I happened to stop in on my way to Charlotte, NC and had the best burger of my life! The garlic thyme aioli was outstanding on their perfectly cooked burger. It was so great, I timed my trip home so I could eat there again! Midwood please come to Orlando, FL!

Hubby, I, and our 4 kids stopped by on a Sat night about 5:30, they were already packed with a waiting list, after about a 30 minute wait we were seated. Ordered a queso dip with pulled pork and chips for an appetizer, so good! We wanted to go "family style" and ordered a "well-fed" and "pig-out" platters, it's 4... More

The best BBQ place around! Never have had anything better. There is no better beef brisket around. (The fatty is the best) and the Dry rub ribs are unbelievable! The seasoning is awesome and with no BBQ sauce, you just get that great smoked flavor. So tender the meat practically falls off the bone before it even gets to your... More

We are from Nashville, TN, and we came to Charlotte for a weekend getaway. This restaurant has absolutely delicious food. But, more importantly, the hospitality that Eric A shows to guests is fantastic. He took a personal interest in us and made us feel as if we were at his home. It's rare to find this level of hospitality and... More

The food was amazing!!! The Brisket was the bomb - highly recommend. I would get just the lean one as it is was better than the "fatty" option. The baked beans were the best I have ever eaten. So going back here when I come to Charlotte again!!!

This is our GO TO restaurant for BBQ that is quintessential Charlotte. The Mac & Cheese is perfect so too is the banana pudding. We take all our out of town guests there and no one is ever disappointed with the quality of food or service.

This restaurant makes a great midweek dinner out. We usually sit at the bar and eat, but also will sit at a table. The service is always good, friendly staff and food is delivered quickly and everythibg on the menu we have tried is good. It may not be considered the most authentic barbeque in NC, but the pork is... More

My friend took me there for lunch when I visited him just after Christmas. Though it was jammed packed because of The Belk Bowl, we didn't have to wait long. I ordered the pulled pork w/a side of BBQ slaw, sweet potato fries and hush puppies. OMG! The meal was so freaking good. And there was so much that I... More

6. I appreciate your positive feedback about our restaurant. Our portion sizes are pretty big, but you can't go wrong with left overs! If you're traveling to our area again, don't hesitate to stop on by. Take care! More
