I have family in the area, and we always eat at Smithfield's when we're in town visiting. Great, friendly staff. I'm a big fan of their sweet tea and hush puppies!

Good eats here y'all and large portions! Fried chicken was cooked to perfection and the popcorn shrimp had just enough breading but didn't over power the tender shrimps. Great hush puppies-no spicey breading, just the way we like it.

We had been driving through torrential rain from Hurricane Matthew on 10/8/16, leaving our previous vacation at the OBX. Many businesses were closed and we were so excited to find Smithfield's open.

Stopped in for lunch, first time we've been to a Smithfield's restaurant. We ordered fried chicken & pulled pork BBQ, shrimp, slaw, & baked beans between the 2 of us. Fried chicken was very good! BBQ was different, not my favorite. Sides were very good, the hush puppies were large and 6 came with each meal. Battered shrimp were small... More

Good NC style pulled pork BBQ. My wife likes their chicken and red sauce but I always stick to the large barbecue plate and vinegar sauce. The brunswick stew is pretty good too.

The food is good. You get a lot of it and it's fairly cheap. We have family in the area so whenever we are in town we always stop by once or twice during our visit.

I really like Smithfield's. Their BBQ is very good, as well as the sides that come with it. I also like the chicken tenders.
