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.
In 2006, Lancaster’s branched out of Mooresville and added a second location down the road in Huntersville. Patrons there have also come to enjoy our favorite southern specials while feeling right at home. Our Mooresville location is also home to the Hawg Trawgh, Lancaster’s own friendly bar and covered patio for parties, connected to the main restaurant.
Now with two thriving locations and a successful catering business, Lancaster’s is still committed to delivering nothing but the best to each and every diner. Come give us a try!
