“Dynamite BBQ”
Reviewed March 15, 2014 via mobile

I expected good Carolina style pork but was blown away by the flavor and quality of the brisket. The quality of the food was excellent with both entrees and sides being topnotch. Service was a bit inconsistent but very acceptable. I will be returning soon!

“Carolina Pulled Pork Was Superb”
Reviewed March 9, 2014

Had the Carolina pulled pork plate, delicious. Some of the best, or the best smoked pork I've ever had. Had the creamed corn as a side. It was fabulous. Came with hushpuppies and pickled onions which were both also delicious. Was in town on business, great atmosphere. Nice selection of local brews on tap.

“Husband's favorite”
Reviewed March 6, 2014

I'm not a big meat eater so I've defined bbq as "not meat" so that I can eat it whenever I have a chance! Midwood is terrific. We usually get a big combo plate that allows us to share ribs, pulled pork, bbq chicken and sometimes sausage or brisket. My one complaint, and the reason I didn't give this 5 stars is that they used to offer a grilled vegetable plate- pig pieces of grilled peppers, onions and other vegetables. It allowed me to have a meal of fabulous vegetables while using some of the meat my husband ordered as garnish! Still, a good place; the service is good and friendly, the portions are good, the value is good. It's always a winner--we've never had a bad meal here. Oh, they provide a choice (you get them all) of different bbq sauces; I prefer NC vinegar based, some like the sweet Miss. style and then there's mustard style (my least favorite). Something for any bbq preference.

“tried a cuban at a bbq restaurant...it was good”
Reviewed March 4, 2014

I broke a rule and ate a Cuban in a place that you would not normally choose to eat one, but it was good. Made with bbq so it made it non-traditional but tasty. Sides were good and would go back to try the bbq.
