“Great takeout..”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2013

In town for a Ski/Snowboard Trip. Hotel recommended the takeout as we where looking for wings. Tough menu to navigate with several wing sauces (and mild, medium, hot, atomic) option for each wings. Servers was great on the phone.... got the order done and out the door in promised time. Great value feed 6 people with wings and a few appetizers for less than $60.

Chaos. chaos. Had to get the attention of the GM to get service. Once we received service it went ok.

“Lot's of folks enjoying football, good food!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 7, 2012

Haven’t been to Tailgatz in a couple months but earlier this week they posted a great coupon through Deal Chicken that I purchased. We decided we would go back last night with another couple for a casual dinner out. When we drove up the lot was pretty full. I noted when we walked in the door that Thursday night football was on several sets with an enthusiastic crowd surrounding each. The special on Thursday is 99 cent tenders. They also had a drink special on Leinenkugel seasonal beer called Snowdrift Vanilla Porter for 2.50 a pint. I tried the beer and it was terrific. Our party of four all had boneless wings and chicken tenders in a combination of garlic parmesan and mild and hot sauce. The chicken has been moist and tender every time we come and last night was no exception. The table also had a half side of cob salad and a half side of regular salad, both were fresh and tasty. We attempted to order sweet potato fries but unfortunately they were out. Service is pretty good. Not overly attentive but accommodating and friendly. The value for what you get is terrific and when combined with the coupons is hard to beat.

“This review is a long time coming...”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 24, 2012

My husband, son and I really do like the food here. The thing is, we really only come here on Thursday nights for the $0.99 chicken tenders. On rare ocassions, we have come here on other nights of the week.

When people ask me about this place, this is what I say; "the food is good, it's kind of loud, so good place to take a toddler, but the service is downright inconsistent".

Some nights we'll go there and get the greatest service ever, then the next time; service is so bad we say we're never going back. When we do break down and go back, there's someone visiting our table every 15 minutes asking us how things are going (like I said to the last 3 people, WE'RE FINE...NOW LET US EAT ALREADY". We showed up again last Friday, and our waitress was downright useless! It's really irritating.

As I said, food is good. If you're looking for bar food, It's food service stuff in a sports, sorry sportz, (who's 15 year old came up with that?) bar. The one side of veggies on the menu is broccoli, which is frozen and served floating in butter flavored water, and for some reason, they put lettuce and tomato on a pulled pork sandwich. By the way, when you say there's an "onion ring" on your pulled pork sandwich, people are expecting a FRIED onion ring, not just a slice of raw, red onion. Burgers come with "saratoga chips" (a.k.a. potato chips from the fryer) and if you want fries (like most red-blooded americans) instead, that'll cost you! If you're ordering dinner, order a water along with whatever beverage you're drinking because, chances are, no one will be around when your drink is gone and you'll have the water as back up. Waiting for the check takes a while as well!

They have "outdoor seating" which is nothing less than sad. It's 4 tables in the parking lot with some plastic flags tied to old beer kegs roping off the area. I wouldn't eat out there at the risk of getting run over during my meal.

If you don't mind the seriously inconsistent service and like chicken tenders, go on $0.99 Tender Thursday and go somewhere else the rest of the week.

“New name and menu”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 26, 2012 via mobile

Have been to its former namesake Buffalo Wings and Rings many times. I was hoping the wings remained the same. We asked our server how to order off the new menu so we would get dishes close to what we had in the past. Thankfully they hadn't changed too much and were really good! They are going to continue offering their daily drink specials which when combined with the meal offers a decent value overall.
