The Eater Vegas reveal of Cracker Barrel finally arriving in Las Vegas struck a nerve among readers and news organizations who tripped over themselves to spread the word "down-home" dining was on its way to the Silverton hotel and casino.
New details give a better insight to the project and where it will actually sit. As reported, but ignored by local media, the restaurant and store will not be connected to the Silverton casino itself, but reside to the south of the property with its own parking.
The 9,113-square foot Cracker Barrel will land on a 40,179-square-foot section currently used to sell watercraft. The addition includes 95 new parking spaces added to this area.
New landscaping with trees like African Sumac and Afghan Pine surround the area, while the building will be designed with "Western character." The exterior will feature wood siding, wooden doors, metal roof accents and a chimney.
Inside, the space can fit 180 guests as well as the brand's ubiquitous general store. To make sure you won't miss it, a 40-foot high, 240-square-foot sign will be hoisted and on each side of the building, 91 small signs will be attached.
The project is working its way through the approvals process, with an expected late 2016 debut date.
