Buy Local.

Eat Urban.

A family-owned restaurant that sources fruits and veggies from neighboring farms and enhances that freshness by cooking over an open flame on The Big Green Egg.

A Little About Us

Urban Cookhouse was inspired by family. From PawPaw Snyder who taught our founder how to carefully smoke meats over hickory wood and charcoal and grow farm fresh vegetables to the Tomaino Family that came to America to start a new life, family is the “why” behind Urban Cookhouse. Sherry Snyder, our founder’s mother, was most at home in the kitchen modeling made-from-scratch cooking to her sons. The family farms that provide the fresh ingredients are another vital piece of our family tree that make Urban Cookhouse feel like home to our customers within the communities we serve.
