Comments Off on Railtown Cafe Brings Back Saturday Barbecues

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.

On the menu:

35-hour Texas-style Beef Brisket
Applewood-smoked Pork Shoulder
Beer-brined Maple Hill Farms Chicken
D’Original Sausage Haus Brats
Corn on the Cob
Jalapeño Cornbread
Plus, a choice of two side dishes:
Carolina Coleslaw
Creamy Potato Salad
Classic Caesar Salad
Farmers’ Market Field Greens
Tickets are available here for $29 per person ($19 vegetarian) plus tax, both online and onsite. All tickets purchased online in advance include a complimentary drink voucher (up to $6 value).
