More fantastic news for the town of Phoebus! The owners and creative masterminds behind the perfect taco plan to open a restaurant this coming Fall. With the building located beside Victorian Station in Phoebus at 24 N. Mallory Street, this will be their first restaurant venture. The partners plan to completely renovate the 5,000 square-foot building adding multiple windows, an indoor raised stage, a retail space and an inside/outside patio featuring roll-up windows.
Due to the continuous success of Stuft, Not Your Average Street Food, the Haas’ brothers decided the time was right to expand. Casey, 33 and Alex, 29 will team up with close friend Moriah DeVito, the general manager at The Point at Phoebus to ensure a successful, long-term endeavor.
Although we have seen a recent increase in popularity of the food truck trend, Stuft has been around (and a locals’ favorite) since 2011, offering from-scratch Mexican inspired food and great customer service. Not only is the experience about the perfect taco, it’s about the big, bright smiles you can always guarantee from Casey and Alex.
Customers will still be able to get the always popular tacos, burritos, quesadillas and rice bowls. Guests can also look forward to new items on the menu such as pork rind encrusted chicken thighs on a waffled glazed donut, crazy egg rolls and deep fried bacon-wrapped hot dogs.
The restaurant will have a full bar with 12 taps, liquor and wine. If you’re a fan of the taco truck, don’t fret. Stuft, Not Your Average Street Food will still be out and about serving up their delicious signature items.

More big news for the city of Hampton! The town of Phoebus is excited to welcome Hampton Roads’ first hard cidery. Two brothers with deep roots in the community plan to invest more than half a million dollars to open the cidery.
Tim and Doug Smith will launch Sly Clyde Ciderworks on 1.3 acres of family-owned property with plans to turn the two-story historic house next to the closed Smith Floragift building into a tasting room. There will also be a small apple orchard on the property.
The new establishment will create seven new jobs and purchase all of its apples from Virginia farmers. Sly Clyde Ciderworks plans to distribute their cider to restaurants throughout the region. The brothers are optimistic for a November opening.
