We went while a friend was at work while visiting Charlotte. Great staff! We tried the platter of all the meat! Everything was great but the beef brisket was our favorite.

Delicious meal, worth the wait. A great taste of Southern cooking with great BBQ meats. We enjoyed the banana pudding desert too! The prices were very reasonable.

This BBQ is worth the trip. The atmosphere is perfect for a plate of BBQ like you've never had! We've tried chicken, pork and beef and I honestly couldn't say which one is best. The sides are amazing. Not your typical BBQ and standard side dish meal. FYI, I knew about this place before Clinton and Obama did!! Of all... More

Possibly the BEST barbecue in Charlotte. The brisket is perfect! The eatery itself is very clean and centrally located so it is really easy to find. You will not be disappointed with this choice.

We have been to Midwood Smokehouse on Johnston Road on several occasions. Always excellent! The serve staff has been attentive and helpful every time. I always order the very flavorful Beef Brisket every time (LEAN not regular). The regular brisket tends to have a good bit more fat than I prefer. It comes with a little dollop of pickled onions...

This is where the locals go. Great beans and hushpuppies. The brisket is the star. If you like "burnt ends" you just have to ask. Great craft beer selection. Parking can be limited at times.
