Great burgers and fries

Have been here a few times and have never been disappointed. The burgers are huge and very good. I can barely get my mouth around it and they put a ton of bacon on it. The fries are huge so only order one for a group. Prices are good too.

After a long day on Skyline Drive, we pulled into Waynesboro very hungry. The restaurant was crowded (surprising since it was a Wednesday night). The menu is mostly burgers with a few other options. Service was very slow since there was not enough wait staff for the full house. We sat outside on the patio. Our table was not ready... More

As everyone says: the Fries will shock you-they seem to expand faster than rabbits. Order just a small order unless you are a GLUTTON for punishment. The BEST hamburger anywhere! This is 1 great local restaurant. the Sports pics and autographs just add to a pleasurable experience.

We stopped in Waynesboro on our way to Shenandoah National Park, and stopped at the visitor center to orient ourselves to the area. The man at the visitor center was very friendly and very helpful and suggested several restaurants in Waynesboro. We chose The Tailgate Grill and were happy with our choice. If you want hearty food at cheap prices,... More

Thanks to Trip Advisor reviews we tried Tailgate which was in walking distance from our hotel. The previous reviewers were right. Food, service, staff was great.

I have had lunch here many times. The food is always good as is the service. Parking can be a bit tough at times.

For what it is, it should get 5 stars. First the meat is hand formed and each burger is truly custom made just you want it...from local organic beef. Secondly, the price can NOT be beat! These women run a very clean, pleasant and high quality food shop. Don't be seduced by the ease of drive through fast food. You... More

We've eaten at so many other restaurants and it seems that every hole in the wall is the best. Nothing fancy by any means and no wine only beer, but excellent burgers, fries, cheese sticks, and hot dog. Try it out for yourself!

If you're looking for good food at a good price, this is your place. The burgers are fantastic and the fries are ALWAYS hot. This is often the place we end up when looking for a last-minute dining choice. Family friendly and the staff is outstanding. I would recommend Tailgate to anyone looking for an easy family meal.
