Good bar food and good people

I've had several items on their menu and all met my expectations. I really liked their potato poppers. Lots of fried foods but several different kinds of salads that are pretty good. All in all its a good place for a sandwich and a beer. They have a lot of draft beers as well as bottled. I have... read more

Like any bar, Tailgaters should be used mostly for their beverages, appetizers, burgers and ESPN options. Even on the dining side there are more TV's on the wall than windows or framed pictures. I've watched several football games here on both sides (restaurant and bar). I've had their cheeseburger - it's decent. Their chicken taco salad was runny and bland;... More

Service wasn't great, but to be fair we were there for a soccer club meeting. Their food is typical diner fare with lots of fried offerings and very few fresh items. Very average.

When you think sports bar you automatically think just bar food and TV's and beer. The food menu is actually very large and everything I've tried off of it has been extremely delicious. They have a huge beer selection as well. You can choose to sit in the restaurant side or the bar side both of which provide great service... More

Large, well prepared, moist with an excellent sauce. Hard to beat.. on the eat ins, had the light beer. large mugs at a good price.... More

If beer is your thing, this is the place in Wasilla. A place where the locals meet to share a beer and steak or burger. Appropriate atmosphere, but the last time I was there the service was lousy. It was slow in coming and wrong when it finally got to our tabe.

The waitress was SO rude it took my breath away. My food was GROSS, and I waited 45 minutes for 10 wings and a soda salad. I will NEVER come back here.

Not super impressed but hey there is a bar there so I don't think they are relying on the ability to make food :). Food was a bit greasy but maybe it was what I ordered. Service was awesome and I think it deserves a return trip.

The best place in Wasilla to watch a game. The food is great and the people there are friendly. They will have every game on a tv in different parts of the dining area. Very fun atmosphere to be around.

As a avid New England Patriots football fan, I was looking for a place to watch the game on TV in Wasilla AK in December. My wife and I found Tailgaters and were extremely impressed. I had not expected to see such a nice place in Wasilla. Tailgaters had all the NFL games on their multiple TVs. We actually arrived... More
