Chicken is always good. I don't like pork but family seems to. Hush puppies good. Slaw good. Staff always nice and friendly.

This isn't just any drive through. First of all, great interior dining room. Then perfect service from everyone. Pork sandwich was so tasty. The chicken was obviously made there and not brought in from a bag. Thanks for the carolina experience.

Amazing visit. Inside the new building on arrival - continuous attention from initial greetings, speedy order service, friendliness everywhere, even carrying my order to my car. The food: great BBQ, and chicken. Check out Smithfield's. I

The staff was friendly at this Smithfield's location. We seemed to order a little bit of everything. Everyone enjoyed their food. We have been to many Smithfield's locations and this location seems very average for the Smithfield chain.

I ordered the 2 thigh chicken special with fries, and I bought a banana pudding. The chicken was moist on the inside and crunchy on the outside. The flavor was very good as well. I really did enjoy the banana pudding and the sweet tea. The service in this restaurant was very nice as well.This was the third time I... More

From the time we walked in the door we were greeted by the smiling, friendly workers. Our questions were answered about the dishes we were looking at. Even got to sample the Brunswick stew! It was good, we brought some home. The staff was very accommodating and the bar-b-q delicious. Would recommend this place. We will be back! Mr. Lee... More

I frequently come here. This visit was for their tea with crushed ice (perfect) & their Brunswick stew - how can you refuse an extra pint for $1 when you purchase 1 for regular price. Perfect to give away to a great co-worker! Love their fried chicken, barbecue pork, potato salad & cole slaw. Always a favorite of my family... More

This seemed like a cheap chain restaurant complete with poor service and relatively dirty surroundings. Bbq sandwich was cold and not very good. Fries were ok. Would not return.

I personally did not care for my food. My 6yo son refused to eat his BBQ chicken. It was a piece of fried chx with a bunch of East Carolina style BBQ sauce poured over it. He and I are not fans of vinegary sauces. My 3yo daughter got chx tenders. My husband enjoyed his food but he isn't a... More
