LOVED our lunch at Midwood Smokehouse this afternoon. We're essentially local to Charlotte with my in-laws here but never tasted BBQ so great until today.

They have a great smoked 1/2 chicken with two sides for $10. Can't beat that. And doesn't hurt that one of the sides is bacon-wrapped jalapeno peppers - which are delicious. Great salads, brisket and sides. Always bustling A great neighborhood joint.

Loved their brisket and the Mac n Cheese side is killer good. We actually visited the Ballantyne location and the service was excellent and atmosphere friendly.

Growing up in Charlotte I have had the opportunity to dine at many BBQ establishments. Hands down, Midwood Smokehouse has the best brisket in town. Until you try it, you have no idea what you've been missing!

Our second visit, both times tasty BBQ and sides. Good selection of draft beer. We try to go during the week after lunch crowd, otherwise can be a long wait.

You cant go wrong at Midwood. I am so happy they added a Ballantyne location. The BBQ, brisket and wings are all excellent. My son LOVES the burnt ends. These are my favorite beans ....so much flavor. Whenever we have guests in town this is our go to spot when people want to try the local BBQ. Everyone we bring... More

I was expecting corporate, mundane, repetitive. I got tasty, creative, and enjoyable! A very pleasant surprise. Not underdone, tasteless, greasy pork but well-crafted, very tender barbecue, well turned ribs, excellent habanero sauce, and some nice takes on side dishes (including my favorites collards and sweet potatoe fries).

I have eaten here a number of times for business lunches during the week and I have always been pleased! You need to come early (prior to 11:30 AM) or late (after 1:30 PM) if you do not want to wait but you can usually belly up to the bar and eat. Parking mid-day can get crazy... another reason to...
