Description: Tobacco Road is not a sports bar. Brothers Brian, Alex and Rommie Amra share a passion for both sports and good food. Unfortunately, they found that their favorite places to watch the game were never the same as their favorite places to eat, and decided to remedy this for the people of the Triangle. As a result, the Amras are unwavering in their insistence that as much emphasis be placed on the menu as what’s on the 40+ HDTVs that surround guests in the Tobacco Road bar. For a quieter and more formal dining experience, guests can enjoy their meal in the main dining room or reserve Tobacco Road's private dining room for special events. Tobacco Road strives to provide its guests with: 1. Fresh, delicious food. 2. Exceptional service. 3. All that the sports fan could ask for.

Good Food, Good Price, Difficult to get a seat. We usually head over to this area for a DPAC show. They do not take reservations, and it's always a challenge to get a table. Go early, just in case.

Convenient location if you're attending a ballgame or a show at DPAC. Lively noisy sports bar inside and a large outdoor patio overlooking the ball field for nice-weather dining. Food is average to fairly good but tends to be quite variable. Recently had very disappointing beef rib and salmon dishes, both dry and overcooked and ribs were mostly fat.

tobacco Road is more bar than eatery. Surroundings casual loaded with TV. Limited menu,lots of spicy food. I chose the burger .Our waitress got our orders wrong three times. The noise level TOO much!

Setting directly at the Bull's baseball stadium is really nice. They serve a number of good craft beers including own brews. We had green fried tomatoes which were not really good and some average buffalo wings as a starter. Burgers were cooked as ordered which is a plus. I would go there for the view and atmosphere but not for the food

I have eaten lunch at Tobacco Road many times. This last visit was disappointing. Pleasant atmosphere; service just fine; food very average. I remember having burgers there that were excellent - now just okay.
