This is the real deal BBQ. No short cuts from what I can see. The pulled pork is the star of the show but backup and co-stars of brisket and wings are not to be missed. Go hungry. My only wish is that they had...More

We stopped here on a whim after visiting the Raptor Sanctuary. We had the special the night we were there which included BBQ pork, wings, hush puppies and two sides for under $10. Not sure if that was a regular offering...or we just lucked out....More

Wanted something different than normal. I drive pass this place almost everyday for years and never be in. Well, my family decided to give it a try and it was an excellent decision. The ribs are awesome!

It had been a while since we had dined here in view of the many BBQ restaurants that have come into the area, but we used to come here a lot. Since our last visit, Lancaster's has changed the menu. That in and of itself...More

Really friendly staff, plenty of variety on menu, great food! There are sandwiches, dinner plates, salads, make-your-own combos, and so many sides. The ribs and eastern barbecue are outstanding. If you're a barbecue fan, you'll love it here!

Depending on traffic, about 20 minutes from downtown Charlotte and 20 to 25 minutes from Lake Norman .This also depends on traffic and from what location of Lake Norman.

From humble beginnings in a small former gas station, Lancaster's BBQ was born in Race City, USA (otherwise known as Mooresville, NC). The year was 1986 and our slow-smoked, real eastern NC BBQ and race memorabilia quickly became legendary. Owners Jeff and Terry Lancaster's philosophy of never compromising quality and always offering friendly service in a fun, relaxed environment definitely proved successful from the start. Lancaster's BBQ quickly developed a reputation for a family-fun atmosphere, professional service and melt-in-your-mouth BBQ. Our eastern NC style BBQ has fed countless families, sports legends and other famous patrons for nearly three decades.
