“Good food, cheap beer.”
That’s the motto Toby More holds for his new restaurant, Tailgaters Sports Bar and Grill, located in the Auburn Off-Track Betting building.
The former maintenance supervisor said he always wanted to open his own bar, and when the spot’s former occupant Ozzy’s closed its doors at the end of May, More decided that was his chance.
“I’ve always wanted to get into the bar business,” he said. “I heard the lease was available. It was affordable and I figured now is the time to take my shot or else I’m never going to get to do it.”
After signing the lease at the beginning of June, More worked with friend and experienced restaurant manager Liz Look to get the bar ready for its grand opening on Oct. 21.
