We are only here in Charlotte for 2 days and we wanted to try well regarded BBQ - Midwood did not disappoint. If you're looking for the unmistakeable smell of an in-house smoker, amazing BBQ baked beans, delish melt-in-your mouth brisket and the warm hospitality of a server like Rachel, this is the place to try. Try the combo platter... More

We went here for lunch and enjoyed the Chicken BBQ sandwich and the Grilled Cheese with brisket. Both dishes were great and the BBQ sauce is amazing. The chicken was a little dry, but it is a BBQ place and the sauce made it perfect. The brisket was well-cooked and tender. The staff was delightful and knowledgable about the food... More

We were very impressed with the Hogapeño dip, pimento cheese fries, and bacon wrapped jalapeños!!! We nearly didn't leave room for the pulled pork sandwiches (with the perfect amount of slaw on top). Mac and cheese and collard greens were great too! Great local brews to wash everything down.

Lived up to the rating, and then some. Food was great and service was, too. We had a variety off the menu and everything was top notch. They "smoke the good stuff" here.

Love this place! The food is always great (Burnt Ends our favorite) and the ambiance is always good too. They have the best music - mostly from the 70's and 80's. Haven't had to wait too long for a table most of the time.

Stopped here for a late lunch on my way to the airport. Yum! Everything a good barbecue place should be and solid beer choices to match.

We visited with our son and his family Midwood Smokehouse and we are sorry we have lived here 32 years and never been. What a great representation of Carolina barbecue in every way. We will be back may get a plate full of burnt ends!

Our son took us there for dinner and we ended up ordering the sampler so we could try a bunch. Excellent flavor, great service and I have already told my friends about it. Really excited to find there is another closer to our home.
