We were on the way home to Georgia from Roanoke Rapids with my family, and we wanted to find a BBQ restaurant to eat at instead of the usual fast food stop. We searched the Internet and found Midwood Smokehouse. It was a little out of our way, and we had to wait for a little while; however, it was... More

If you like NC BBQ, you won't be disappointed with Midwood's pulled pork, just the right mix of vinegar and smoke to make the barbecue lover very happy. Brisket came out nice as well with good smoke and nice moisture remaining in the beef. Sides were a bit disappointing with the coleslaw working as an accompaniment to the pork, but... More

My wife and I were driving through Charlotte at lunchtime on our way to Greenville, SC and decided to eat at Midwood. We shared the combo plate and had pork ribs, bbq pork, smoked sausage, beef brisket, onions, baked beans, french fries and hush puppies. What a feast! Everything we had was absolutely delicious. Midwood has different bbq sauces and... More

My first visit was this week with a customer, couldn't have been any better! The brisket was fabulous, even the slaw ( you just can't find good slaw!) was awesome! On top of all this, I made the sell. Good eats and making money...oh yeah!

We ordered an array of things for the family. It was mid week but still busy in the evening. Simple BBQ, jalapeños wrapped in bacon!, brisket, yum. We wanted one of the specials, but they already were low.... We were told we could have it as a side but not a main dish....hmmmmmm. Enjoyed it anyhow!

Took my Father for Fathers Day! Love the Bar-b-que and Mac-n-cheese. The atmosphere is very relaxed and the service is great.

Charlotte is mid-state and in NC this is a BBQ problem. So they compromise. For the better and the worse. But the meat is good, the place is comfy, server fine, great beer selection, and large portions (you know you need that snack later). We had a variety plate with pulled pork, brisket and ribs. I'm the pork fiend and... More

This restaurant did not disappoint. My husband and I stopped here on out way out of NC. We wanted to get some NC BBQ before leaving the state. My husband got the brisket with jalapeño poppers and hush puppies as sides. I got the BBQ chicken salad. Both were very good! The service was excellent! We loved their BBQ sauce... More

All of the wonderful reviews are true! The food and service are phenomenal! Aside from all the delicious barbecue, be sure to try Tito's Kicking Mule, the bacon wrapped jalapeños, and the pecan cobbler with ice cream.

Thank Megan Danielle P
