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!

Had a free lunch here as the result of a bet with a buddy who was silly enough to bet on the Cleveland Browns. Great place for burgers, etc. I had one with cheese and an enormous platter of French fries. Both were very good. There is an extensive menu of basic popular lunch choices. Waitresses were great.

I ate at tailgate a couple years ago and didn't have the best food, but this time was different! It was really good and they gave me a huge stack of fries!

Awesome pick! Great food, fast& friendly service. I had the Philly (minus the lettuce & tomatoes ) and a side of onion rings, which turned out to be a huge basket of rings. My husband got a bacon cheeseburger and fried pickles. We're talking 7 large crispy dill spears with ranch dressing on the side. Everything was great. Great music... More

Service was friendly and prompt. Hamburgers were hand patted with good flavor made to order. Fries were hot and plentiful. Good country music playing and very cold beer. Would definitely visit again if ever in this area.

We were s party of 2 & I had the bacon cheeseburger. My friend had the Philly cheesesteak. I thought my burger was okay, average. Her cheesesteak looked fabulous & she knows a good cheesesteak & said it was great. I'll definitely get that on my next visit. We shared the medium fries & couldn't finish them. I'll be back!

After a busy day of a family wedding 10 of us needed a simple supper. We came in about 50 minutes before closing. A large group of high school students took over 3 tables and still, the staff got to us & ensured that we were served. Very promot, polite and efficient. The mountain of fries were hot and tasty....
