Barclay Downs is one of the most desirable and thus, difficult neighborhoods to move into in Charlotte. With that in mind, let's see how it stacks up against another prestigious Southpark community: Foxcroft

Need to get your North Carolina BBQ fix?
Look no farther than Midwood Smokehouse, located in, you guessed it, Plaza Midwood! It doesn't look like much from the street, sitting next to a furniture store & across from Bistro La Bon (brunch!), but Midwood Smokehouse is one of Charlotte's best BBQ spots. The BBQ is the star here but there's a lot to like around the edges as well.
Layout-wise there's a bar with decent drink specials (half price local drafts on...Continue Reading!
