Though barbecue sauce can be used to power tractors or grease slip 'n' slides, it’s best for making beans sing and chickens dance. Start a party on the tongue's floor with today’s Groupon: for $8, you get $16 worth of Texas-style barbecue at Railroad Crossing BBQ.
The grill gurus at Railroad Crossing BBQ pack a menu with meat-focused eats, inviting guests to dine inside restored train cars. Perfect for restaurant-wide games of catch, baked potatoes stuff themselves with butter, sour cream, and cheese ($4.99) or your choice of protein ($7.99). Combinations of beef, links, pork tenderloin, ham, turkey, and chicken define Railroad Crossing BBQ's dinner platters, which are protected by moats of homemade sauce and feature names such as Brakeman (choice of one meat, $7.99), Conductor (ribs, $10.99), and Engineer (choice of three meats, $10.99). Both chicken-fried steak ($7.99) and fried-chicken tenderloins ($7.99) are served with two of the eatery's Side Tracks, such as coleslaw, pinto beans, or railroad ties—french fries designed to be strong enough to support the weight of a caboose.
