This place is a little out of the way and on the outside doesn't look like much. It is promoted for the BBQ, but the Chicken is a show stopper! The only way you can order is a whole chicken, you will be glad for leftovers. I have always loved Eischen's chicken, but now this place is my new favorite!

Never the same employees must have a huge turnover. Small portions and high prices. Quality suffers from different employees all the time. Place is not real clean !

The fried chicken is great, service is very slow, inside restaurant is super dirty and run down. My son was counting dead bugs in the window as we ate. Okra is good if it's fresh. Do you yourself a favor and call in your order to go!

We eat here a couple times of month to be conservative. Just like any restaurant things can be hit or miss. They rarely miss though. The staff is always friendly and service is great. I love their drive through window for when we want to get some REAL FOOD to go.

We selected this restaurant for a monthly group get together, we made sure to reserve it a couple weeks in advance because there was going to be about 23 of us there. My wife and I split an order of their popular fried chicken, the menu said allow 20 minutes because it is cooked to order, I believe there were... More

I had heard about Railhead BBQ but had never taken the time to find it. Don't expect to find a fine dining establishment on Douglas Blvd. This restaurant is a hometown place, down to the red and white checked table clothes. With your order you get plastic utensils and paper plates and Styrofoam cups. I don't mind that IF the... More

We ate at Railhead again this week and enjoyed it as much as I always do. I've eaten at this little restaurant for years and am glad that we have it. Ron and his staff are extremely friendly and personable. It's a comfortable, friendly little place that competes well in Guthrie against other established restaurants. They also have a convenient...

Railhead started out with a bang. The fried chicken was excellent, the BBQ was great, and service prompt. In the last two years, however, the food and service has gone downhill. Food no longer excellent and great, but so-so. Service has really declined also. I think the owner should take more interest in the place.

Drove up one weeknight from OKC and I should have caught the first negative sign - not a single car in the lot and no one inside. Ordered the three meat combo - brisket, ribs & hot links with beans and okra. Best part of the meal was the Texas toast. The whole thing tasted like it just came out... More
