Our kitchen features a full menu of great selections curated by Chef Andrew White, with a little something for everyone, including gluten free and vegetarian options.

Coming Soon:  Saturday and Sunday Brunches to get your weekend rolling right.

WHAT ABOUT THE NAME?

The name Thunder Road was inspired by two great cultural icons.

During and after the prohibition period the bootlegging route between Tennessee and Georgia was often referred to as the Thunder Road, as wiley moonshine bootleggers raced against the relentless pursuit of the ATF and local law enforcement.  This route was made famous by the classic Robert Mitchum movie of the same name.

…And of course the seminal opening track of Bruce Springsteen’s Born To Run album had a little something to do with it as well!

We hope you’ll enjoy our great vibe, great live music and great food!
