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 a pre-WWII .. read moremovie 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.
