After a two-year hiatus, Railtown Cafe’s Saturday Tailgate Barbecues are back! This year, the perennially sold-out al-fresco barbecues will be taking place at the original Railtown Cafe location (397 Railway Street) on August 18 and 25 from 4 to 9 p.m.
This summer you’ve probably been to endless backyard barbecues and managed to choked down a couple scorched wings followed by a ‘Sahara Desert’ inspired dust burger. Now is your chance to hit up a grill session done right, offered up by the culinary talent at Railtown Cafe.
Railtown Chefs and Co-Owners Dan Olson and Tyler Day will fire up their custom-built, 12-foot smoker/barbecue barrel to heap plates high with mouthwatering, slow-smoked brisket and pork shoulder and beer-brined chicken and brats, as well as a choice of made-from-scratch sides.
The bar will feature a selection of local craft beers on tap, house-made Sangria and Lynchburg Lemonade as well as wines available by the glass and bottle. Happy Hour specials featured from 4 to 6 p.m. on both days.
