Best mashed burger in town, my kids enjoy the large hot dogs and the portion of fresh fries is just amazing.

Great burgers. LOTS of shoe string fries. Ask them what size you should order. You will probably get too much. Lots of young women working there. Very helpful. Not expensive.

Yes this place is fried everything but it was fantastic. Seriously a great burger, very juicy and greasy just how we like them. The fried pickles were awesome! The cheese fries were awesome. We got the mac and cheese bites and they were very good as well. They also have cheap Michelob Ultra at 2.50 a bottle , which is... More

This was our first visit here. We have been wanting to try this place for a long time because it has received a local award for several years for "Best Burger in Town". I was disappointed, It was not bad, But definitely NOT a great burger. The fries were terrible, they were hot and fresh but as soon as they... More

We headed her straight from a hike in SNP because of all the positive TA reviews. All I can say is wow, the food was great! We had some good sweet tea, medium fries and bacon cheeseburgers. The burgers were great--cooked to perfection with just the right amount of grease, loads of well cooked quality Bacon, and a good roll!... More

This is a local spot that serves juicy burgers with an abundance of fries. It can get packed so if your eating in give yourself sometime. Most people take it to go and when weather is permitting you are able to eat outside. Better than McDonald's and about the same prices.

I have driven by Tailgate Grill many times and noticed the parking lot full of vehicles. I read the reviews for best hamburger and decided to stop by. For some reason the name and building made me think it would be a bar. But it is not. I was delighted to see a restaurant with families. The place was packed... More
