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.

Brisket wasn't very smokey, pulled pork a little... More

Visited (not for the jfirst time) with a large group of friends to enjoy some amazing BBQ.. A couple of big platters for the table and helpful service gave us a great evening together. (Live music on Friday and Saturday as well!)

Tonight the family and I headed to Lancaster Smokehouse and were we ever happy that we did. We live about 45 minutes from the place so we were hoping it was good and I am happy to report that it was. Friendly greeting the minute you walk through the door. We arrived before the dinner rush so we were lucky... More

Food was amazing! Ribs, pulled pork, fries, cornbread, & onion rings the size of your head were to die for! Friendly service, thanks Steve! Went back a second time before flying back to Calgary. You gotta eat here!
