great food, great service, great atmosphere. It was packed the night we were there. This is not what I consider bar food. Average prices for a restaurant

We are the luckiest people. Got a parking place at the front door, and were seated at the last open table, had the best waiter, and best food. You know you are in a good place when they treat you nice, and feed you well. It sure helps that Two Hearted is the IPA at the top of the draught... More

It seems almost every trip to FW has to include a stop at Rack and Helen's. The food is always good, the atmosphere is casual and friendly, and the service is always with a smile. This isn't fine dining or anything out of the ordinary- except the tots which are out of this world good and maybe the stuffed mushrooms... More

Excellent food!! I had very good barbecued ribs. Their sauces and selections were outstanding! My husband had a pork and pickle sandwich that was fabulously delicious! We also had a delicious appetizer if homemade potato chips. Service was very good. Interior was clean and above average. Would definitely choose to eat here again without hesitation!

My wife and I decided to try this place on a recommendation from a friend. We drove an hour to get there and it was worth it. They have a great menu and everything looked great. Nice beer selection and friendly wait staff. Food came out fast and it was prepared well. The server gave us great tips on what... More

Our waitress was hopping and so very on top of things. she was doing everything including bussing tables and keeping the hostesses up to date as to what tables were available. the food was great. I had rib tips and... More

Second time here and still amazed by this staff!! I have never seen such a well oiled machine!! All foods that we have had, have been awesome!! And the speed at which you get your food even with standing room only is unbelievable. Kudos to everyone who works at Rack and Helens!!

Had a business lunch here July 8th, 2016. Was impressed with the food, atmosphere, and service. I would recommend them to anyone looking for a bar that does not serve crappy bar food. This is real delicious food

We have stopped here multiple times traveling to and from Ft. Wayne. We are to the point we don't even ask each other where to stop for lunch, we hit Racks on the way out of town and everyone is happy. Food is great, drinks are great and the help is great. It's always clean and someone to chat with.... More
