Stuck in Charlotte...and found Midwood and it was a GREAT find! Food was awesome and it hit the spot. Manager (Robert...I hope that was his name) was awesome by stopping by our table. Helped us make the best of our layover. Ashley provided great service and knowledge about the local breweries...which lead to visit NoDA brewery!

I moved to Charlotte from Nashville,Tennessee a few years ago, and I can undoubtedly say the Midwood Smokehouse beef brisket is by far the best I've eaten in Charlotte... very tender, juicy, flavorful and lean. Also, the baked beans are delicious. They have a wonderful, thick texture with a perfectly sweet, tangy, spicy balance. Combined with the great sauces and... More

Midwood serves great BBQ with something for everyone. It is a casual dining place with excellent service to go along with great food. Not too far from downtown, this suburban eatery is worth visiting.

Fantastic smoked bbq and enthusiastic service (shout out to Drew). My wife and I split the "well fed combo" with extra ribs and it was perfect. Don't miss the Pecan Cobbler... even if you haven't saved room!

This review is long overdue. I travel on business and seek out good restaurants as part of what makes the time away from home bearable. I was in Charlotte for 6 months and ate here no less than 10 times. The food was excellent every time but twice. One of those times I ordered ribs and I thought they were... More

Only one way to describe Midwood Smokehouse: amazing. Based on reviews here and other sites, Midwood is the best barbeque in Charlotte and one of the top rated restaurants as well. Went with family and had a little of everything. Highly recommend the burnt ends and brisket, smoked 14 hours in a modified diesel smoker in the kitchen and served... More

Awesome ribs - best I've had in the Carolinas. Save some room for dessert as the Pecan Cobbler was also great. Atmosphere and service also huge plusses. Overall a great experience and we look forward to our next trip there.

My wife, son and I went to Charlotte (a 4 hr drive) for a July 4th holiday trip. We like to try local restaurants and look for trendy neighborhoods that have them. Midwood was a great experience. Food was of high quality, our server was very nice and we have no complaints. Parking is scarce but if you go at... More

This crew has certainly managed to create comsistantly excellent BBQ related dishes. The only variation that I have seen (not a bad thing) is the consistent surprised in the variation of spicy-ness in the Bacon-Wrapped Jalapeño Poppers.

I came here with some friends on Saturday. After scouring Yelp, driving around town, and ruling out some places that have been featured on various TV shows (but had terrible ratings), we agreed on this place. We decided to sample a little of everything: The fried pickles were pretty good, if you’re into that sort of thing. (I heard that... More
