Our Website is Finally Up!

Check it out at tobaccoroadsportscafe.com. Huge thank you to David Link, the NCSU Design School student that created our temporary site, our new site and the graphics for our blog. Thanks so much for your creativity and your patience. Another thank you to Karen Crowe, a server at Tobacco Road that is also a photographer. Karen took some quick interior shots for us that allowed us to finally get the site up. We'll try to get some more photos, including some food shots, in the coming weeks and get them on the site.

Note on Free Parking
There is a parking garage directly behind our building with plenty of spaces. Just ask your server or the hostess for a token to exit the garage for free.

New Year's Eve
We will definitely be open on New Year's Eve, so stop by, say hello and check out Tobacco Road. There is no cover, no dress code and we will be serving food until 2 a.m. (as with every other night).

Check out the Tobacco Road Sports Cafe Menu

First off, I'd like to apologize for not posting updates more often. We have all been pretty busy, although that is still no excuse--nothing is more annoying than yet another blog that never seems to be updated. We promise to be better moving forward.

The good news is that the hard work is paying off and we are very close to opening. Our website is receiving the final touches and will include photos of the interior and a few shots of menu items. Speaking of our menu, we are proud to provide a preview here. Click here to download a printable version.

This menu was created by our executive chef, Juan Esparza and features some North Carolina favorites including Sweet Potato Fries, a BBQ sandwich and Cheddar Grits--as well as some fresh alternatives including numerous vegetarian items such as Cabbage Rolls, Jumbo Black Eyed Pea Cakes and our Hurricane Tomato Sandwich. Many of our menu items are made with North Carolina products, seafood and produce. Let us know what you think of the menu. Of course, we hope that you'll come in and try it for yourself.
