Cheeba Hut Rolls One for The Turkey Sandwich Report

I’m sorry that I couldn’t share all of the details with you in advance, but I took a meeting with Cheeba Hut today.  It was all really hush-hush, but they invited me up to Fort Collins to talk Turkey Sandwiches.

To be blunt, they were uber-impressed with my Turkey Sandwich knowledge and prowess.  So much in fact, that they wanted to get together and see if we could spark up some ideas.  And spark we did.  I gave them three solid ideas for sandwiches that they should add to the menu and from what I gather, they’re going to try them out at the Fort Collins location.  If all goes well, they could be rolled out nationally.

As for the meeting today, they were nice enough to treat me to a sandwich of my choice.  Being a Midwest kid, I went the Midwest’s Best.  It’s technically a Club Sandwich – ham, bacon and the like.  And I added some peppers and a little Ranch Dressing.

The Cheeba Hut guys also gave me a hit of White Widow.  I definitely specialize in Turkey Sandwiches, but this was a tasty chicken sandwich.  Good stuff.

All in all, the guys at Cheeba hut are good shit.  They’re really into firing up good sandwiches and good service.  PLUS they actually DO adequately TOAST their subs, unlike Quizno’s who keeps shortening their toast time so they can make the sandwiches faster.

There was one weird thing that happened at the end of the meeting: they asked if I wanted to “mow the grass”? First of all, they didn’t even have a lawn.  Second of all, their sandwiches are good and all and they’re nice guys, but I’m not not mowing their fucking lawn, no matter how many Turkey Sandwiches they give me.  Fuck that.

Cheba Hut is Smart

I was delightfully surprised to see that a representative from Cheba Hut left a comment on the Turkey Sandwich Report a couple days ago. Not only am I impressed that Cheba Hut is in touch with what people are saying about them on the internet, but I am double impressed with them being smart enough to ask me to help develop a new Turkey Sandwich.

Yes, you read that right. Cheba Hut has asked me to help develop a new Turkey Sandwich. I have responded to the Cheba Hut executives and told them that I would be interested in helping them build their Turkey Sandwich arsenal.

More to come on this as news becomes available.

When I Open a Sandwich Joint, it’s Gonna Be a Cheba Hut

I was faced with a really tough decision today. Pickle Barrel or Cheba Hut?

I was in Fort Collins, home of the Pickle Barrel (which Josh highly recommended) and Cheba Hut (which Rippe recommended). By no means am I saying that that Rippe is smarter, but I went with Cheba Hut. I was just really intrigued with their theme – which is apparently based on some kind of ancient peace pipe/smoking ritual.

Cheba Hut offers three sandwich size options:

  • Nug
  • Pinner
  • Blunt

I went with an Afgani Blunt because that’s how I roll. The Afgani is Turkey, Jalapenos, and Pepper Jack cheese. It looks disgusting, but it was actually a pretty dope. I ate half during lunch and saved the other half for my afternoon snack. The weird thing about this Turkey Sandwich is that I think I liked second half better after it had sat in my car for a couple hours.

And, BTW: get their house dressing. It’s a red wine vinaigrette and it’s DANK!
