The food was amazing!!! The Brisket was the bomb - highly recommend. I would get just the lean one as it is was better than the "fatty" option. The baked beans were the best I have ever eaten. So going back here when I come to Charlotte again!!!

This is our GO TO restaurant for BBQ that is quintessential Charlotte. The Mac & Cheese is perfect so too is the banana pudding. We take all our out of town guests there and no one is ever disappointed with the quality of food or service.

This restaurant makes a great midweek dinner out. We usually sit at the bar and eat, but also will sit at a table. The service is always good, friendly staff and food is delivered quickly and everythibg on the menu we have tried is good.

My friend took me there for lunch when I visited him just after Christmas. Though it was jammed packed because of The Belk Bowl, we didn't have to wait long. I ordered the pulled pork w/a side of BBQ slaw, sweet potato fries and hush puppies. OMG! The meal was so freaking good. And there was so much that I... More

Midwood is our go to BBQ spot. The brisket is excellent. You have your choice of a fatty cut, lean cut or both. The service has always been great with food fast to the table and hot!

The ribs are delicious. If you like collard greens, you can't get a better side of them than at Midwood Smokehouse. Service is good as well. Parking is a little tough, but I have been fortunate each time I have visited.

I have never had BarBQ this good from anywhere else. Me and POTUS know what is good and I am sure he and I bought more to take home. My lady and Mischelle would not let us in the door, if we did NOT bring them some.
