Christian's Tailgate is not fancy. No frills. Nothing out of the ordinary. It is exactly what you expect a hamburger joint to be. And, it was perfect.
They have 3 different sizes of burgers (1/3 lb., 1/2 lb., and a double, 1 lb). The 1/3 is what I ordered and it was plenty thick and fairly juicy. Is this very best burger I've ever had in my entire life? No. But, is it a super, great burger for $4.49? Absolutely! I will go back there. Very tasty. Tender, moist meat. Lots of melty, gooey cheese. Not too greasy, but enough burger grease for those times when you really need it! :)
1/3 lb. Cheeseburger and French Fries
The french fries were extra crispy, yet still soft on the inside. So they aren't homemade cut fries -- I'm okay with that! They were still most flavorsome. The onion rings were crunchy on the outside with the sweetness of the onions on the inside.
The hot dog was good, too. Again, what you expect in a hot dog, and what you actually want in a hot dog. Good beefy flavor. Not dried out. Soft bun.

Let me also mention that the service was really commendable. The staff was extremely considerate and nice. And, our order was cooked up quickly.
It took me a while to visit Christian's Tailgate, but I was not disappointed. I look forward to going back.
