Tailgate Sports Bar & Grill
Tempe, AZ 85282
Phoenix New Times' Description
A "no sniveling" sign hangs adjacent to the bar at the Tailgate, which pretty much sums up the attitude of this Tempe spot: no nonsense, no frills, and no bull. Order something domestic as you saddle up to the bar, joining mid-day regulars who tend to drink their lunch (although daily food specials are also available). Free pool is offered on Sundays, all manner of sporting events are broadcast on 10 televisions, and both dartboards and arcade games are handy (in case the exploits of the local teams become too depressing to watch). The Tailgate, which also features live music on its stage, is frequented by the kinds of salt-of-the-earth clientele who wander over from neighboring industrial centers for an after-work pick-me-up. Whining about workplace woes is kept at an absolute minimum, however, as the aforementioned signage dictates.
