Stopped in here for dinner last week after spending the day visiting WVU with my son, wife and daughter. Our WVU tour guide recommended the place. The burgers were delicious. I'm off carbs right now but my family really liked the fries and my kids loved the milkshakes. The mac & cheese bites were also very good. Without knowing it... More

My dad took me to lunch here, and I'm really glad he did. Tailpipes offers a wide variety of creative burgers to choose from. I had the roadrunner burger. It was so good, I want to run down the road right back to Tailpipes! The restaurant has an inviting retro vibe. It even has pinball machines to play. All of... More

Wow. Fantastic Classic Burger and Fries. Great atmosphere and service. My wife was also pleased with the healthy choices on the menu. Fresh sautéed mushrooms and onions on her burger and delicious side salad.

We've traveled a lot and ate at a number of restaurants from high end restaurants to fast food joints. This place has the best burgers ever. Timely with great customer service.

Stopped her on a short trip to Morgantown WV. Heard the burgers were good-but they were GREAT! What a bargain for $10 including fab fries 🍟 with a special secret dipping sauce. We had the Camaro and a special- carmelized onions, bacon, blue cheese and pickles. Both were excellent. Finished off the meal with a shared chocolate peanut shake. Would... More

I've stayed in Morgantown twice so far, while passing through during holiday travel. Each time, I've stayed in a hotel outside of the downtown area. First time through, Tailpipes was closed when I saw it, but it looked interesting. This time, I made a trip downtown specifically for it, and had my socks knocked off (figuratively). Some places put all... More

We were in Morgantown visiting our granddaughter who is a student at WVU. She has been there many times but this was a first for us. Service was good and the burgers were really good.

Quaint little local jewel. Morgantown is the half-way spot between us (Indiana) and our Navy son (Norfolk, VA). We like to find local eats and this time, we were looking for an All-American meal of burgers and fries. While they were busy, it took a while for us to get our food but worth the wait. Burgers are cooked to... More

Five of us ordered and only four of us received our food that took 30 minutes to prepare. Had to wait another ten minutes to get our missing sandwich. My bacon cheeseburger was missing bacon and found a mushroom which I hate on it. Servers were polite to fix problem that comes from the kitchen. Food was delicious and sauce... More

Thank you for taking the time to leave such a thoughtful review. It sounds like we got a little disorganized that night, and we are very sorry for both the wait and the mistake.
