“New name and menu”
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.

“This restaurant has changed its name / brand. The sign says its new name is Tailgates.”
Reviewed August 4, 2012 via mobile

Been to BWR many times but they just changed there name overnight to Tailgates. Will update once I try the new menu. This place had been selling a lot of deal chicken coupons. Will be interesting to see if they will continue to be honored.

“Business is picking up.”
Reviewed June 18, 2012

Have been going to this place off and on since it's opening a few years ago. Recently business for them seems to be picking up. They have been doing some advertising which may be paying off. We ate there last night for fathers day. I had All you can eat wings for 9.99. They were perfect and very consistent with my past experience. My wife had chicken cesar salad which she really enjoyed. Most nights they offer a drink special. Last night they had a Point seasonal beer special for 2.50 a pint, quite good with the wings.

“Good food, odd service.”
Reviewed May 29, 2012

We've just recently starting going to this restaurant because of a change in residence; food is good, but the staffing seems very out of whack. Always way too many servers which make you feel uncomfortable. Servers also seem a bit disenchanted about their lack of business/opportunity for tips – staff less and your servers will appear to enjoy being at work.
Needs some energy - turn up the lights a bit, add some volume via music or TV - it is a sports bar after all. It's unfortunate because they seem to be slow a lot - while they're wings are actually much better than the competition and the prices are very reasonable. A lot of potential, but management seems to have given up.
