Jefe's Original Soul Shack officially open in North Miami

North Miami gets a fresh taste of soul food this month as Jefe’s Original Soul Shack opens on Biscayne Boulevard after 19 months of permitting and construction delays. Bring on the fish tacos, burgers and salads.

Soul Shack owner Jack Garabedian started with a food truck and upgraded to the “chill” brick-and-mortar space said to echo the laid-back feel of the Baja, Calif., surfing community.

Dine in or take out Monday through Saturday from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. The Jefe’s food truck will remain on the road, check for schedules.
