Having eaten at the Tailgate twice, and wanting to eat in my motel room, I called in for their cheeseburger w/o catsup and an order of onion rings. I arrived at the time they said it would be ready, in a bag by the cash register. I got it back to my room and it was still hot, as ordered,... More

This spot is one of our favorites...great food and great prices too. Their burgers are "handcrafted" and the tastiest you can buy. I love their bacon cheeseburgers the best. Of course, they have an extensive menu with other equally great offerings. This is a classic eatery that all the locals know well. Don't be distracted by the national chains...this spot... More

Great burgers made to order. The fries and onion ring portions are HUGE. My son and I share small orders of fries. Quick and friendly service. This place is a great addition to the Waynesboro restaurant selection.

The Tailgate Grill offers has the best burger in town. Not only is the quality great - the quantity is unbelievable. They have a good variety on the menu but you can't beat the burgers and fries. Service is efficient and friendly.

This place is s small place but very popular with the locals. Have been there 3 times during my work stay here in Waynesboro. Their fries are very good but they serve them as an appetizer instead of with your meal. Have never seen that and while they do give way more fries than average for even a small order,... More

great value. Was here with my daughters. Not special by any sense I can contrive, but at the same time very good, satisfying food rightly priced and positively served, a very pleasant experience - closes at eight so get there early.

I have enjoyed stopping by Tailgater. Sitting at the counter you will see fresh hamburger being placed on the grill. But then they do the unthinkable--they keep flattening it, squishing it with the spatula, squeezing all of the juice out, again and again. But then I noticed the menu which states ALL Burgers cooked WELL DONE! Resulting in a very... More

Outstanding food and fast service! The single hamburger is huge!! A basket of fries or onion rings will feed a family! Delicious!

Wow, what a burger! Real meat, made to order, nice bun and the French Fries are to die for. A small order is huge and plenty for two people, of course we always get the medium order. Love their BLT, too.
