We took our dog on this trip so we needed somewhere we could eat outside and the RR BBQ fit our needs. It was a beautiful day for us to enjoy our lunch. The young wait staff was pleasant and we received our food quickly. The ribs were lean. The serving of chicken was very generous.

We ate lunch here with a group of adults and children. The service was quick and the staff friendly. The restaurant was very clean and a good environment for families. Prices were comparable to other BBQ. I am a self admitted BBQ snob, therefore I set the bar high for brisket. I had a brisket plate with beans and potato... More

Really enjoyed the sliced beef sandwich and fries,I was surprised that the meat was served on plain white bread, would have appreciated a toasted bun, also was surprised that the sauce was not that good, not a sweet sauce but seemed to be a vinegar based sauce, had to mix it with Catsup to make it palatable, if I ever...

The staff was very helpful when we had to order for a large group. Recommended certain foods to feed a big group! Everyone loved the chopped beef sandwiches.

OK, it is not Lockhart BBQ, but how many are? I had a really moist, flavorful LG brisket sandwich. The onion rings were really good. This was my 8th or 9th visit and the quality is consistent, as is the friendly service. Railroad is worthy of a visit.

The positive... the staff was friendly and prompt and the place is nice in appearance and clean. The food... I wanted to like it, but just couldn't. Everything tasted pre-packaged and right out of the microwave. Tried the brisket and smoked turkey on a baked potato. Neither was good, and unfortunately, the potato was cold.

Went in to try some local brisket but this turned out to be a disappointment. Brisket lacking a good smoke flavor despite red smoke ring half inch inside cuts. In my opinion the turkey packed in much more flavor. BBQ sauce is good but it would be nice if there were more options such as a vinegar or sweeter sauce.... More
