Midwood Smokehouse

1401 Central Avenue Charlotte, NC 28205
(704) 295-4227
We honestly can say that the food is as good as it gets at this fine establishment. The barbeque is absolutely unbelieveable in every way. The atmosphere is fun and at the same time alive with excitement because of all of the activity. If you want to get the full experience, we suggest starting with and appetizer and that appetizer needs to be anything you can dip into hogapeno dip. For an entree, if you just close your eyes, take your finger and let it fall on a menu item, you are going to be as happy as thinking about your decision too hard. And of course dessert is a must and if you don't sample the banana pudding, you will truly be missing out.
