Cheba Hut, a stoner-themed sandwich shop, will kick open the doors to its first Dallas location later this month.

The restaurant is set to make its debut at 2808 Main Street on Monday, September 21, according to a press release. The restaurant’s new space is decorated with murals from a trio of local artists, one of which depicts Dallas’s iconic Reunion Tower reimagined as a bong.

The chain comes to Dallas by way of Tempe, Arizona, where it was founded in 1998. Since then, it’s expanded to multiple locations across the country, including outposts in Colorado, California, Ohio, Oregon, and Georgia, among other states. Cheba Hut’s first Texas outpost opened its doors in Austin earlier this year.

Diners can look forward to a slew of subs like the White Widow, a grilled chicken and veggie sandwich that’s slathered with ranch and named after an iconic marijuana strain. The sandwiches are available in three sizes — the nug, the pinner, and the blunt — all of which carry through the arguably over-the-top cannabis theme. Weirdly, though, there’s no cannabis-derived compounds on the menu, not even uber-trendy CBD oil.

Cheba Hut’s Dallas outpost will also boast non-alcoholic “Cottonmouth Cures,” a.k.a. sodas and Kool-Aid, and boozy cocktails like the Dirty Hippie, a mix of fresh cucumber, lemonade, and Deep Eddy Vodka. Thanks to the pandemic, Cheba Hut’s cocktails will be available for takeout.

When Cheba Hut opens on September 21, diners can place their takeout orders via Cheba Hut’s website, or order delivery via DoorDash.
