Carolinian BBQ charm

The walk-in size smoker will impress you. The place is clean, the food is good but I would recommend ordering the large plate because the small one is sampling/appetizer size. The burnt-end brisket I got was mouth savoring good.

Family member was in from out if town, and wanted to treat him to North Carolina BBQ. Decided to try something different, and found Midwood. Upon entering the smell was delicious. We started with the wings, and they were superb. They were not buffalo style, DEFINITELY smoked. Delicious. Two of us had the pork platter with collards. Collards were tasty,... More

As other reviewers have noted, the burnt ends and brisket are very good. The service and ambience could be worked on. Call in ahead for carry out orders or grab a beer while you wait.

Food us usually good. The burnt ends are great. They also have great pulled pork. The service however is just average and can be somewhat slow and frustrating.

The food is amazing! My favorite thing after the pulled pork is the roasted vegetables. Staff is great and I like the upbeat atmosphere.

Service at the bar was terrific, since the place was totally filled up with a 20 minute wait the Saturday we were there for lunch. Quality of the pulled pork was good, not the type of sauce we were used to having, however. (We thought a Texas style sauce but they didn't have that type.) The burnt ends were good,... More

Midwood Smokehouse is quite possibly the best BBQ in Charlotte. The atmosphere is great. The BBQ is second to none. I have personally tried the brisket and pork. The sauces are unique. The sides just add to the experience. If you hit it at the busy time you can expect to wait a while so be prepared. It is well... More

This place has the best Brisket ever!! The place is always busy so be prepared to wait. I can't wait to Check out the new Ballantyne location.

B-B-Q is surely the fastest growing food genre in the country, and NC is home to many fine B-B-Q restaurants, but Midwood Smokehouse is the new king of the genre! Everything on the menu is exceptional, and every time I go, all of the people at my table get very quiet when they eat (because the food is so good,... More

We were told that there was a 45 minute wait when we arrived. After waiting we were seated the waitress was very friendly and took our order. We ordered the pimento cheese fries, Carolina pork, and burnt ends. The fries at first I didn't care for them, but after the second bite these things were amazing, I am glad I... More
