The Chief Smokehouse has been serving burgers and hand scooped milkshakes for over 3 generations. The name has changed but the perfect burger and shakes are a constant. It is not uncommon for our customers to reminese about their grandparents bringing them here 40 years ago. As in the past our hambugers
are made with local bought beef ground daily and our ice cream comes from local daries.
In 2006 Jeff and Gwen Stewart purchased the Chief. Jeff, a Texas native and long time Mendocino resident, wanted to bring Texas BBQ and good food to Mendocino county.
After buying the Chief Smokehouse Jeff added Texas style BBQ to the menu.
