Midwood Smokehouse is headed to Raleigh.

The popular barbecue restaurant will serve up its burnt ends and bacon-wrapped jalapeños in a sixth location by early 2022 in Raleigh’s Smoky Hollow development.

  • It’s the local chain’s first location in the capital city and second outside of the Charlotte area.

Why it matters: Charlotte isn’t known for its barbecue, but it is known for Midwood Smokehouse. Presidents and presidential hopefuls have visited the restaurant. It’s featured in the New York Times’ 36 Hours in Charlotte guide. It’s been on our best barbecue list since our best barbecue list was born.

What to expect: The 4,125-square-foot restaurant will be located at 528 N. West St. It’ll include outdoor seating overlooking the pedestrian courtyard.

  • The menu will feature the same tour-de-barbecue we have here in Charlotte — a little Texas-style brisket, a little Eastern-style chopped pork, and all the sides.
