Fodor's Expert Review Midwood Smokehouse
Located in the funky Plaza Midwood neighborhood (and with satellite locations now in Ballantyne and Park Road Shopping Center), this barbecue joint carries a full range of sauces and meats and keeps its wood-fired smoker burning 24/7. This is no hole-in-the-wall joint but instead a fun and modern-looking place with something for just about every kind of barbecue lover. The beef brisket is excellent, especially with a half-lean, half-fatty plate. For a special treat, order the banana pudding; it's some of the best in the state.
