It has been a while since I had eaten at Smithfield's and I have been craving their bar b-que. Every time up til now was alright, except the chicken would be a little too greasy. But like I said it has been a while since I've eaten here, maybe three years. Well my parents decided to get chicken, slaw, potato salad, bar-b-que, and hush puppies. Sounds good right? Well I began to dig in the food on my plate and was almost done w/ my bar-b-que when I saw something black on my plate.
I looked at it twice and realized it was a dead fly as stiff as a board. I could not believe what I saw. I didn't say anything b/c I didn't want everyone to panic. I thought about telling my parents so they could get their money back, but I didn't know if Smithfield's would claim I put it there or what. I just checked the rest of the bar-b-que to be sure there wasn't another one. I do know I don't want to eat there anymore. Horrible! I know mistakes happen, but a fly????

Pros: A good combination of food

Cons: You never know what's lurking in the food.

The BBQ sandwiches are great. The fried chicken is great. The slaw is good, and the potato salad is especially good. While the sandwich is very good, I do not recommend eating the Q by itself. It is a little too dry for that. But it makes a great sandwich. The tea is outstanding. This really is a very good place. But I would not put it on my list of the Very Best. It's basically fast-food Q.

I am from NC- born and raised. Smithfield Bar b que offers that great NC known vinegar based sauce for the Bar b que. I have traveled to many southern states for my job but nothing beats Smithfield!

Pros: Fast, Inexpensive

Cons: Crowds at lunch

Even though it's is not the mustard based BBQ I'm used to, this BBQ was not even grilled! If you don't see any smoke coming out of a BBQ restaurant - DO NOT STOP THERE! The vinegar-based sauce was nasty.

Being a native Floridian with parents from Eastern North Carolina, i crave this BBQ. I go to NC 3-4 times a year and although I have never eaten at the Smithfields in Raleigh I have eaten at other locations. This BBQ is by far the best! In fact, we always stop in Goldsboro before we get on 95 and make sure we get some frozen to bring home with us! Sweet Tea - your mom can't even make it this good!

Smithfields is OK if you've just got to have some BBQ right this very minute ... but to make the top 10? And to the be top representative of North Carolina BBQ? I think not. Smithfield's ranks high on speed ... low on flavor. For real NC BBQ, you need to visit Parker's in Wilson, NC ... or perhaps even Wilber's in Goldsboro, NC (don't forget to ask for some BBQ chicken gravy to go with your BBQ pork). Try one of those, and you'll see what real the real thing tastes like.

Pros: giant drink sizes, fast service, one in every town

Cons: bland taste, poor value, one in every town

I am from Morehead City, North Carolina and Smithfield's Bar-B-Q is THE BEST.
My husband has been in the military for 15 years and we have traveled all over the world, literary, so being from the south I have to have my Bar-B-Q, coleslaw, sweet ice tea and hushpuppies.
I have tasted some okay, just get me by until I get back home for a visit to Smithfield's, Bar-B-Q but nothing has ever come close.

Overall, a great restaurant. You always get good food and service. In fact, i have eaten at many higher priced restaurants and not been half as impressed. Perfect blend of fast food and Quality.

Sweet tea, barbecue, fried chicken, and banana pudding. All are good. The place has a pretty good atmosphere, but it is just a step above fast food. They do bring the food to your table and bring refills. You order at a counter and the place can get busy. The food is good. They have a fried chicken and barbecue combo.
