The ribs & Cole slaw were Good. The BBQ Sauce a little Tangy. Potato Salad was Average. They have a Bar area, Dining area & Patio.The Onion Rings were good. Price very Reasonable. We will eat there again.

Delicious, falling off the bone ribs and hand cut French fries. Today we enjoyed ours outside in the shade.

As a native FW girl and BBQ LOVER I've tried most every BBQ joint in DFW. Railhead is hands down best in my book. The ribs are my favorite but I also love the chopped beef sandwich. The atmosphere is FW casual and the food...More

Lots of meat on my sandwich. So much that I needed a fork. Good sauce and fresh cut fries. Busy on a Friday night but still easy to get a table.
