This deep-fried fare may disappoint northerners who when they see the name including the word "Bar-B-Q" assume they will pits and grills. Instead it is the usual deep-fried offering with some delicious chicken breast. Don't expect too much more and you will be...ok.

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

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...More

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!
