Best barbecue in Fort Worth Texas

“Life’s too short to live in Dallas,” is the motto at Railhead. It’s on the walls and the staff shirts and makes Dallasites squirm a bit. With a devoted local following and famous t-shirts, Railhead Smokehouse offers a spectacular menu of heaping plates of ribs, sliced beef, fries, and cheddar peppers. Weekday specials, beer, and margaritas are also available.
