This past weekend, Chef Shack Ranch—the upcoming Seward brick n' mortar from the owners of the eponymous food truck—ran a very quiet friends and family trial-run from Friday to Sunday. According to the Chef Shack Facebook page, they served up menu items like bison burgers and curry chicken with rice, as well as their beloved mini-donuts, which were free from 2-3 p.m. on Sunday (the giveaway was announced in advance on Facebook). A weekend visitor posted this photo of the space on Facebook.
Eater spoke to owners Carrie Summer and Lisa Carlson who said they are taking their time to make sure everything is running smoothly while they wait for their liquor license. And mini-donut-lovers, take note: there might well be another friends-and-family event this upcoming weekend. Keep an eye on the Chef Shack Facebook and Twitter for details.
