I had a fantastic brisket sandwich, my friends had pulled pork sandwiches and they were raving too. Everything other customers ordered looked great, they have craft beers and live music. I am not in Kitchener often but I will come back here whenever I am.

Wednesday nite blues singer was great. Good meals, but veggies are always undercooked. Go for beer, they only have Pelee Island wines. Fun place.

For some the title of this review my seem like an oxymoron - how can you have great southern barbecue in the north? In my experience you usually can't - most northern barbecue joints are simply pretenders, but every once in a while you get an exception and Lancaster Smokehouse is definitely one. A great smoke house has their barbecue... More

Dropped in for lunch with a friend. Got the 1/2 rack of ribs, onion rings and coleslaw. Ended up taking more than half the ribs home. They were meaty and very tasty. The onion rings were real. They were made there,large and crispy. The coleslaw serving was good and very generous. The waitress was just excellent and quite helpful

When they opened up they were amazing the quality was there the service was spot on. Earlier this summer we went an will NOT return. Ordered their 3 meat platter. The chicken was raw in the middle, the brisket was fatty and rubbery and the ribs were the worst ribs I ever had as they had no meat and boring... More

About 12 of us had a reservation. Fit us into a nice quiet room with just a few other tables. Food was great with a good selection for everyone. Service was ok but the server was very nice. They had run out of the dish that most of us had been told to try :( but still was enjoyable.

Upon arrival, we were greeted very warmly by the hostess and within 3 minutes we were seated. I had the Cajun Jambalya and I must say that it was one of the best Jambalya I ever had. No fancy decor, but great service and great food! I would go back in a hearbeat!

First visit was a good one. We had ribs and pulled pork. You won't be disappointed. Don't expect it to be fancy but the food is good and so is the service.
