The Rail is a restaurant that takes “buy local” to a whole new level. Not only do they use locally sourced beef, but even much of their bar is stocked with locally sourced beverages. From local brewers like Fat Head’s to Buckeye Vodka which is also brewed in Ohio Having been recommended by a couple of friends, I had to try it out. Not because of the local focus, but because I was told they had good burgers!
Of their many options I chose the “Local Yokel”, and not just out of respect for the witty play on words. Boasting Ohio thic-cut bacon, fried local egg and Swiss cheese I honestly didn’t even read any further down the menu.
It was a good burger on a fresh bun with a healthy helping of excellent bacon. The egg was over easy as requested and the burger is served with a stick through it which prevents embarrassing yoke explosions on the first bite. This last point may not be intentional, but it’s still the little things that count.
