A hidden favorite for truckers, locals and out-of-towners who discovered the industrial setting via the Food Network’s American Diner Revival show, SNS Diner submitted plans to the City of North Las Vegas to make a big move to a new location, just over one block away.

The Southern Nevada Smokehouse has been in operation at the combination truck stop and wash on 1100 E. Colton Avenue since 2014, offering traditional diner plates for breakfast and lunch and earning a loyal following for its revolving daily menu of on-site smoked meats, including turkey, bacon, ham, hotlinks, ribs, pulled pork, and brisket.

The proposed move will takeover a long vacant, 4,400-square-foot former McDonald’s drive-thru at 3229 Losee Road, across the street from Tacos El Gordo and a Denny’s.

Remodeling the interior and exterior and keeping the drive-thru option, the diner will continue its focus on families and the trucking community, and also add a 15-seat bar, with three seats at a walk-up outdoor window, plus a 600-square-foot patio and a 600-square-foot outdoor smoke yard, equipped with two professional-grade smokers.

Expected to be open daily from 5 a.m. to midnight, an estimated debut date has not been revealed, nor the fate of the original restaurant.
