Smack Shack

Food + Beverage

Smack Shack was launched as a food truck in 2010 serving lobster rolls from a land-locked downtown Minneapolis parking lot. Owner Josh Thoma had a great recipe and a belief that appetite for fresh lobster in the Twin Cities was as strong as any coastal city. In November 2011, Guy Fieri featured the truck and the lobster broil at The 1029 Bar in Northeast Minneapolis (where they still serve today) in The Food Network’s “Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives”. Smack Shack is committed to serving sustainable seafood and is a current partner in the Minnesota Zoo’s Fish Smart program. Sunday Funday has a new home at Smack Shack with Boogie Down Brunch! Imbibe on Bottomless Mimosas or our creatively delicious Brunch Eye Openers (shooters) like the Pancake Breakfast or the Loop D Loop. Boogie Down Brunch is every Sunday from 11am-3pm at both Bloomington and North Loop locations. Visit our website to make a reservation!
