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.

Management is letting this location run down. Totally uncoordinated, half the orders left to get cold while they run out of chicken. End of an era. Prices... (more)

Great location. Always fast and courteous. The banana pudding is my favorite. I don't each much fried chicken but the BBQ is awesome!
