Horrible food. $6.95 for a BLT with a green tomato and a couple of strips of bacon. The place is ghetto!
awesome food - manager is an idiot – I go there to watch football on sundays, awesome food good prices and 20 tv's. When you pull up to building there are big letters on there sign that read "WHAT YOUR FAVORIT NFL TEAM HERE" everytime that I go in there they already have there tv's set to the games that the manager once to watch per his fantasy team. Every week I see new people walk into the bar and ask if the bar would put on the game they would want to watch, everytime the manager tells them the tv's have been preset to these games, so the people leave. What kind of a fool would turn down business that will be sitting there for 3 hours watching there team play buying foot and drinks? If you have NFL ticket you can change the game that you are watching thats the glorious thing about the NFL ticket you can watch ANY game.
Other than the manager being one of the dumbest managers I have ever seen in a resturant. The food is really good great prices and everyone is super nice.
1 of the best – I stopped by one weekend with my fiance and I had the best burger I've ever had, and there drinks are decent also, the only problem was the service was a little slow but overall it's a real cool place to hang out and have fun, I'll be back there quite often with guests!
great food and good friends! – Tailgate has a great Neighborhood Feel. Its a great place to hang out, eat good food and meet interesting people. They have Karaoke on Tuesday and Saturday nights. 2 for 1's every day of the week, Mon-fri 3-6pm and 10p-12am and Saturday and Sundays 10pm-12am. They have TONS of tv's to watch all your favorite games. Saturdays they have The College Football ticket with Drink specials and food specials. Sundays they have the NFL ticket with Drink and Food specials. Great place to go for a good time!
Good food, questionable service – We usually go here after softball with a group of 6-12 people. We are able to get seated quickly and the menu offers something for everyone. However, the service has been somewhat lacking. I understand that large groups are a bit harder to accomodate and I completely understand if things go a bit slower. But the servers should still be friendly.. We ordered waffle fries instead of regular fries and she asked us if we wanted the seasoned sour cream and we said YES! When our meals came, they had regular fries and when we stated that we had ordered waffle fries with SC, she did not believe us. She went and checked the kitchen ticket and nodded her head no. We did get the waffle fries, with a side of rude behavior. Other than this and the waitresses almost always disappearing when it's time to pay, the food and plentiful TV's make this a great place to go after the game.
HUGE MENU – Almost too huge of a menu - to the point where you cant decide! It amazes me how fast the food comes out usually. Wings are good especially their new Jameson BBQ wings. Ive been here maybe 10 times and only had a less than perfect experience 2-3 times. Usually its waiting for more water or twice my card has been rung out to the wrong table. Lots of tv's and some games to play too. Lots of different people coming here too, large bar in the middle. Pretty good for a sports bar and def better than Apllebees or TGIFridays and other chains like that.
Best neighborhood bar – I love everything about this place, the food, drinks, and service are fantastic. Plenty of sports and great specials makes this place the only bar for myself and friends. The wings are great!!!!!! Keep up the great work Tailgate.
Terrible service – The service here is terrible. THe waitresses are usually rude and witchy. The manager/owner is totally rude to customers. He is lazy and bad mouths customers after they leave. He stands there staring at the clientelle but never does anything to help expedite or improve the service. The food is mediocre at best. I too have seen people smoking narcotics on the patio.
Do not go – This used to be my wife and I's home away from home, but the manager must hate our money. We were cut off for no reason what so ever and we will never be back. It's too bad too because I can walk there. Oh well. There are other bars right? People use narcotics on the smoking patio and the manager turns a blind eye.
Great "Neighborhood" Place... You can't beat the prices!!! May I suggest the Italian Fries? – This place is just up the street from me. They do a really good job with the sports bar atmosphere... the service is great and the prices are fantastic! Eat your Heart out Applebee's They have lot's of TV's, Trivia, and I would say probably the best Turkey Hogie I have ever had in my life! There is always parking and the late night happy hour has super cheap eats and drinks!
