Featuring a full-service restaurant and an extensive retail shop that features the best hams in the world, 240 different flavors of peanuts, and memorabilia from our little town. Taste of Smithfield is a place that captures the true history and atmosphere of Smithfield. We don’t just serve great food at an affordable price, we absolutely love doing it. After walking through our doors, you are met with the smiling faces of our employees. Take a load off and have a seat at our restaurant. Enjoy some of our many menu items including: 1/2 pound 100% Certified Angus beef burgers, signature sandwiches served on gourmet breads, fresh salads with greens from local growers (seasonal), homemade soups, delicious sides and homemade desserts. During dinner, enjoy a pint of one of our four new craft beers on draft from some of Virginia's best micro-brewers, a glass of wine from Virginia's beautiful vineyards, or a cup of gourmet coffee. After eating, enjoy samples of our signature peanuts within the retail shop. While snacking on some of our most mouthwatering peanut flavors such as Salt and Pepper, check out our signature hams that made Smithfield the brand they are today.
