“Great BBQ”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 April 2014

About once a month we stop in and get BBQ and chicken for dinner. It's always good and very reasonably priced. The staff are mainly younger people but they're very attentive and nice. They must have higher expectations for their staff than many of the chain restaurants in the area. Keep up the good work. BTW, their bbq sauce is great. I buy extra jars and use it to cook with.

“Not the typical fried chicken fast food joint.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 January 2014

Smithfield's Chicken 'N Bar-B-Q was totally new to my family and me when we first moved to the Clayton area just over 10 years ago. When the family is in the mood for fried chicken, Smithfield's where we go.

The atmosphere is casual but the service is exceptional.

“Smithfield bbq is worth the trip.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 July 2013 via mobile

Chicken is always the best! We usually get fried chicken but their BBQ chicken is always a good choice. The cole slaw is usualy very good. Their Q is always moist & tasty. They are a true Eastern NC BBQ house. Spicy & moist with a vingar base. If you haven't had eastern NC BBQ before it may take a bit of time to get use to the heat.
