                      Atmosphere and decor great for kids, and few nascar addicts would like. Food...well...the hush puppies are ok, but that is it. This is not a burger, this is not BBQ. Service is mediocre.

                      Good place to take family and young kids for some great BBQ. Large menu including kids menu. Quick friendly service. Nice nascar atmosphere with small arcade for the kids.

                      I gave it another try the other night after years of not eating there. I should have stayed away!! The only redeeming food is the hush puppies. It was very crowded and we waited forever for a seat and forever to see our waitress. I was not impressed with the food or the service.

                      If you are a race fan, then Lancaster's is the place for you! Their racing decor, friendly service, great prices, and delicious food makes it a great local restaurant. It is also extremely family friendly. Ask to eat in the bus- your kids will LOVE it!

                      First visit was outstanding. Service was very satisfying. Food was was delicious and I can't wait to go back. My son attends NTI and I look forward to taking him. To the person from California, remember keep an open mind. I to do not like vinegar in my barbeque, but they have more than 1 type of barbeque.

                      To the guy from California. Different styles of BBQ are made because we are all different. You like food your way and others like it their way. Lancaster's has been in business for 20 years and a lot of people like it, that should tell you something. I would never rate a western BBQ restuarant cause that is not the style I care for.

                      What's the deal with NC BBQ lore. Just moved here from San Diego, and people I am not impressed. Vinegar is for pickles not pork; bbq should be pulled not ground up like mince meat jerkey chew you can buy for $.99 at the local gas station. Ever hear of Beef Brisket? Ever hear of sliced pork? Can i have some choices in sauces, sweet, spicy, mustard? In your words, "give a fellar some options". The best BBQ I have eaten is at Dinosaur's in Syracuse NY, and (I forget the name) in St. Louis. They do it up right. Enough with the vinegar, long live the rub and the tomato!

                      We visit Lancaster's at least 3-4 times a month. One thing that makes us return is that we always know what we are going to get. The food and service is always great. We always are made to feel welcome not only by the host and wait staff but by the management as well. I give this a 10 and will continue to frequent this establishment as long as they continue to serve up great "southern hospitality".

                      We have visited many times and it seems that the service gets worse each time. This past Saturday evening we visited and we had to constantly remind our waitress to refill our drinks which she never returned to us to do, Finally I just asked her to bring the check and a go-box at the same time so we could just leave but even that took forever. It's a shame that the food is pretty good but the service stinks.

                      The food and atmosphere at Lancaster's is awesome. Now this little Kentucky girl perfers Western Kentucky BBQ but Lancaster's chicken and hush puppies certainly make me smile.

                      This place has really decent food but my most recent experience included the rudest waitress I've ever had to deal with in a restaurant. We asked to be seated in non-smoking but were seated in smoking. When we realized this, we told our waitress we didn't want to sit near smoke. She replied "Oh well, we usually don't have that many smokers." and walked off. Once everyone in our surrounding booths lit up, we asked our waitress again to allow us move because the smoke bothered us. She just said "I'm sorry" and walked off again. We finally told her we were moving and she became really rude. Once we had gotten seated in the non-smoking section, she came over to our table and stated "Just for your future reference, we don't ask during lunch service for smoking preference." A member of my party told her quietly that it was ok because we wouldn't be coming back. The waitress then yelled at us that we didn't have any right to treat her this way and she didn't appreciate it. We asked this girl at least twice to move us and she wouldn't it. That's not service to me. I attempted to complain to the manager but she also didn't seem to care at all at the way we had been treated. We (my party and me) are never going to eat there again. The food is good but not THAT good to be worth such a fiasco. If any member of my party (all 3 of us) had been rude at any point, I wouldn't write this, but we were calm the entire time and just wanted to be away from all the smoke. I recommend Sonny's for BBQ and Teddy's for other great cuisines in the Mooresville area.

The ribs absolutely melt in your mouth and the wings are awesome too. Don't go to the race now, our driver retired. I miss Lancaster's as much as the racing. Definitely will make a trip from time to time for Lancaster's. A must if you are in the area!

                      I have family in Virginia and on my way two years ago we had to stop for gas in Mooresville NC on I 77. We asked the gas station attendent for a good bar b que place and he recomended Lancasters. Well, this is the best bbq I have had bar none. We have 2 boys and they went nuts on the game room and it kept them busy while we finished our meal. Try the ribs they will melt in your mouth. The bbq plate was killer also. I wish there was a bbq place in atlanta that could come close to this place.

                      Message from Lancaster's BBQ

                      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.
