Physical proof the forever rumored Golden Corral is almost ready to launch. The signs announce a "Countdown to Happiness" as their "world's newest" family-style buffet restaurant is adding their finishing touches.

Signage, windows and most of the parking lot are ready for action. Inside, the host station and all carpets are in place, but still missing are booths, tables and chairs. While the company vaguely promises an unidentified December debut, on the Golden Corral Careers Facebook page a new employee has announced a Dec. 12 opening date.

In the works since July 2012, the 11,088-square-foot restaurant is the first for the chain in Nevada, the true home of the all you can eat buffet. Operating in nearly 500 other locations in 40 states, Golden Corral is ubiquitous to Las Vegans for their frequent commercials on local TV stations. The next closest location is in Kingman, Ariz., just over 100 miles away.
