I chose Tobacco Road Sports Café in Durham for my daughter’s wedding rehearsal dinner a few weeks ago, and it turned out to be the perfect choice for this big event. Rommie and his staff more than exceeded my expectations in every way. They were easy to work with as I kept changing the details of the dinner during the many months of planning, and on the day of the dinner quickly made the necessary changes as the weather (ie: Tropical Storm Andrea) required the dinner to be moved from their outdoor patio to the interior banquet room. And the food was amazing!! Many, many, many compliments about how delicious everything was from the dinner guests. The wait staff kept things flowing at just the right pace, and treated us all like royalty. A splendid time was had by all!
Since your job's in Raleigh, give the Capital Boulevard location a try. We visit it often since it's just around the corner from our house. We love the burgers, fries and shakes (YUM!) and you get it at a good price. Yes, there is a lot on the menu (I really love the variety), but they are willing to wait for you to read it (given a reasonable time!). Like most fast-food places, the speakers seem like they're right out of a 60's drive-in movie, but I can usually get my message across and I ALWAYS hear the total! On a rare occasion, I may get something other than what I ordered, but that can happen anywhere. So don't write the whole chain off because of one bad experience. You're from Las Vegas - TAKE A CHANCE!
I have always appreciated the value of Tommy who manages the Durham store. Very personable, informed and up to date with information about equipment and products. I trust his suggestions and have always been pleased with the money spent. I recently upgraded my equipment (Dryer, pressing iron, curling irons, combs, brushes and clips) and have been more than satisfied with taking his suggestions and purchasing his recommendations. I already am finding his suggested choices are of the quality that I need to use daily. It is a great store, clean, organized and am treated with the respect that you just don't seem to receive at other stores, Davidson's in Raleigh and Cary included. It is worth the drive to Durham for me.
