Smithfield's fried chicken is the best...tender and juicy. The staff is friendly and helpful, great food at reasonable prices. We always look for Smithfield's when traveling in NC and wish they would expand to SC! We prefer ketchup based BBQ so an unflattering review about BBQ would be unfair.

This is a nice clean, well managed fastfood restaurant.. The chicken is by far the best in town specifically the chicken snack. The BBQ is just OK. Drive thru is fast and efficient. Service inside is mainly delivery of food and refresh of drinks but it is very good!

Smithfield's always has good hot food with large portions for the money! Everyone is so friendly! You place your order and pay then sit down and they deliver your food! They are available to refill your drinks and any thing else you may need. Food is always consistent!

Stopped here for BBQ choosing Smithfield over another BBQ place right across the street, was disappointed, shrimp was just ok, but BBQ was inedible, had pieces of fat skin and other unidentifiable things in it. Some may like it that way but it appeared to me that someone had not cleaned it thoroughly. Couldn't eat it. So I ate the... More

This is a fast food style restaurant with above average food. The prices are very reasonable and the service is on par with chick-fil-a. This is the second one of these we've eaten at and were not at all disappointed. Waiting for them to come to Myrtle Beach.

Smithfield is very good BBQ for a fast food restaurant. If you get the value pack you get a sandwich (with slaw) fires (lots) and a drink, you can't go wrong and will not leave hungry. This is a must stop on family trips for us when traveling to the beach.

The best shrimp, fries, brunswick stew and chicken in town! The location is clean and right off the exit. If you like sweet tea, you are in for a treat! Great food and drink.

Had the privilege to stop and chow down on some of my favorite food. There are many things that make it my favorite. How it's cooked, seasoned, appearance on the plate, cleanliness of the surroundings where I am eating, the service whether self or served, the atmosphere of the restaurant, are just a few of those things that make for...

You'd expect good barbecue here, and it is. The real surprise is the chicken which is excellent. The sides are great too. I don't usually like hush puppies, but these are first rate. Very tasty iced tea to wash or all down with. We eat there a couple of times each week.

Thank Harry P
