut a bit disappointing.... More

We stopped in for lunch while on a trip to the mountains. This location has the best BBQ AND SERVICE that we have found. The staff were very friendly and service was top notch! I had the Value Pak and my wife had fried chicken. Will stop there again‼️
