Midwood Smokehouse

Record #:
Frank Scibelli opened his first restaurant in Charlotte, Mama Ricotta's, in 1992. When he couldn't find any Mexican food he liked, he opened Cantina 1511, and followed it up with a Tex-Mex--Paco's Tacos & Tequila. For hamburgers he opened Bad Daddy's Burger Bar. When he likes it and can't find it, he builds his own restaurant. Charlotte is not known for traditional barbecue--enter Scibelli and the Midwood Smokehouse. Markovich explains why this is a traditional barbecue place and yet very different.
