We had reviewed restaurants on Trip Advisor before we arrived in Charlotte and the menu for Midwood Smokehouse definitely caught our attention. The decor was eclectic, the service was friendly and the food was terrific. Ribs were the best ever, hushpuppies were crispy, hot and doughy and the macaroni and cheese did not disappoint. If you're in Charlotte, be sure... More

I've been on a B-B-Q hunt for about a month while I traveled in North Carolina. After flying in to Charlotte, I was hungry and headed over to Midwood Smokehouse. The first thing I noticed on the menu was Burnt Ends (possibly the hardest thing for a B-B-Q restaurant to get right). I had to try them ... And WOW!... More

1. This was my second visit in as many months. 2. Service is great. 3. Pimento Cheese Fries remain a favorite of mine but prefer the chopped pork over the chopped brisket on the fries. 4. Burnt End Plate had good flavor but some of the "ends" were tough. 5. Fat Tire BBQ Sauce on the burnt ends was distinctly... More

Slow service, wait staff seemed friendly but not too interested in speeding you along. Our specific waitperson kept our sodas refilled without prompting and I think we went through at least two full drinks before the food arrived. Lots of TV's so you can have something to watch while you wait.

As a KCBS judge I have eaten some good BBQ across the country. This place delivers competition style brisket in a restaurant setting. I had the beef brisket platter with baked beans and mac n cheese and fried pickles for an appetizer. The tender meat slightly flavored with smoke with beautiful bark edges just meted in your mouth. This place... More

Good selection of NC beers, and the food was good. I had the smoked chicken, and it was good, but not amazing. The mustard-based BBQ and baked beans were incredible. I would go back and try something else.

On our way from the parking lot into the restaurant, a friendly man who lived next door stopped us for a chat. He asked if it was our first time to Midwood and when we said yes, he advised we split the sampler platter. We took his advice and weren't sorry. We ordered pulled pork, brisket, ribs and sausage (you... More

If I could sum up our entire visit to this restaurant, it would be that the beef brisket is phenomenal!! Even as leftovers the next day!!! It was excellent. Hubby had the ribs, our 2yo son had the chicken tenders with mac and cheese and everyone was quite pleased. The portions were pretty big because we all had it again... More

We've been here several times and love the BBQ (and my husband is a BBQ snob --we are from Texas). Good selection of food and beer, fast service, nice atmosphere (and kid friendly section). The only issue we had once was that one of our out of town guests we brought here ordered ribs but they were out. Don't run... More
