“If you're a first timer, get the sampler plate”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 15, 2014

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 can pick four of five and we passed on the chicken) along with sides of coleslaw and smoked veggies (which I'd never had before). The food was absolutely delicious. We will never stop in Charlotte again without eating a meal here. The restaurant was clean, our waiter was very patient with all our questions and provided excellent service and the manager even stopped by to check in (which I always think is great). We talked about that meal all day. Can't wait to go back.

“Delicious!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 11, 2014

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 fo rlunch the next day. The service was great as well and they were all very accommodating, even the hostess. We had such a good time here. It's a good thing that we don't live in NC because we'd be too tempted to eat here every week!!!

“Delicious Carolina BBQ!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 9, 2014 via mobile

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 out of food!

“Amazing every time!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 6, 2014

This was our 2nd visit here and it is still as great as when we ate here 4 years ago! My husband got the brisket and I got the chicken with the mustard sauce and it is the best barbecue we have ever had..hands down. The brownie is awesome for dessert as well! The only downside is parking, because when they are busy, parking can be an issue as it is located downtown Charlotte, but it's worth it! A must try when in Charlotte!
