nothing fancy, we stopped for lunch on way back to Florida. All 3 of us got the meat plus 2 sides. Chicken, both fried and baked was delicious. veggies are salty but thats the way they fix 'em in the south. I would definitely stop back again. Good eats-cheap!

Probably one of best kept secrets in our area is the EXPERIENCE of shopping at Smith's Red and White Grocery Store next to their restaurant next Door. The restaurant serves their fabulous vinegar based, chopped pork BBQ, slaw and hush puppies and probably the best HOT DOGS in the area! You can find the BESThomemade Caramel and 7 layer Chocolate...

Great Southern cooking, located right off of I-95. You can order sandwiches from the menu or order from their food bar, which will have a rotating selection of items. When we were there, they had fried chicken, pork chops in gravy, ribs, chicken pot pie, turnip greens, black eyed peas, green beans, rice, and mashed potatoes. YUM! Very inexpensive and... More

This local restaurant is WONDERFUL if you love southern soul food. They offer fresh pork products from the Red and White grocery store on the property. You don't want to miss this home-made type food.

Love the lunch special especially the pork tenderloin in gravy and the barbecued ribs. Also favorite veggies are the rutabagas and the cabbage. Friendly service and staff. One of the favorite breakfast and lunch spots for locals.

I eat here as much as possible. Love the cheese biscuits and local sausage. It gets real busy on Saturday mornings, especially around the holidays!

Not sure where to start, this place is wonderful....but don't take my word for it... First, know that it is a stone's throw off of I-95. Actually in small community of Dortches, right at Rocky Mount...in a tiny strip of stores, that include Smith's Red and White (fabulous grocery store). Back to the restaurant....small, cozy tables and some booths. ONLY... More

We ate at Smith's on Wednesday for lunch and it was very good. The place was busy. I had the country fried steak with turnip greens and green beans. My wife had their fried chicken...Needless to say there was nothing left our either of our plates. This place is a little out of the way and is not fancy at... More
