Weed-Themed Cheba Hut Sandwich Restaurant Chain Brings Toasted Subs to Chicago

Notorious for their “toasted” subs and other weed-themed menu items, Cheba Hut plans to open a sandwich restaurant and full bar in Bucktown by the end of 2019.

Cheba Hut Menu Will Feature Sandwiches & Other Appetizers

Cheba Hut is an Arizona-based sandwich restaurant chain that has never ventured into Chicago before, but with the upcoming legalization of recreational marijuana, this weed-themed sandwich shop plans to capitalize on the new market. The Cheba Hut menu will not actually feature the devil’s lettuce itself. However, Cheba Hut prides itself on being a hot spot for stoners who want to elevate their high with mouthwatering munchies and “toasted” subs.

You can get your Cheba Hut sandwich in one of three sizes: a 4-inch “nug,” an 8-inch “pinner,” and a 12-inch “blunt.” All of the sandwiches at this restaurant are named for strains of cannabis, and each sandwich restaurant location offers a slightly adjusted menu to incorporate the local culture, which is why the Chicago venture might include something similar to our famed Italian Beef sandwich or a Chicago dog.

Staples on the Cheba Hut menu include the Apaculpo Gold (grilled chicken breast, BBQ sauce, swiss cheese) and signature Jamaican Red, which looks like it might singe a spicy hole in your stomach (spicy chicken breast, green peppers, jalapenos, black olives, cheddar). The Kali Mist is a personal favorite among customers at the Cheba Hut for somewhat obvious reasons (roasted turkey breast, chipotle mayo, fresh jalapenos, bacon, pepper jack, avocado), and you can take this sandwich up a notch by substituting avocado for their homemade guac. This sandwich restaurant also offers a classic midwestern-style sub called the Midwest Best (roasted turkey breast, smoked ham, bacon, provolone).

The Cheba Hut Menu Includes Soups, Meatballs, Pretzel Bites, & More

Want to add something extra to your order? Cheba Hut also boasts a selection of salads, munchies, treats, and life-saving “cottonmouth cures” in the form of fountain drinks, Koolaid, and iced tea. Munchies include chips, soups, loaded not’chos, bowl o’ balls (meatballs), a hummus platter, pretzel bites, and garlic cheese bread. Finish off your meal at Cheba Hut with sweet treats like Rice Krispie bars, goo balls, brownies, and chocolate chip cookies.

Cheba Hut may be weed-focused, but that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t imbibe while you’re there, too. The Cheba Hut menu at the Chicago location will feature a full-service bar, including drinks like Bloody Mary Jane (Deep Eddy vodka, Cheba Bloody Mix, and “some stuff on a stick”), Dirty Hippie (Deep Eddy vodka, fresh cucumbers, lemonade), Hot Box (Deep Eddy Ruby Red Grapefruit vodka, jalapenos, ginger brew, lime juice), and Dad’s Spesh (bartender’s choice for $2).

Cheba Hut owners plan to commission local artists to create within the Chicago space, giving it a completely unique and Second City-centric theme. We’re really excited to see who they choose.

Cheba Hut will be located at 1739 N Milwaukee Ave in Bucktown, right across the street from Small Cheval. Bucktown parking is easier than ever with Chicago Parking Map. Check back in with UrbanMatter to find out the official opening date of this weed-friendly spot!
