For those traveling in for the game. Space on Tigerlane is sold out for the season. So visiting tailgaters usually set up in Tobey park north east of stadium.

If you're not tailgating yourself, take a stroll through Tigerlane located at west gate of stadium. Heck you might even be invited to join those set up there. Lots of friendly fans.

Central BBQ a local favorite is located on central Ave one block NW of stadium. Applebee's is on union just west of cooper. Suggest taking E Parkway heading north and Union is first overpass exit. Another local favorite the BBQ Shoppe is on Madison Ave which is next street past Union. It dead ends into E Parkway right past Union overpass.

There's an I-Hop on Union for those that want breakfast but don't want to drive far from stadium. For those who do I suggest Bryant's on summer Ave just west of Graham. Or Pancake Shop on summer just west of 40/240 intersection.

Be alert at all time. We have a well earned dubious reputation.

 

Post game for those who partake of music and adult beverages there's always Beale Street.

For those who chose more family activities the Fall Nationals will be taking place across the river at Riverside International Speedway. They will have 360 winged sprints, 305 winged sprints, late models and stocks. Suggest you sit in east side stands and bring OFF to ward off skeeters.

 

West Memphis has a casino located at the old dog track.

 

There's also a cluster of casinos south of Memphis in Tunica Ms. Take 55 south and take the 69 exit west right before you get to Hernando.

 

Drive safely

No mention of Rendezvous or Interstate BBQ?

Thanks sincerely for the info.  What is the best fan board for you guys?  Look forward to having you visit Denton soon.

While both have good food the Rendezvous is more of a white collar tourist destination. Locals usually eat elsewhere.

As far as Interstate, all locations are good but wouldn't suggest tourist visit the original 3rd street location. Main parking is behind restaurant in dimly lit lot. 

They do have a Southaven Miss location on Stateline road east of 55.

Central has a local off south Main St across from National Civil Rights Museum, but wouldn't suggest tourist visit that location after dark.

 

For something different I suggest Paynes BBQ at Lamar and Walker (about a mile from stadium). Ms Emily has a sweeter sauce and mustard based slaw.  Kinda quaint place located in an old gas station. And uses rejected potato chip bags instead of regular paper bags for to go orders. Great BBQ Balogna sandwiches.

 

It's embarrassing to say but the head of our Chamber of Commerce was shot and killed a few years back because he wandered too far south off Beale St.

 

Oh yea, we do have a What-A-Burger location open in Southaven on Goodman Rd east of 55.

I would suggest Southaven/Hornlake for those plan on getting motel room over night.  Or maybe a casino hotel in Tunica. BTW some of the casinos have sports books.

 

Forgot to mention Tobey Park doesn't have electrical hook ups. If you tailgate there you'll need portable generator. Tobey is located just to north west of this map. Map facing west.

 

Preparing for major upgrade to stadium so some lots may not be available.

 

Going 100% e-ticket and e-parking passes this year, being only second home game there could be delays and screw ups.liberty%20bowl%20aa%20tailgate.png

Do we play there next year?

Would be interesting to see Seth return to play in his home town.

How did y'all let him get away?

In just 13 games he already 9th in career passing yards.

We've had a streak of three great QBs before him, Lynch, Ferguson, and White.

All three broke some Tigers passing record while playing here.

But Henigan is on pace to own all the records if he plays three years.

We have Austin Aune.
