When we arrived there was a wait list of 30 minutes meanwhile waited on the bar and decided to eat there, the weather was good, the view gorgeous bc we had the lucky that day there was a game. Despite there were a lot of people the service was quickly and kind. We ordered Down east Nachos, Shrimp tacos and Tobacco Road cheesesteak. It was a lot food but all was delicious.

We had tickets to a play at DPAC and decided to eat somewhere close so we could park once. What a great experience. Even the waiting for a table was pleasant as we watched people and different food items come out. The Ultimate Nachos were amazing!!!! Tons of cheese and lots of flavor in the meat and beans. My friend got a big yummy salad. Great place. We'll be back.

Overall not bad. This review is base more on lack of staff than it is of the staff on hand. Although common in Europe to order from the bar, it’s not the case here in the U.S. there should be more wait staff on hand. Some people were confused and sat around for a bit before they realized that they had to go to the bar to order drinks and food. Regardless of where that sat in the establishment. In any case, the flight of Tobacco Road beer was very tasty and the Durham Bull burger was great. The tater tots were also cooked to perfection. Overall would rate Tobacco Road Sports Cafe higher if only patrons didn’t have to go to the bar to order food and drinks.

The BBQ nachos were amazing! The hot chicken sandwich was good as well. Customer service was top notch! Our server was Kendra and they did a fantastic job!

Excellent food and wonderful waitstaff. We sat inside in the beginning due to excessive heat and the music was a bit loud. As the evening progressed and it became cooler, they let us move to the patio and it was perfect. Highly recommend.

Went there with my team and it was a great place to enjoy the game at the patio. Patio seating is amazing. Food was great but could be better. I tried the Wolfpack hot chicken sandwich. It was good but not spicy. Their ultimate nachos were really good. But other food items like sliders , hummus etc were average.

Some of my coworkers and I visited this restaurant today for our team luncheon. We were seated, given our menus, and asked if we wanted anything to drink in a timely manner. The restaurant was fairly empty, so we didn’t have any competing noises or anything that would distract us from our moment. Our server was pleasant and knowledgeable. She helped to maintain a good atmosphere. She also checked on us periodically. For the most part, everyone enjoyed their meal; however, one person ordered a salmon dish but was never asked how she wanted the salmon cooked. The salmon was more rare than she liked it, but she did not want to send it back. My spicy dry rub wings were fantastic! The spicy flavor was not overpowering. The wings were seasoned well, had the right level of crisp and texture, and were a decent size. The portion was good for a lunch-size plate. I could have used more blue cheese dressing though. The amount of sauce provided with the wings was not sufficient.

01/22/23 review: we had lunch here before a show at the DPAC. We were seated promptly in the enclosed, heated patio overlooking the ballpark. We had the chopped salad with shrimp and the fried Buffalo chicken thigh sandwich. My salad was excellent. The Buffalo chicken thighs were not very tasty. The tater tots were pretty good. Our server was friendly and attentive. The prices are very good for this downtown restaurant. Portions were good.
