NORTH LOOP — The highly-anticipated opening of the Smack Shack restaurant continues to be pushed back.

A recent peek at the planned 6th & Washington location revealed little, if any construction progress. Smack Shack owner Josh Thoma could not be reached, and general manager Jon Jacklin declined to comment.

A brick-and-mortar North Loop home for the popular food truck has been in the works for some time now. Originally slated to open in June, the conversion of the approximately 7,500 square-foot vacant warehouse into a 115-seat casual dining restaurant has been repeatedly delayed.

The Smack Shack food truck just wound down its third season in downtown Minneapolis. It parks on Marquette Avenue between 6th and 7th, where it features a delicious lobster roll and shrimp po-boy, along with a host of other creative seafood creations.

If you find yourself craving some Smack Shack during the winter months, the 1029 Bar, located at 1029 Marshall St. NE, will continue to serve the Smack Shack’s menu out of its kitchen. The kitchen is open at 10:45 a.m.-11 p.m. Tuesday-Thursday, 10:45 a.m.-midnight Friday-Saturday, and 10:45 a.m.-9 p.m. on Sundays. The kitchen is closed on Mondays.
