The last buffet on the Las Vegas Strip will soon temporarily shutter at the Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas and a national brand synonymous with help-yourself, all-you-can-eat dining is permanently closing one of its two local restaurants.
Arriving in July, 2018, five years after its northeast Las Vegas predecessor, Golden Corral has been closed at Henderson's Crossroads at Sunset retail center since March. While the company continues to announce “operations are temporarily suspended” at the intersection of Sunset Road and Stephanie Street, real estate broker Colliers International listed the 12,400-square-foot corner restaurant as available for immediate lease, with the opportunity to combine with an extra 4,890-square-foot property next door.
The national franchise has been hit hard by COVID-19, only returning to business at 1455 S. Lamb Boulevard, with a new, cafeteria-style set-up, plus daily to-go and delivery options for its family-focused, casual American menu. Before the pandemic, a planned Reno Golden Corral expansion had also been officially announced.
Colliers International also reveals Texas Roadhouse is headed to the center, a short walk across the parking lot from Golden Corral. Yet to begin construction on the 7,570-square-foot standalone building, this will be the second Henderson home for the casual steakhouse, recently hiring and now confirmed to be “coming soon” within sight of Costco, at the intersection of St. Rose Parkway and Amigo Street.
Texas Roadhouse very successful launched in North Las Vegas in late 2018. A possible debut date at the Crossroads at Sunset shopping center has not been made public.
