Cheba Hut Brings ‘Toasted’ Subs for Stoners to Denton

Plus the Finch’s raw bar and Andrew’s revives “Dallas-style” pizza in your AM dining intel

The sunlight gleams off a glass window with a yellow pane. The words “Coming Attractions” cascade down the slide in white.
What’s hot, what’s fresh, what’s coming to Dallas.

Got the munchies? Then you’re exactly the customer Cheba Hut is looking for in Denton. This marijuana-themed sub shop’s owner, Bhavik Bhakta, chose Denton because it “fits the expressive culture of Cheba Hut, with artwork, music festivals, and more,” a press release said. And it doesn’t hurt that it’s close to the University of North Texas.

It will have 30+ signature sub sandwiches on the menu, plus salads, Rice Krispie treats (of course), and a full-service bar. The shop opens on October 17.

Cheba Hut will be located at 1611 West Eagle Drive, Suite 109 in Denton.

Another new spot is opening in Mockingbird Station: The Finch. This raw grill and bar, conceived by Dallas-based Milkshake Concepts, will have a raw bar and boast a large patio. According to a press release, it will serve food all day and aims to be a destination for lunch, brunch, and happy hour. Chef Eric Freidline is working up a menu that includes crab dip with trout caviar, salmon and poached beet salad, Bombay chicken tikka pizza, and a Japanese A5 ribeye katsu sandwich. The opening is expected in mid-November.

The Finch will be at 5307 E Mockingbird Lane, Suite 150.

Andrew’s is bringing another pizza spot to the Dallas scene this fall. Andrew and Jennifer Albert, who previously had Picasso’s Pizza & Grill, will open in Plano, and yes, they are bringing “Dallas-style pizza” back. If you didn’t enjoy it at Picasso’s, that is a hand-rolled, thin-crust pizza you build yourself from 15+ combinations of ingredients.

Andrew’s will also serve Chicago, Detroit, New York, and tavern-style pizzas. According to a press release, dough and sauces will all be made in-house. There will also be a full bar, and the entire menu, including drinks, will be available for delivery.

Andrew’s pizza will be at 1401 Preston Rd. in Plano.

Multiple pizzas in multiple styles with varied toppings are styled together on a white, flat surface. All are served on wooden boards.
