We came here to watch the tournament games. The food was delicious and the beer selection was great! Glad Tobacco Road came to Chapel Hill! We will be back!

“Great fun - great service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 20, 2013

We (approx. 12-15) stayed a little late and they had only one bartender but he was amazing! The food and drinks were reasonably priced and plenty of TV's for viewing.

“Half Pound Burger at Happy Hour!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 13, 2013

First time here for Happy Hour which lasts from 4pm to 6pm. During that time any drink over $2.50 gets you a happy hour meal for $2.95. I ordered the burger and thought it would be a small plate, but I was pleasantly surprised to receive a huge, perfectly cooked, and delicious half pound burger with all the fixins, and (my choice) tobacco onion rings (more like straws but delicious anyway)! I was full and truly enjoyed the atmosphere and the service.

My friends had the cheddar cheese fries, the house salad, wings, and fried green tomato sandwich. Each person said their selection was filling and delicious. We will definitely be back!

The only reason I didn't give it five stars is because my Carolina Hurricane was a bit on the expensive side (the $2.50 is mostly beer). But all in all, a great experience!

“I have been looking forward to trying this place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 12, 2013

I have been looking forward to trying this place and it did not disappoint. Nice large open spaces and of course lots of big TV's. I was impressed with the variety on the menu and will certainly be back. I tried the chips with pico de gallo and some hoppin john and both were good.

“Horrible service ruined what may have been decent food”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 8, 2013 via mobile

Average sports bar atmosphere & menu. Absolutely horrible service. Waiter greeted us and took an app order & did not return for at least 15 minutes. Finished our drinks and the waited forever to get refills. When he finally returned with drinks, we decided to order right then because we were worried about how long it would be before he came back. After someone else brought our food, we were almost finished before he ever returned. At that point we were just ready to get out of there. Said something to manager on the way out the door. While she offered us a gift card, we politely declined (1) because we were traveling thru but (2) we have no intentions of going back.
