The food and service were spot on! I am from the Southern US and know great BBQ, and Lancaster Smokehouse has it! Our server was attentive, the meat was juicy and flavorful with just the right amount of smoke! The sides dishes would make any southern grandmother proud! I definitely did not expect this in Canada, but I am glad... More

I have probably been to the Smokehouse 5 or 6 times over the years. While not a raving fan, I will say that it is a good ole down to earth family restaurant that gives what it promises. Smells great, and looks very rustic and casual. There was live music on most occasions that I have visited. Yesterday's visit was... More

I have been to the Lancaster Smokehouse a number of times after originally patronizing the Hogtails location. The 3 meat platter that includes 2 sides is the best bang for your buck. Although the Po'boy sandwiches are good too. The 3 meats to chose from include beef brisket, wings, pulled pork and ribs. Perhaps the most underated meat choice is... More

Real BBQ. Great value and very good atmosphere. Get there early near peak times or parking can be a challenge not to mention the wait. It will be well worth it. The platters are fantastic. Everything on the menu is very good.

The wings are massive. Great crunch to the outside not too much breading like other places. Sauce was delicious. I usually got hot and it was so flavorful. Some of the wings had small feathers on them still which I don't think is very appetizing but didn't mind picking off. The Mac and cheese is amazing. Recommend wing night on... More

The Lancaster Smokehouse is by far the best Texas BBQ in southern Ontario. The food is fantastic especially when ordering the multi-meat platters with your choice of sides. Ask for a table in Steves's corner and you will love the excellent service. By far one of the best restaurants in K W and the price is a great deal for... More

I can't say enough about the Lanc Smoke House. We have enjoyed take out a number of times before but thought we would unwind and enjoy the music one Saturday. The food was as expected... magnificent! The entire mood was fun with reasonably priced beer, good service and fine performers. Don't go- I don't want to have trouble with getting... More

Very nice staff and excellent service. For lunchtime service going a bit early can help in getting your food faster. Dinner service is always good and the music can definitely add to the atmosphere. For weekend service you could wait a little for the food, but as long as you are in good company it does not really matter!!

Had a 3 meat platter with pulled pork, ribs, and brisket. This came with coleslaw and cornbread. I was pretty full and got some to take home. I will be going back for more. Price was pretty reasonable.
