“Yummy BBQ, great atmosphere”
Reviewed December 22, 2013

Got stranded in Charlotte for the night and had to try some BBQ, made the cab ride out to experience it. There is a wide selection of local beers, guest beers, and bottled beers. The food was delicious and the atmosphere laid back. Worth the journey!

“Midwood Smokehouse”
Reviewed December 17, 2013 credit card Amex Card Member Review

Barbeque to die for. Love Carolina barbeque. Service was great considering a busy Saturday afternoon. Lotza TV's and ball games and noise like a good barbeque joint should be on game day.

“If you like BBQ”
Reviewed December 10, 2013 via mobile

We had to try it, were in area and wanted to try out different fare. Not the best BBQ I have had, but very good. You will not be disappointed, meat was not overdone and dry as it can be sometimes.

“....More Barbecue”
Reviewed December 4, 2013 via mobile

I'm visiting Charlotte for a few days and have been trying the different BBQ joints. I rated Macs Speed Shop with three stars....Therefore, I have to rate this with two stars.
I had the Burnt Ends which were delicious. The BBQ slaw was also great. Jalapeños wrapped in bacon were only ok and the hush puppies were rather tasteless. Mac and cheese was made with sharp cheese and was good.The waitress and staff were friendly and helpful. Although they were using a Dustbuster to clean the floor around some empty tables while we were eating...not something I care to listen to while eating!
The atmosphere is very plastic. The place was a bit of a disappointment.

“Fat is Phat!”
Reviewed November 18, 2013 via mobile

Ok, here's my take. Had the brisket. The optional fatty portion is the way to go. My friends who got the lean were underwhelmed by the dryness. The fatty was tender and juicy. Beware of the crusted pieces and ends though. They are very salty and smoky. Stick to the whiter middle pieces. I loved the sauce, but it's a personal preference thing and thankfully the sauce is on the side. Mac n cheese got better towards the bottom of the bowl. Hush puppies were a tad different than I'm used to, but grew on me as they are more like corn bread nuggets. The decor and atmosphere is cool and overall I liked it.
