Excellent restaurant. My steak was perfect with sweet potato tots. Wow. It was clean and the service was excellent.

We eat at Tailgators at least once per month. The service is consistently good along with the food. They offer a superior dining experience as opposed to the family restaurant. You aren't going to "write home" about your meal, but you will leave with a smile on your face.

Nice sports bar and grill. The menu was very unique with a lot of unusual choices, not the usual burgers and fries.

While traveling home from the Black Hills, I stopped at the Holiday Inn in Brandon, SD. Looking to eat dinner, I asked for recommendations at the front desk. I was advised that Tailgators was right next door, so I gave it a try. I narrowed my choices to the tacos, the cashew chicken stir fry, and the Reuben sandwich. My... More

Situated next door to the Quality Inn, it is quite convenient. Usual sports bar food, burgers, fries sandwiches. Not haute cuisine, but reasonably priced laid back bar food not floating on excess grease.

We ate here twice in 7 days, very good food! Fast and friendly service. I had salmon once and a beef quesadilla last, both very good. It's a big place, noisy but tolerable.

After a long day on the road we checked into the Holiday Inn and were happy to see Tailgator's right next door. There is a choice of sitting on the family restaurant or the sports bar. My husband is a huge sports fan so we chose that side. TV's everywhere and we had a choice of car racing, little league... More

This is located within walking distance of Holiday Inn. We (parents) went there on a Friday night before the wedding. Nice bar menu. Food was actually above average. Nice big screens and lots of draft beer choices. I went back by myself the next day for lunch and had fish tacos and they were actually good. Who would of thought... More

Huge burgers and great steaks. The staff was awesome, even on a busy night. Everything was clean but none of the paper towel dispensers worked in the restroom. That problem was not resolved in the three days I was there. Overall, it is worth the stop.

We had a dozen diners in our group. The tenderloin tips, Tailgate burgers, chicken Alfredo, Cobb salad were all good, served up by friendly efficient staff at a reasonable price. What more can you ask for in a Roadtrip stopover like Brandon, SD.
