Need to get your North Carolina BBQ fix?

plaza midwoodLook 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 Monday) to the right as you walk in.  There are two main sections inside with a surprising amount of seating on the inside and a small patio area that’s heated in the winter if you’d prefer to eat outdoors.  Now on to the main course! All things BBQ dominate the menu with my personal favorites being either the pulled pork sandwiches, brisket or burnt ends.  While you can’t really go wrong with any of the menu items, the burnt ends (the burnt corners of the brisket) are particularly choice.  You also have to try the bacon wrapped jalapenos.  Cheesy goodness mixed in with jalapenos & bacon are the perfect side.

A great spot for lunch or a casual dinner, Midwood Smokehouse is my favorite BBQ location in midwoodCharlotte.  Macs in Southend might edge it out in terms of location & character but Midwood wins easily on the BBQ & service front.  Writing this post has me jonesing for BBQ again, see you at Midwood!
