Stopped in on my way back home. Very pleasantly surprised! Great staff, waitresses and grill staff. Hand crafted burgers. Very reasonable prices. Tried to get in once on a weekend night but it was packed and understandably so. Prototypical American comfort food!

Tailgate always has great food at a great price. We go to Tailgate frequently. One hint always go down on fry size. They serve a lot of fries. You will never leave hungry.

We were there just before dinner hour. Easy parking and seating. A little loud. Their burgers were tasty and well cooked. The fries were nothing special. Seemed like standard frozen fries. The grilled chicken salad had nicely cooked chicken but was only iceburg lettuce, with tomatoes, cucumber, too much shredded cheese and croutons. They have beer in bottles. Everything is... More

A local, hometown gem! The best burger you'll find anywhere! The hamburger is fresh, not frizen and the shoestring french fries are hot and fresh, and the size is HUGE! The Small order of fries is more than enough for two people. The Large is enough for a Family! The Tailgate is always clean and everyone is friendly and service... More

I eat here for lunch during the work week. Great burgers, more fries than a human should eat at one sitting and friendly, quick service. Highly recommended!

Hit-or-miss performance. One day, all is well, next day a burger is under-cooked or somebody in a small party of 6 or 7 doesn't even receive their food. Last time I was there, the entry door was so grimy I didn't even touch it and went somewhere else.

The food is always fresh and fast with friendly service. The fries come in a ridiculous mound that I LOVE!
