Jacksonville, Florida-based Metro Diner debuted its first Las Vegas expansion less than a month ago, but work has already begun on the second of three local outposts.
A previous star of Guy Fieri’s Food Network Show Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives, Metro Diner specializes in large portions of its highly regarded spin on comfort food and serving breakfast all day. For diner number two, the team will travel six miles southeast from their Spring Valley home at the corner of Tee Pee Lane and Tropicana Avenue and head over to the Rainbow Warm Springs Retail Plaza, taking over the prominent corner spot right on the corner of Rainbow Boulevard and Warm Springs Road.
Metro Diner will be the first tenant inside the brand new 3,451-square-foot space, featuring enough room for a maximum occupancy of 156 and the restaurant will be making using of the patio for outdoor dining. An estimated $550,000 has been allocated in construction costs to make over the interior and outdoor section.
Slightly larger than the original 3,402-square foot Spring Valley site, that location is open from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m. Sunday to Thursday until 9 p.m. on Friday and Saturday.
Promised to be "coming soon," despite building department permits being filed earlier this month, a timetable for a third Metro Diner on the way to Henderson has not been announced. The exact location is yet to be confirmed, but the local operators have revealed it will be built on Stephanie Street.
