The Jerk Shack's newest location will open next summer.
Caribbean-inspired restaurant the Jerk Shack will open its third brick-and-mortar location in summer 2022 in downtown San Antonio’s redeveloped Hemisfair district.
Popular items from the original Jerk Shack, including Jamaican favorites braised oxtail and jerk chicken, will feature in the menu of the new spot. New to the mix will be an array of elevated, steakhouse-style items.
The downtown location will also be the first Jerk Shack to include a full bar and cocktail program.
The Hemisfair Jerk Shack marks the fourth restaurant opening for chef-owner Nicola Blaque. In addition to her flagship West Side location, she opened Caribbean-inspired Mi Roti in Pearl’s Bottling Department in July of 2020. The Jerk Shack’s second location at 10234 State Highwy 151 is set to open this summer.
Mi Roti executive chef Lionel “Butch” Blache will helm the Hemisfair location.
