People heap all kinds of Praise on the Railhead ... but I preferred another place.. here's why, not taking anything away from Railhead but it certainly was more casual, Chow Hall style Texas BBQ where you wait in a line to order then find a table, perhaps fight or wait for a table, the sides weren't as good as other places and the presentation was better elsewhere... Valuewise Railhead was a buck or 2 less than some other BBQ's.

Based on the number of people there, Railhead Smokehouse is well liked in the area and a good meal, good value overall. The food was a solid Texas Style smoked Ribs/Brisket, etc, so I'm not complaining at all, just trying to compare different BBQ Joints in the area.

There are a lot of good barbeque places in Fort Worth, but this is my favorite. Good barbeque at a good price with a relaxed atmosphere. I would recommend that you come here for barbeque in Fort Worth.

This is a Fort Worth institution. Casual, inexpensive, with great BBQ. I recommend the ribs but the beef BBQ is great also. Good place for lunch if you are in the area.

They have the best ribs I've ever had and I've lived in the DFW area and the Kansas City area known for it's BBQ - nothing compares to these ribs. They are fabulous, fall off the bone delicious. The frieds with grilled onions are a must have as well. The service is always great. You really can't go wrong with this place!!!

The line was long; however, there was a reason -- it was a very good value. The french fries and onion rings were outstanding, the barbecue was tender, moist, and smoky (what else could we want???) The service was fast and efficient. The outdoor seating was great.
