Mathew Meininger of Nampa, who has owned a Nampa Sinclair Gusher gas station for 31 years, has opened a specialty food hut on the property.
The Grub Hut, on the corner of 3rd Avenue South and eastbound Nampa-Caldwell Boulevard, sells food prepared with vegan, gluten-free, low-carb and/or paleo recipes.
The fast-food hut is open 7 a.m. to 2 p.m. Monday through Friday with a menu that includes typical lunch items such as wraps, salads, soups and snacks.
The hut also serves teas, smoothies and oatmeal.
Never miss a local story.
Cheryl Richard, restaurant consultant for the Grub Hut, said the food hut serves a diet that is increasingly common but hard to find at restaurants in Canyon County.
“We are the only restaurant I know of that uses no dairy, sugar, flour in our food,” she said.
