Why We Opened

Tobacco Road

Tobacco Road Sports Cafe is a dream that came true for the Amra brothers. Being avid sports fans and foodies, they had a vision of a new category of sports restaurant. One where your friends and family actually want to go watch the game with you and where you know your kids can get a healthy, fresh and delicious meal. Where the food isn’t thawed out and then deep-fried. Where the staff not only know a thing or two about sports, but understand the importance of a request to view a particular game (or a few games) and the desire to enjoy exceptional service where your needs are anticipated and met.


Making this vision a reality requires constant attention and focus from the brothers, but also the ongoing support of an amazing and dedicated Tobacco Road team. We are proud to have a management team that consists almost entirely of Tobacco Road team members that joined us in part-time positions (servers, hostesses, bartenders) and have since become members of the Tobacco Road family. Everyone on our management team has a passion and dedication to our vision and brings qualities and skills to Tobacco Road that help ensure that we meet and exceed the expectations of our guests.

At Tobacco Road, You Can Expect:


You definitely won’t find greasy, fresh-out-of-freezer food here. Tobacco Road boasts a creative range of dishes crafted lovingly by our executive chef. From salads to steaks, guests can enjoy an inventive array of items including down home regional classics (with our own special spin, of course), gourmet entrees and plenty of healthy alternatives beyond your usual salad choices.


We know what kind of service we expect when we choose to dine out and how disappointing it is when restaurants fall short of these expectations. At Tobacco Road we strive for service perfection. From the hostess that will sincerely and warmly welcome you to our restaurant, to the server that pays careful attention to your needs and the chef that ensures that your food is prepared to your expectations—in everything we do, we want to give you a dining experience that is flawless.


We will carry every single sports package available—from major league baseball to cricket—shown on screens throughout the restaurant, situated with your viewing comfort in mind. For those of you that enjoy a healthy sports debate with fellow avid sports fans, look no further than Tobacco Road. A love of sports is a prerequisite for employment.
