Fast average lunch

Grabbed a couple of sandwiches for lunch on a business day. Sandwiches were pretty good but for me the sauce is a bit too sweet. I know a lot of people who love their food so I'm sure it's just a personal taste. Haven't been back but would not be opposed to going again.

This is a cafeteria style restaurant with prices accordingly (very reasonable), and since we were in a bit of a hurry, we simply had to stop here. The ribs fell off the bone, full of meat and very little fat, succulent and absolutely perfect with the sauce they provide. The sides are nothing special. Let's be honest: one comes here... More

I love Railhead! I eat lunch here at least once a month. Their beer mugs are the coldest in town, so your beer will frost over. Their BBQ brisket, pork ribs and jalapeño cheddar sausage is the best. The restaurant has that Texas feel to it. Try it out!

The brisket was sliced perfectly and very tender and juicy....just about the best that I have had...I had a fishbowl of ziegenbock beer, fries, and 1 lb of brisket for 12 bucks

Average flavor for Texas Barbecue. Friendly and courteous staff. Nice place for large and small parties alike.

This place doesn't always 's have pulled pork and in my book it's a crime for a Southern Barbecue joint not to have pulled pork. I think they are resting on their reputation because the sides are bland (beans and potato salad)and the other meats only average. Smokey's beats them hands down even though they are not in as good... More

I was given a whole brisket as a gift. It may be the best that I have ever had. I was a judge in the World BBQ contest in Memphis for three years, and a 50 year resident of Texas, and I don't much about anything else, but I know good BARBEQUE!

Stopped by on a Saturday afternoon I had ribs and the lady got the chopped beef plate. The ribs were great

I can't speak to the whole menu, but they have the best ribs that I have ever eaten. They have spoiled me big time.

We ate at the Railhead several years ago and I remember the food being very good. We ate there a couple of weeks ago (opening weekend of the Fort Worth Stock Show and Rodeo) and found the food somewhat disappointing. Maybe but it was the crowds, but the former quality was lacking. My wife had ribs and I had brisket.... More
