I've lived here 27 years in North Carolina. That being said, every birthday party and church Gathering I've been to has almost 90% been catered by Smithfield Chicken & Barbecue. So even if I'm a little tired and burned out of Smithfield's I'm going to give this an unbiased North Carolina Review. First off the restaurant as a whole is... More

This was my first time here and I was not disappointed. The food, service, and price was fantastic. The potato salad, beans, coleslaw, BBQ, and chicken was great. PLEASE try the pecan pie it was fantastic also. They also had a 95% sanitation rating.

Smithfields is one of the best restaurants that I go to. The food is top notch, hot and provided very fast. The employees are some of the best in any business. They circulate ensuring that your trash nis removed and drinks stay full. I don't think I have ever had chicken so tasty. Lot forward to eating there when ever... More

Whenever we gather, our family loves to get BBQ from Smithfield's. And their shrimp is a favorite now as well. They are small-sized shrimp and very lightly breaded. On a recent trip to visit family in Jacksonville, we ate here. Friendly staff and consistent quality food. Hybrid serving system can be confusing for customers. You order from the counter and...

We were eating quite late after a busy evening and stopped at Smithfield's. The combo plates we ordered were just OK, in flavor and in presentation. The server who delivered the food that we ordered at the counter seemed exhausted and distracted. I tried to ask for silverware that she forgot, but she disappeared too fast. Getting someone's attention at... More

We try to stop at Smithfield's on our way to Emerald Isle for lunch. It is quick and the service is super friendly. Nice for us since we don't often get North Carolina barbecue

This place has great food. The service is fast and the people who work there are friendly. You can't beat the bbq. You really can't go wrong with anything on the menu. It's all delicious.
