I had the combo plate comprised of fried chicken & Bar BQ. It was wonderful. The chicken was fried just perfect & the Bar BQ was seasoned just right. I would eat there again when traveling through NC. I wish we had this resturant in VA.

Stopped here on the way to Myrtle Beach after hearing about the NWA "**** the Police" episode at another location. Wasn't as good as I had hoped, The location was easy to get to and the restaurant was super clean. The staff was friendly and attentive. The menu board was difficult to interpret and I could not understand the associate... More

The fried chicken is very good. The sides were tasty, but a little too sweet. The setting was very clean, comfortable, and visually appealling.

5 or 6 couples from our Sunday School class meet here for lunch most Sundays after church. We like that we can enjoy smaller portions of SCNB regionally famous eastern Carolina barbecue, fried chicken like mama used to make, or Brunswick stew. The food is always delicious. Although you order and pay at the counter before you sit down, you... More

Delicious and reasonably priced! We loved the huge chicken tenders, hushpuppies, and the pulled BBQ sandwich. Well staffed, 3 cashiers, food was ready promptly, and several staff were monitoring the dining room to deliver food, refill drinks, and check on the guests.

My family and I stopped here on our Road trip to and from Florida. I was pleased with the friendly service. The dinning area was clean and the food was good. I would recommend eating here.

Wanted to find a great place to pick up a BBQ sandwich. OMG, it was so delicious and mouth watering! I don't eat BBQ that much but when I go down south, I try to find a place that I can order from. This place did not disappoint. If you're ever in the area, do yourself a favor and check... More

Looking for something different that we do not have up north, Smithfield's was indeed a good choice. It is around the corner from the new Hampton Inn. I tried the combo platter. The chicken was perfect, not too spicy, beats the Colonel's which has gone down hill in this reviewers opinion. But back to Smithfield's where I chose to eat... More

This is the closest and most available Smithfield's barbeque close to I-95. The staff is extremely helpful and positive. The sandwiches and food is unique to the region and are a bucket list item that you'll want to make tradition. Sweet tea is very traditionally sweet, but iced with nugget ice. Pulled pork is the banner item, but other offerings... More
