Two Bob’s Big Boy diners area now confirmed to be on their way to Nevada, with one rapidly on track to be open within weeks and the second making a surprise move to add gambling and outdoor seating.
First uncovered back in April, a 4,598-square-foot Bob’s Big Boy restaurant is finalizing construction inside the Terrible’s Casino in Indian Springs, located at 225 E. Highway 95 N, approximately 40 minutes from downtown Las Vegas.
Penciled for a November debut, the venue is hosting a two-day job fair for all positions on October 13 and 14, seeking potential staff to “provide exceptional service and personalized experiences to every guest every time.”
Still to be officially announced, but now referenced on recent City of Las Vegas paperwork, the iconic diner is also expanding to the Skye Canyon Marketplace in Centennial Hills, moving into “pad J” alongside a Domino’s pizza outpost and non-dining tenants.
The new filing reveals the operators will be seeking permission to include 15 gaming machines on the countertops and also create room for an outdoor patio. Including video poker alongside a classic casual American menu is a rarity for the 71-year old brand.
An estimated debut timetable has not been disclosed, nor is a date set to request permission from the Nevada Gaming Control Board to install the machines. Across the parking lot from Big Boy, the under construction Sky Tavern will appear before the board later this month as it continues its journey to create a stand-alone gaming tavern.
