Tailgators meant a lot to us as when we first saw our home in Sussex and decided we wanted to buy it, because it was the restaurant we chose to try with our realtor to sign the paperwork for the offer.
We instantly liked this place for its food and family-friendly atmosphere. We have gone there quite a few times, but lately have not as we were trying other local places.
We went back last night. The restaurant part was totally filled up, and at first they told us we would have to wait 20 minutes which we decided to do. Well, within seven or 10 minutes we were sitting down.
"One of the very best prime ribs I've had, and when I asked for rare, that is exactly what I got."
The girls were not very hungry so they just went for Mac & Cheese. My husband went for the beef stroganoff (which he loved) and I for their special of the day: prime rib queen cut.
I still cannot believe I ate it all! One of the very best prime ribs I've had, and when I asked for rare, that is exactly what I got. It came with sides, and I chose mashed potatoes and steamed broccoli.
Out of all of these type of sports bar and grille restaurants in Sussex, I DO love Tailgator's for its atmosphere, cozyness and actual food. Also, not only is the service excellent, they are very nice too. Jennifer, the lady who was our waitress, was absolutely fantastic, always checking if everything was ok or if we needed anything else.
