ACC American Café

About ACC American Café

North Carolina is a hotbed for the Atlantic Coast Conference, one of the country’s most storied college sports conferences, which makes HMSHost’s ACC American Café perfect for both Raleigh-Durham and Piedmont Triad International Airport. Built to be a destination location and expose millions to the celebrated conference, ACC American Café brings some championship excitement to the airport, with a warm and welcoming atmosphere that reflects the spirit of the conference. The walls are covered in historic photos, real-time scoreboards, and live ACC Network games on television.

Dining With ACC Spirit

The menu at the ACC American Café appeals to all lifestyles with items crafted from fresh, locally-sourced ingredients. It is a sports bar at heart, but offers much more than that and was built to satisfy travelers of every age and demographic with items like flatbreads, Kobe beef burgers on brioche buns, and thick cut sweet potato fries; while the ACC Kids Club has special options for budding athletes.

Quintessentially North Carolina

ACC conference history is abundant throughout the North Carolina region and allegiances to different schools create lifetime bonds for the students and residents. For this reason, there was no better way to showcase North Carolina, and the local Raleigh-Durham and Greensboro areas specifically, than to showcase the ACC while offering a healthy, comfortable, and fun dining experience.

In the Collegiate Community

The ACC American Café isn’t just about the food, as the ACC and HMSHost use a portion of the proceeds from the restaurant to sponsor scholarships as part of the ACC Postgraduate Scholarship program. The scholarships are awarded annually to select student-athletes who intend to pursue a graduate degree following completion of their undergrad requirements. HMSHost also offers internship opportunities for ACC students who are studying in fields such as restaurant management, construction management and culinary development.
