Nacho Daddy Rumored To Bring the Scorpion Shots to the Strip

No, not at the Grand Bazaar Shops either.

Fun loving Nacho Daddy already has three locations in Las Vegas, although the restaurant on Eastern Avenue will close to make way for a Chick-fil-A in late 2016 or early 2017. Now a new rumor points to a location on the Strip for the Tony Hsieh-backed casual restaurant chain and a former Zappos employee favorite.

The restaurant is rumored to move into the Miracle Mile Shops, right next door to the new Buffalo Wild Wings that just opened this fall.

Nacho Daddy just turned five, opening its first location in Henderson in 2010, followed by Nacho Daddy Downtown in 2013 and Nacho Daddy on West Sahara Avenue in 2014. Since opening, the restaurant has served up 23,500 scorpions in its world-famous scorpion shots. Nacho Daddy features 15 different nachos, and about 20 percent of Nacho Daddy’s yearly business comes from nacho sales.

Nacho Daddy was rumored to head to the Grand Bazaar Shops in front of Bally’s Las Vegas, but that space is now filled with a Starbucks with an outpost of Lindbergh Men’s Warehouse above it.

The Miracle Mile Shops has been busy filling spaces along Harmon Avenue. Texas Land & Cattle Steakhouse from the Dallas-based Day Star Restaurant Group takes over the former Todai restaurant space. The company that owns both Texas Land and the Lone Star Steakhouse chain operates 26 restaurants in Texas, Arkansas, Missouri, New Mexico and North Carolina under the Texas Land brand.
