Cheba Hut, the Arizona-born sandwich shop that’s designed to appeal to stoners, will soon open three new locations in the Dallas-Fort Worth metroplex.

Local franchisee Bhavik Bhakta has inked a deal to bring three new outposts of Cheba Hut to DFW, and first up is Denton. It’s a move that makes sense, considering the average college student’s propensity for weed. As for the two other locations, Bhakta is currently scoping out addresses in North Dallas for the second outpost, but has not yet announced where the third Cheba Hut he’s got planned will set up shop.

The sandwich shop, known for its cheekily named offerings and obvious overtures to the stoner crowd, was founded in Tempe, Arizona, in 1998. From there, it’s expanded to numerous locations across the country, including the first DFW location, which opened in Deep Ellum in September 2020. There are currently five Cheba Hut locations in Texas, the first of which opened in Austin last year.

For those who aren’t familiar with the food at Cheba Hut, the menu boasts a slew of creative sandwiches like the Pakalolo, which combines ham, swiss, and pineapple. Classics like the French dip and BLT are on offer, along with a solid pizza sub and plenty of veggie-packed options. The shop’s “Cotton Mouth Cures,” aka drinks, range from local brews to cocktails like the Dirty Hippie, a mix of Deep Eddy vodka, fresh cucumbers, and lemonade.

The Denton location of Cheba Hut is expected to arrive in early 2022. Stay tuned for more details on the arrival fo of the North Dallas restaurant, and future outposts.
