I’ve picked up smoked turkey, brisket, and lots of sides at Midwood Smokehouse the past two years. Delicious meal that only requires heating up on Thanksgiving Day, and enough to feed a crowd. Highly recommended over the usual meals offered by supermarkets.

Went with coworkers a few times and it does not disappoint. I love the salads and the salmon is great. They have several different sauces so make sure they explain them to your table. Great private room for parties of 10-15.
