We were passing through in early afternoon, not at a lunch rush time. The test to me of a good place is hot and fresh food in 'off' hours. Wow! This place delivered hot, crisp, fat chicken tenders. The best I've eaten. French fries are...More

Always enjoyable and quality food for a decent price at Smithfield's. The menu is the same all over, which makes it easy to find what you want. Good barbeque and chicken. Sides are typical and again, consistent.

This chain restaurant was filled with seemingly happy customers. Their fried chicken was so juicy and their hush puppy sides were good. This is another home style restaurant that people can't get enough of. Families were there celebrating birthdays for young and old. The prices...More
