We were in Carolina for a day and decided to stop in for some Carolina barbecue, my favorite. I had the Burnt Ends (brisket cubes) with Mac & Cheese and smoked veggies, my partner had the half rack of ribs with sweet potato fries. The burnt ends were delicious! A perfect mixture of lean cuts with some ridiculously good caramelized... More

We were searching out some bbq on a Sunday and TA reviews brought us here. The building and atmosphere have a fun vibe. Our server was very helpful & friendly. The brisket and pulled pork are great and we loved the smoked sausages. I was happy with the wide variety of sauces...particularly the habanero and signature midwood. Nice touches included... More

The place gets packed, but once you eat there you'll know why. The brisket really was the best I've ever eaten and I have eaten a lot! The mac and cheese is better than grandma's! I wish I lived closer!

Was at a party for my sons school and this place did the catering. I ate the Macaroni & Cheese and fell in love. To be sure it was the best I bought a platter of it and served it at Thanksgiving Dinner for about 12 people. Everyone confirmed my feeling and felt it was the best they had eaten... More

Terrific food and cheerful service. ALL the food is well done. The sauces are good and if I could one thing, I would out the sauces in bottles and the bottles on the table. It's a pain to bother the server for another little serving of the great Midwood sauce and the equally fine Hamanero sauce. This is real food,... More

Love their brisket, very tender and juicy. The small touches and sides like the pickled onions on the plate, bbq slaw and cream corn make this a great spot to visit. The midwood sauce is best by far of their four selections.

We are suckers for BBQ and the smoke house delivers! Their brisket is fabulous, along with their ribs and sausage. Get a combo plate if you go so you can sample everything. We usually do not eat a lot of meat, but when we go "rogue" the smokehouse cannot be beat. I personally think it is better than Mac's speed... More

We and everyone we've ever taken to Midwood love the place. Not only are their regular brunch, lunch and dinner menus spectacular, they are also great for hosting large parties and for catering. We go there very regularly.

Game is coming on tv. Don't want to grill or spend all day in the kitchen. Head on over to the Midwood Smokehouse. I want barbeque. But I'm not sure if I want Eastern or Western style.

Went for dinner, I had the pulled BBQ chicken plate and he had burnt ends. My chicken was amazingly good. You really didn't need any sauce because it was full of flavor. The burnt ends were good as well although they cut pieces of burnt ends. We're used to pulled but still tasty. We had the beef brisket queso and... More
