We had the combo platter. It’s enough food for 2 meals. The bbq is moist with a light vinegar style sauce. The chicken was out of this world. Great meal to pick up for those busy weekday nights.

This is one of those establishments that I frequent often. Usually just the drive thru to take it home and relax. Prices are great. Nice portions. Barbecue sandwich is always heaping of meat. And fries are always plentiful.

Perfect for fast feeding a whole crew. Eastern BBQ if you like that, or I am sure they have the sugar sauce. Always great!

Always a good place to stop for a quick meal. Also a good opportunity to pay it forward by paying the tab for the car behind you in the drive up.

Yep my trip to NC was spent eating at every Smithfield I passed. So good, great service, great food, lots of calories. I'm still eating it because I brought an entire suitcase of frozen BBQ home. I ate in the restaurant, I ate take out....More

Chicken is always good. I don't like pork but family seems to. Hush puppies good. Slaw good. Staff always nice and friendly.

This isn't just any drive through. First of all, great interior dining room. Then perfect service from everyone. Pork sandwich was so tasty. The chicken was obviously made there and not brought in from a bag. Thanks for the carolina experience.

Amazing visit. Inside the new building on arrival - continuous attention from initial greetings, speedy order service, friendliness everywhere, even carrying my order to my car. The food: great BBQ, and chicken. Check out Smithfield's. I

The staff was friendly at this Smithfield's location. We seemed to order a little bit of everything. Everyone enjoyed their food. We have been to many Smithfield's locations and this location seems very average for the Smithfield chain.

I ordered the 2 thigh chicken special with fries, and I bought a banana pudding. The chicken was moist on the inside and crunchy on the outside. The flavor was very good as well. I really did enjoy the banana pudding and the sweet tea....More

You will have to call the restaurant, I am sure they will be happy to assist you. They catered our facility Christmas party once & while I don't remember the cost, I remember it was reasonable.
