We were on our way to a wedding in NC, heading down I85 and we saw a sign for Smithfield's Chicken 'N BBQ that caught our eye so we stopped for a late lunch/early dinner. It was all very bright and new inside and out. The staff was exceptional and the food was fabulous!! We both had the bbq--hubby had the sandwich combo and I had the bbq platter. As fans of NC style bbq, we thoroughly enjoyed our meals. My platter came with 2 sides and hushpuppies so I chose coleslaw (a must for eating NC bbq) and the potato salad (good but not my favorite). The hushpuppies were amazing and were an extra special treat!! One note of caution: if you order "tea" you are going to get sweet tea so if you prefer unsweetened iced tea, be sure to order it that way!! I love sweet tea and Smithfield's did not disappoint!! There was outdoor seating available and also takeout/drive through ordering. The dining room was quite large and the staff came around a few times to offer drink refills and to see if we needed anything else. Definitely worth the stop!!
