FT.Worth BBQ-Railhead vs. Angelo's

J.R. | Nov 20, 2008 06:16 AM

I live in Dallas and due to the absolute dirth of good cue in Dallas, I usually save it for when I get to Ft. Worth. I've been going to Angelo's for 15 or so years (2-3times/yr). Over the past couple of years, my Ft. Worth friends swear by the Railhead. So, over the the past year, I've been to the Railhead 4 times and had the opportunity to re-visit Angelo's yesterday. I usually order ribs and brisket at both. I've got to say, that I think Angelo's beef and ribs are far superior to the Rail head. The Railhead brisket seems to be over-smoked and bitter many times. Also, one other thing. Why is it that I have to eat canned "Ranchstyle Beans" at both places? I know the meat is the focus, but couldn't they do a little better? Anyone else have a take?
