Wonderful news for BBQ lovers traveling to or from Charlotte. Axios Charlotte is reporting that Midwood Smokehouse will be opening a new location at the Charlotte Douglas International Airport. The local BBQ chain will take over the spot previously held by the Stock Car Cafe which is in Concourse B. Renderings of the space show that there will be a grab-and-go section as well as sit-down dining. While airports typically have an abundance of chain restaurants, it’s fun to experience the local offerings of a city on your layover. Charlotte Douglas also features Charlotte-based bars and restaurants like Captain Jacks-an OMB spinoff, Rhino Market, The Broken Spoke, Wicked Weed Brewing, and Whisky River.
Midwood Smokehouse should be open and serving up BBQ at Charlotte Douglas International Airport sometime in 2023. As with any airport restaurant the menu will be limited compared to stand-alone locations. You can still expect that freshly smoked meat, however! I love that it is in Concourse B as well, as that’s where I tend to fly out (thanks American!). So I can’t wait to check this out sometime next sure. I’m a get to the airport 2 hours early and relax kinda gal so having good food and drink options is a must.
And on a side note, the airport entrance is barely recognizable due to the fast-moving construction. I flew two weeks ago and the changes made just since June were drastic. Our airport is looking good y’all. I can’t wait to see the finished project.
