Part of HalfSmoke

HalfSmoke fills the void for a premium offering of one of America’s longstanding favorite foods, the sausage, which is the 3rd most consumed item in America. Our sausages and toppings can be fully customized to create over 50,000 variations of food that’s fun, fanatical and full of flavor. The menu also features bottomless brunch, funnel cakes, milkshakes, craft beer, wine and specialty cocktails via a full bar.

All of our items are all-natural, hormone and antibiotic-free and we strive to use the freshest premium ingredients available. HalfSmoke is well positioned to become a compelling lifestyle brand and can help to pioneer the creation of a new category of “fun casual restaurants”. Fun casual couples the ease, value and convenience of fast casual restaurants with the high standards of thoughtful ingredient sourcing, chef inspired preparation & cooking, in a welcoming restaurant design that’s typically associated with “destination” restaurants where customers seek not only good food but an entertaining experience.
