Better than other fastfood chain restaurants but my bun was so soggy it made me gag. The meat and fries were good.

We made a quick stop at Smithfield's while driving to Topsail Island. Although the parking lot was packed and the restaurant was quite busy, we were able to walk right up to the counter and order. The employee was very friendly and answered our questions. The food arrived quickly and the gentleman who brought it to us was very friendly... More

All the locations are great. A quick meal puts one back on the road but I always get take out for home too. They even pack the order in ice.

Better than average barbecue restaurant, with good chicken BBQ and baked beans. This is a restaurant to go to if you like or want to try Carolina style barbeque.

The Carolinas are known for their vinegar-based sauce, so don't expect to find any molasses-based sauce here. Smithfield's offers simple pulled pork, slaw, potato salad, beans, hush puppies, and fried chicken. But the best thing on the menu is the Brunswick stew!

Smithfield chicken and barbecue has a very good Carolina style pork. If you're a fan of the vinegar style pork then you will like the barbecue. You also have other items like chicken and barbecue chicken. I would have to say that barbecue has a little bit more vinegar than most other Carolina barbecue spots but is good.

Convenient stop between Raleigh and Wilmington. We split a chicken + BBQ platter and were pleasantly surprised by the amount and taste. Almost converted both of us to vinegar-style BBQ!

Overall, food was good. Potato salad just a little dry, maybe sitting around too long without stirring. Good service, clean establishment
