Where it all began...

When the original Smithfield's Chicken 'N Bar-B-Q opened in downtown Smithfield in 1964, it was just called Smithfield's. The location was next to a pre-WWII movie theater, a tall brick box with tin ceilings, cloth awnings, and a sink in the dining room so the farmers could wash up before supper. Since then, we have grown to over 30 restaurants serving Eastern N.C. style (or vinegar-based ) BBQ, potato salad, cole slaw, fried chicken, and sweetened iced tea. At Smithfield's Chicken 'N Bar-B-Q, we focus exclusively upon creating the most enjoyable dining experience possible for our customers. We are committed to being exceptional hosts, always serving fresh food fast, with superior service and quality - while never wasting time, food, nor forgetting our manners. At Smithfield's Chicken 'N Bar-B-Q, we are grateful to serve.
