Tobacco Road – Downtown Miami – CLOSED

I’ve tried multiple times to get a good shot of the Mega Mega Burger for you but it wasn’t until I finally had lunch at Tobacco Road that I had that opportunity. All my previous pictures are very dark (well it was dark when I took them) but that’s part of the charm at Tobacco Road. There’s so much Miami history at the Road that everything feels very familiar when you walk in.

A few things first. I’ve been here quite a few times and usually later, around Midnight. So…getting to the apps, we ordered their Wings(Smoked and available in either Smoked Thai, Barbeque or Classic Buffalo in quantities of 10 or 20). We ordered 10 Barbeque and 10 Buffalo. The wings were phenomenal and although I like the Buffalo version, the Barbeque outshined ( gratuitous Soundgarden reference) them.

Buffalo Wings

That sauce is ridiculous. We also had the Grilled Chicken Nachos (5 large pyramid-like chips with guacamole, sour cream, jalapenos, and Swiss cheese melted over them with a side of salsa). I found these to be pretty good but not as good as the wings, the melted Swiss was a nice touch since I love Swiss (the cheese not the people).

Mega-Mega Burger

Mega-Mega Bite

If you’re torn as to which burger to order I’d say either go original with The Classic Road Burger or go all out with the Mega-Mega Burger (served open faced with cheddar cheese, chili, mushrooms, bacon & a fried egg). Into flavor overload? Then you made your decision, the Mega-Mega is the burger for you. You won’t be disappointed but you will have to use a fork and knife to eat this guy.

    mexican water tastes better than the diet coke at Tobacco Road! It’s probably more like dirty pirate hooker sweat! Anything with an egg atop it gets my salivary glands a-goin’. Will have to try the Mega Mega, thanks Burger Beast!

    the reason why their fountain sodas taste like is most likely because they've never ever changed the filters on it, NASTY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Tobacco is so nasty. eat the burger but be sure to not put your elbows on the counter or they’ll stick there forever.

    What? No love for the Death Burger? As much as I love a fried egg on a cheese burger, I always felt it was the Death Burger (extra Death, please) that made the ‘Road special as a burger joint.

    I used to come to Tobacco Road all the time, in those days Nil Lara was the headline act. It’s been decades. Then we discovered this website, and each Sunday, my lunch mates and I go on a burger adventure. Today was tobacco road. It did not disappoint. We started with the bbq wings, and frankly that was the show stopper. We followed with perfectly executed classic burgers. We did not have time for anything else, as the clock was ticking and we had to return to work. All in all we were very happy and satisfied.
