Cheba Hut brings 'toasted' sub sandwiches and pot puns to Fort Worth
A marijuana-obsessed sandwich shop is coming to Fort Worth. Called Cheba Hut, it's a sandwich chain based in Colorado that's known for its "toasted subs," and will open at 1217 8th Ave. #115, in a former SuperChix location, in the same complex as Wabi House and White Rhino Coffee.
According to a release, it will open on June 27.
Founded in 1998, Cheba Hut aspires to do high-quality food but in a relaxed environment. There are currently 30-plus locations including Dallas, which opened in 2020. Fort Worth will be the fifth in Texas.
The menu has more than two dozen sub sandwiches, all with amusing pot-themed names like Acapulco Gold (chicken breast with BBQ sauce and Swiss cheese), Panama Red (chicken breast with marinara, provolone, and parmesan), and Chronic (roast beef with BBQ sauce, green pepper, mushrooms, and cheddar).
Six veggie subs include the Silver Haze, with hummus and Swiss cheese; Magic Mushroom with portabella, pepperjack, and teriyaki glaze; and the Power Plant, with guacamole, hummus, and feta.
There are a few classic salads such as a Greek salad and an antipasto salad, while starters and sides are filed under a category called Munchies. It includes meatballs, hummus platter, nachos, and garlic cheese bread.
Although the menu boasts a marijuana theme, there is no actual marijuana in the products. Boo. But the quality of their sub sandwiches earns high marks.
Cheba is being brought to Fort Worth by franchisee Chance Steed, a former professional poker player who grew up in Fort Worth, who was blown away by Cheba Hut after discovering it during a snowboarding trip.
In addition to their 30-plus of their signature sandwiches, Cheba Hut also offers a full-service bar, featuring cocktails such as the Dirty Hippie with Deep Eddy vodka, lemonade, and muddled fresh cucumbers; and a Long Island Iced Tea with Red Bull that they call the Hash Can. The beer list comprises of national and local favorites including St. Arnold, Holler Brewing, Eureka Heights, Karbach Brewing, and O’Dell Brewery
Non-alcoholic drinks are "Cottonmouth Cures" and include iced tea, beer, Red Bull, and Kool-Aid.
Four fabulous stoner desserts include a Rice Krispie bar, chocolate chip cookies, and brownies. "Of course we have brownies on our menu, and of course they are the best brownies in town," the menu says.
