Earlier this year, Landry’s Inc. shuttered its westside Claim Jumper restaurant to make way for an under-construction Chick-fil-A. Proving there were no hard feelings, the chicken sandwich kings are now confirmed to be moving into Landry’s Golden Nugget resort on downtown’s Fremont Street.
Officially announced by the property and aiming for a winter debut, Chick-fil-A will take over existing, in-use casino space in the Carson Tower, a short distance from the Nugget’s 24-hour, five-year-old Claim Jumper.
Yet to be revealed, Landry’s own Saltgrass Steak House restaurant is also on the way, a 6,180-square-foot addition to the chain’s more than 80 locations, serving chicken, seafood, chargrilled beef, and 10-hour, slow roasted prime rib. The restaurant expanded to the Golden Nugget Laughlin back in 2010.
In Las Vegas, the resort already hosts the more upmarket Vic & Anthony’s Steakhouse, a warmly lit dining fixture since 2006.
Also contained in recent permit filings, applications to build a new food court, currently keeping potential tenant identities under wraps.
