Saddle up, Las Vegas. Move over, Bacchanal Buffet and Wicked Spoon. The first Golden Corral in Nevada is coming to Las Vegas' east side.??
The mystery of the oft-rumored, but never confirmed, arrival of the behemoth buffet chain known for its inexpensive steaks and seafood was ignited by a December 2012 online listing inviting offers to bid on construction of the 11,100-square-foot project.
An April 5 listing on CareerBuilder looking for a kitchen manager and restaurant manager further confirmed the rumor.?
Now comes word that construction will begin on the area's first Golden Corral in the next two months. "Construction on the Golden Corral restaurant will begin within the next two months near the intersection of Charleston Boulevard and Lamb Boulevard (across the street from the Walmart Neighborhood Market and behind the Home Depot). We anticipate that it will open in early fall."
Despite commercials for the franchise frequently running on local Las Vegas television channels, the closest Golden Corral to Las Vegas is in Kingman, Ariz., just over 100 miles away.
The family-style buffet restaurant chain contains a mix of 500 company-operated and franchise restaurants in 40 states.
