We are thrilled that the Rail continues its northward expansion because the closer those burgers get to Cleveland, the better. Don't let the mall locations fool you: The Rail serves up some serious chow. Its namesake burger is a half-pound of grain-fed goodness, grilled over an open flame, something none of those other trendy chains are doing. Stockyard-chic, the restaurants feature gleaming white subway tiles that conjure up images of the neighborhood butcher shop.
