Originally planned to stay open until late 2016, Nacho Daddy has quietly shuttered their original location at Henderson's Diamond Summit Plaza, a locals' favorite since December 2010.
The entire building will be demolished to make way for one of two highly anticipated Chick-fil-A restaurants headed to the neighborhood. Both will debut in 2017, with a third also set to arrive around the same time at the corner of Rancho and Sahara within easy walking distance from the Palace Station casino and hotel.
Work has already begin on both locations, featuring enough indoor seating for 122 guests, plus outdoor patios, indoor playgrounds and a drive-thru service. The second Henderson home is slated for Stephanie and Warm Springs and matching the company's more than 2,000 locations, the trio will not be serving their famous chicken sandwiches on Sundays.
Unlike Henderson, their west side location is currently an empty lot and does not require any on-site demolition work. The three openings are part of an "8-10 restaurant" restaurant expansion in Nevada over the next five years.
Nacho Daddy's Henderson home included Zappos CEO Tony Hsieh as a silent partner and became a popular destination for his staff when the online shoe retailer was located in Henderson. Nacho Daddy still operates downtown and in Summerlin and will make a leap to The Strip later this year.
Nacho Daddy CEO and co-founder Paul Hymas had announced the company was looking for another Henderson home, but they are currently informing guests via Facebook, "unfortunately we do not have a date on opening a Henderson location."
