Marijuana-themed joint Cheba Hut comes to Orlando not far from UCF

Cheba Hut is expected to open in July in a 2,200-square-foot space at 12100 E. Colonial Drive.

A restaurant chain offering sandwiches named after cannabis strains like “kush” and “Acapulco gold” and offering up “munchies” for weed enthusiasts is set to come to Orlando.

Cheba Hut is expected to open in July in a 2,200-square-foot space at 12100 E. Colonial Drive, not far from the University of Central Florida.

The chain has locations across the country, including in St. Augustine, and a deal is in place for three restaurants to open in Orlando. Other locations are eyed for downtown Orlando and even closer to UCF.

There’s a “munchies” section of the restaurant’s online menu that includes garlic cheese bread, pretzel nuggets and chips. There’s also a “treats” section with brownies and a “Rice Krispie Bar," made with cereal wrapped in “marsh-mellow goodness,” which also sounds like it might count as a munchie.

Chocolate chip cookies weren’t left out, either.

The “kush” sandwich features bacon, mayonnaise, tomatoes, house dressing and provolone. The “Acapulco gold” has grilled chicken breast topped with barbecue sauce and swiss.

Sandwiches also come in sizes with weed designations: a 4-inch “nug,” an 8-inch “pinner” and a 12-inch “blunt," a spokesperson for the company wrote in an email.

The new joint will have a full bar, with cocktails named from weed culture like the “Dirty Hippie,” which is made with Deep Eddy vodka, muddled cucumbers and lemonade as well as the “Hot Box” made with Deep Eddy Ruby Red grapefruit vodka, jalapenos, ginger brew and lime juice.

Some drink offerings are listed under a section called “Cottonmouth Cures” and include Kool-Aid and energy drinks.
