Grateful Shed Truckyard features three Madison area food businesses: Tavernakaya, making "unrolled" sushi; Pasqual's Cantina, with street tacos and a chocolate-dipped churro cookie; and Melted, a grilled cheese food truck that makes smashburgers and a grilled cheese version of a Chicago-style hot dog.

The Shed’s design blends pop culture with an open, backyard barbecue feel. Daniel Marsich installed VHS tapes with visible titles wrapping around the base of the bar, and elevated above it is a vintage Greyhound bus. Patrons are encouraged to stay, hang out, do work with the free wifi and hold meetings there. There's music and lawn games, too.
