"By far some of the best chopped beef you will ever eat."
"I did not care for the potato salad but then again I make a mean one myself."

5 Stars for the bbq. 3 for the lackluster potato salad. The price of stuffed jalapenos was a little high, but I don't need a whole basket of them.. If I could get a small order, I would, but it's not offered. I just buy the sandwich and drink. The sliced brisket is consistently awesome!

The ribs were amazing! Fall off the bone tender. Very meaty. Awesome flavor. All the sides were good too!

I had sliced beef. It looked juicy, but had not taste. I asked my wife to check. I think they boiled it. She liked her meal.

I only had brisket & ribs. They were tender, had full meaty & smokey flavor. Had no sides, but with meat this good, I don't need sides.
Response from the owner - 7 months ago
Meat so good, you don't need sides? That's the best compliment I've ever heard! I'm glad our brisket and ribs hit the spot. Thank you so much for the great review. Hope to see you again soon, Diane! Warm regards, Gilbert, Manager

We ordered takeout from here today. After they took forever in the take out line this still messed up trying to pay for our orders. Then they forgot half my order and when I called to tell them they placed me on hold and would never answer again. Will never ever return very poor customer service.
Response from the owner - a month ago
I can definitely understand why this would leave you frustrated, Sherry, and I'm sorry you had so many issues with your takeout order. Despite the impression we left you with, that's really out of character for us, so please know I'll be checking back with the team to chat about it. I really do hope you'll give us the chance to prove how far from the norm this is. - Gilbert, Manager

I live in Boston, and one thing that I really like about Boston is that we do have some good barbecue joints, which is not always a certainty in New England cities. However, you'll never find amazing barbecue in Boston unless you know someone with a backyard smoker. Visiting Oklahoma City and Austin, I needed a place to stop for lunch on the long drive between the two, and Railhead had very good reviews online. I'll say that every one of those good reviews is understated. Stepping inside, the wood smoke smells heavenly. Service was quick and professional, and I ordered a chopped beef sandwich because everyone in the line ahead of me had ordered one, which I find is generally a decent recommendation if you can't decide. It simply melted when I took a bite. I nearly cried, it was so good. Perfect consistency, excellent flavour (not too sweet, not too salty), and it didn't need any barbecue sauce. That being said, the sauce served was delicious, and I did find myself dipping the sandwich every third bite or so. Railhead is going onto my map, and I'll definitely be back any and every time I'm near Ft. Worth.

Food is good and service is fast. Everything is done and cooked already so if you don't have to much time to eat is a good place to go. The ribs were good I've tasted better ones but for the price I think is pretty good, sausage, Cole slaw, beans and potatoes salad taste homemade. But my food. Was cold when I eat it.
Response from the owner - a year ago
Thanks for the feedback, Janet. I'm very surprised to hear that your food was cold. This is certainly very rare for us. Next time you come in I know you're going to have a delicious plate of hot, delicious BBQ. Can you elaborate a little further on what you didn't love about our ribs. This is one of our most popular menu items so I'd be curious to hear more feedback to this point. Otherwise, I look forward to seeing you again. I know we can come through with a 5 star meal for you. Take care — Gilbert, Manager
