Midwood Smokehouse is where the neighborhood gets their barbecue fix. Our pitmasters burn hickory wood 24 hours a day, seven days a week to bring our customers the barbecue they crave. We set our standards high and cook our meats, low and slow. The vibe is friendly and the beer is cold. Pull up a seat, grab a plate and take it easy at Midwood Smokehouse.

We ordered a rib dinner and chicken dinner. Both were seasoned well, smoky, and delicious. We always visit Midwood when we need our bbq fix. The bbq is the best and always delicious including the sides.

Wife and I went for dinner. Atmosphere is great.Not a fine dinning. Just good neighborhood BBQ place that serves lots of other food. I had the half rack ribs that were bone sucking good. Wife had the Cuban Sandwich which was very good as well.
