Always enjoyable and quality food for a decent price at Smithfield's. The menu is the same all over, which makes it easy to find what you want. Good barbeque and chicken. Sides are typical and again, consistent.

You can't go wrong at this place. The barbeque sandwich is so good, not taking away from all the other foods. Exceptional place to eat and the hospitality is the best around. Very friendly and always eager to help anyway possible. I highly recommend to anyone wanting chicken or barbeque.

We went to this restaurant for a casual dinner and the food was very good. Most of us had Barbecue and really enjoyed it. They give you a bunch of French fries and that was good because they were great.

I have been to Smithfield Chicken & BBQ on many occasions and enjoy the BBQ as well as the fried and BBQ chicken. The potato salad, cole slaw, and hush puppies are always good. If you enjoy desert they have individually packaged Sara Lee pecan pie. The other desert option is banana pudding with vanilla wafers. The employees are always... More

This place has such good reviews we decided to stop to eat. The restaurant is cute, but that is the only good thing about it. The "bbq" doesn't have any smoked flavor, and seems to be baked chicken or pork with a strong vinegar-slightly sweet sauce. The coleslaw has a similar vinegar sauce. The pork is very tender. Although to... More

This chain restaurant was filled with seemingly happy customers. Their fried chicken was so juicy and their hush puppy sides were good. This is another home style restaurant that people can't get enough of. Families were there celebrating birthdays for young and old. The prices are very reasonable and there is BBQ sauce enough to go around. I had their... More

Delicious chicken and bbq. I like their sweet tea. Service is great, friendly. Although it's 'fast food', it's nice that you can order, have a seat and they bring the food to your table.

This is a fried chicken and Carolina BBQ place mainly. Chicken tenders were very large and crispy. Potato salad is good along with the baked beans. Hush puppies are very tasty. BBQ has a little kick to it but you can always had more sauce if you like it hot!

Every time I finish eating here I think to myself why did you eat there but I seem to repeat it every six to nine months. This place is bland nothing special and expensive.
