Summer Tailgate Barbecues are Back

Railtown's Saturday Tailgate Barbecues return August 18 and 25


After a two-year hiatus, we’re bringing our perennially sold-out Saturday Tailgate Barbecues back to our original Railtown Cafe location (397 Railway Street) on August 18 and 25 from 4 to 9 p.m.

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.

We’ll also be featuring rotating selection of local craft beers on tap, house-made Sangria and Lynchburg Lemonade, as well as wines available by the glass and bottle and Happy Hour specials featured from 4 to 6 p.m. on both days.
