Smithfield BBQ Restaurant

A large ceramic sink with a generous mirror and stack of paper towels.

  • next to the order counter
  • next to the front door
  • next to the tables and booths.

Presumably there are moments

  • when eating vinegar/mustard slaw, eastern Carolina pulled-pork, and baked beans
  • when table napkins are not enough,
  • when a trip to the restroom is extreme
  • when a diner has to roll up his sleeves, plunge hands into a basin of soapy water and clean up before, during, or after a big meal.
