“We’ve used Tailgate Express since it’s inception. They continue to improve their excellent customer service every year! Their deliveries are always very prompt! It’s just nice to actually have someone do what they say they’re going to do while providing such friendly customer service. I can always count on them which in turn allows me to sit back and enjoy our tailgate!”

Sindy Wilson

“If you have hosted a tailgate for friends and family at a Red Raider game, you know how much work is involved getting set up, taking it back down and cleaning up. I suggest letting John and the staff at Tailgate Express do the work for you. Tents, tables, chairs, music, and TV’s can all be arranged giving you more time to enjoy celebrating with your fellow Red Raiders.”

Terry Fuller

Market President, SouthWest Bank

“I’ve been using Tailgate Express since John got started in 2012. I commute from central Texas to attend as many home games as possible. TGE makes it possible for me, my family and friends to have a real tailgate experience. I appreciate the personal attention and the can-do, will-do attitude. There’s nothing too large or too small that they won’t tackle with genuine Red Raider spirt.”

Matt Beatty

“Working with the guys at Tailgate Express was a great experience. They were very professional and the tents, TVs, catering, etc. was even better than expected. It really took the hassle out of tailgating. We just showed up and enjoyed everything and they were there to clean up right after the game. We were impressed and will definitely use Tailgate Express in the future!”

Robin Casey

“The ease and peace of mind that you get with Tailgate Express is unmatched. Being able to show up to a fully loaded tailgate then being able to just leave when you are done…knowing they are handling everything involved in shutting down and cleaning up is extraordinary.”

We set up a tailgate themed sweepstakes and awarded a grand prize “ultimate tailgate experience” with 4 game tickets. The winner got the full experience with breakfast provided by Market Street and tailgate from TGE.”

Robin Cash

“Tailgate Express exceeded all expectations for our tailgate experience. I was looking for someone to take the lead and do it all, and they delivered. Everything was set up when we arrived. The staff checked on us frequently to make sure we did not need anything else. Ice, drinks, food and customer service were never lacking. I would truly recommend Tailgate Express for your tailgate experience. We are looking forward to another tailgate with TGE in the near future.”
