Experience Southern BBQ in Waterloo Region!
The Lancaster Smokehouse‘s mission is simple:
Keep it local, keep it fresh and homemade.
The Lancaster Smokehouse is committed to nurturing relationships with other family run businesses across Ontario. They are Feast on Certified by the Ontario Culinary Tourism Alliance, sourcing fresh vegetables from local growers, premium meats from Ontario farms, and even their ice cream from a Kitchener Waterloo gelateria. The restaurant also offers a well-rounded selection of Ontario Craft Beers on tap, and a couple Ontario VQA wines.
To deliver the most authentic Southern experience Ontario has to offer, the Lancaster Smokehouse chooses to source some of their ingredients directly from family run suppliers across the Southern United States. The Corrigan family has connected with these authentic suppliers through their extensive travels, and take pride in having visited many of them personally.
When it comes to their meat, they mean business. All meat is smoked in over 100% whole log hickory hardwood, seasoned with their special blends of rubs and sauced to perfection upon serving. They house the largest restaurant smoker in Canada, holding a whopping 1400 lbs of BBQ bliss! All their BBQ sauces, rubs, and wood chips are available for retail in the restaurant.
The Lancaster Smokehouse offers their entire menu for take-out, but time slots for pick-up are limited. It’s best if you call well in advance to ensure your takeout can be ordered at the desired time.
Also, you can cater your next event with the Lancaster Smokehouse. Whether you desire full service off-site catering, the Food Truck experience, or want to throw a bash in the Lanc Loft (seated capacity – 100 people), they can cater your events – big and small, including weddings!
Each week brings live blues music and special events to the restaurant. Check their website for a list of what’s coming up.
Reservations are accepted from Monday-Thursday during business hours, and Friday and Saturday from 11:30 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. Give them a call to reserve a spot!
