This award-winning barbecue is known for serving some of the best barbecues in all of the Lone Star state. From succulent fall-off-the-bone ribs to savory finger-licking-good beef brisket, Railhead Smokehouse sure knows how to cook its meats to perfection. Patrons can choose to order ahead and stop off at the drive-thru for pick up or head inside and sit down with a cold draft beer for a hearty meal. The restaurant is so popular in fact, that they ship nationwide, so if you can't make it to Texas you can have Texas come to you.
One of the city's most popular barbecue joints actually began as a beer hall in 1958. The original owner, Angelo George, added the meat as a sideline to encourage customers to drink more. Now the former beer hall has been named one of the best places for barbeque by the Zagat Weekly and Texas Monthly. The walls are graced with typically Texan taxidermy (moose, buffalo and deer). Entrees include pork ribs, sausage, brisket, ham and chicken, all of which come with potato salad, cole slaw and beans on the side. Wash it all down with a huge frosty mug of one of the many beers on tap.
