Got the munchies? Cannabis-themed Cheba Hut sandwich shop coming to Baton Rouge in March
quote:

Cheba Hut has been curing diners' munchies since 1998. Now Tommy and Meredith Wiggins are hoping to cure Baton Rouge's munchies by opening the first Louisiana franchise of the marijuana-themed sandwich shop in Baton Rouge. But the shop won't open until March 2021, at 411 Ben Hur Road near LSU. And though Cheba Hut is unapologetically cannabis-themed, the Wiggins said it's just that — a theme. "There will be no marijuana in the sandwiches or in any of the food," Meredith Wiggins said. "It's just the theme, and it's the theme that gets the customers in there. The food keeps them coming back."


quote:

The Ben Hur Road shop will be the first of three in the Baton Rouge area. The others will open within the next five years, and the Wiggins are looking to expand to Lafayette and Hammond after that.


quote:

Cheba Hut is different from other sandwich shops in that it will have a full bar, featuring craft beer from local breweries. Sandwiches are made daily with fresh ingredients on artisan bread with meat and vegetarian options. Also, individual stores also offer locally created menu items.


Anyone ever been to one of these before? Sounds pretty interesting with it having a full bar, will definitely check out.

Leave it to Louisiana to have the food that makes you fat be available before the plant that makes you desire it legal.

They are all over up here, probably originated here. It’s alright. It’s a sandwich shop Not much special about it other than names of things. Goo balls are pretty good.

Think they were based out of Denver

They just opened a location here in Austin. Haven’t been yet but I hear it’s great for what it is.

Ate it while living in Arizona. Very good sandwich place. I actually looked into franchising one a few years ago here in BR then I realized I was a teacher, had no money, and no restaurant experience haha.

I grubbed at the downtown Denver location several years ago.

I was blazed out of my mind so I would have destroyed any food. The sandwich did not dissapoint.

I thought this place was going to be like Fat Shack. Hit the Ft. Collins location a few years ago...it’s a much less healthy menu

I don’t know why I was picturing stuff like you see at Pops Poboys or Turkey and the Wolf. This is more deli sub style ingredients.

Looks good for what it is though. The catchy theme will definitely help too.

Started in Arizona, in Tempe near ASU I think. I haven't been to Cheba Hut in like 15 years, but back when I lived on the east side of Phoenix I went a few times and they were very solid. Not really worth going crazy out of my way for, but definitely a step above most of the regular chain places such as Jimmy John's and the like.
