Went for dinner, fast enough, no beverage with large platter, odd. Vinegar base hot sauce. Creamy potato salad, oniony beans. Pork was not dry, pulled.

We've gone here several times and have never been disappointed. The chicken is good, the hushpuppies as well. I'd like to see them have some home made macaroni and cheese; definitely would return.

Smithfields chicken and barbq is the only fried chicken restaurant we go to. We’ve eaten inside and had friendly efficient service. We do use the drive through most often and are never disappointed. I’d highly recommend this place.

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.
