Went there for a Saturday afternoon pick-up for a pound of lean sliced beef and a 1/2 pound of ribs. The sliced leaves something to be desired. What I expected and what was served was two different things. The ribs leave something to be desired and the condiments (jalapeno & banana peppers) was about it. Where pickles, onions & tomatoes...

We were told by a friend that this was a great place and he was right! The staff was helpful in telling us what this Ohio couple should buy! Pulled poem, brisket and ribs with combo plate was perfect! Pretty big crowd for 3:30 on a Monday! Will go back when we return to Fort Worth .

Went with friends while in town for business. I had the two meat combo platter with ribs and brisket, potato salad, bbq beans and coleslaw for only $11.50. Great taste and a better value! Didn't leave hungry that's for sure.

Best smoked turkey and baked potatoes. Chopped barbecue is great, too. The place is always busy. Beer is always super cold.

Great food! Sliced BBQ and Ribs are mouth watering and very tender. Sides are great! Nice cold beer atmosphere is great sometimes a little loud.

Great barbecue. The food was great. The ribs fell of the bone. The brisket was melt in your mouth. The sauce had a nice tang to it. If in the area it's a must try.

Big group decided on the Railhead. Busy but excellent service, if crowded you will wait but anything worthwhile takes time. Worth the wait for sure, ribs were perfect and brisket was melt in your mouth tender!

I went to Railhead with a friend while in Ft. Worth. The brisket and turkey were good as were all the sides (potato salad, beans and coleslaw) that came with the dinner. The atmosphere is casual and comfortable, and they have a bar if you're interested in an adult beverage.

I was with a group of 12 when visited on a Tuesday night and the place was packed! We pulled tables together and got in line to order. The brisket and French fries were outstanding. Everyone in our party was very pleased with their meals. Very generous servings and beer served in VERY ICY mugs!

Fantastic chopped beef sandwich with pickles and onions. $1.50 schooners of draft beer from 4-9 keeps the place packed. Food is fantastic.
