What’s for Dinner?

    Dining out can be fast and convenient if you need it to be while you are driving down the road, or a tasty home-cooked Southern style buffet like Meadow Village Restaurant. But, if you consider yourself a "foodie" and want to support locally sourced foods from our area farmers -- you will find that in JoCo as well. Several chef-owned eateries are available in Smithfield like Simple Twist and Under the Oak giving visitors a true farm-to-fork experience. And coming soon... award-winning chef Scott Crawford will be opening his first casual concept restaurant in Clayton!

    Our website has a variety of categories to help you decide...BBQ eastern-style, Red Hot Dogs (What?), Something Sweet, and of course, a list of all dining in the county! In addition, check out the multiple food trails we've complied to help lovers of certain foods and drinks (coffee anyone?!) find places they'll love.

    Dining Tip! The tea will be sweet so you might want to order it "half and half", that means half sweet and half unsweet!
