Farm Basket, the nearly 40-year-old restaurant known for its fried chicken, plans to open a second location at Winterwood Pavilion at Sahara and Nellis avenues. The restaurant joins The Great Greek Mediterranean Grill and The Human Bean coffee shop as new tenants at the property with construction starting in early 2021.
Farm Basket and The Great Greek plan to reside in a free-standing building that will be constructed just to the east of Carl’s Jr. on the Nellis Avenue side of the property and The Human Bean will stand alone on east Sahara Avenue, according to leasing agent Dapper Cos.
The Bayne family bought Farm Basket in 2018 with the goal of keeping the vintage feel of the restaurant yet creating a modern diner with fried chicken and turkey dishes. Billy Bayne, Charlie Rodriguez, and Kerry Walters took over management of the company with hopes of expanding it from the original at Charleston and Jones boulevards to multiple locations across the city.
“Expanding to the east side of Las Vegas is an important next step for us,” Bayne says in a press statement. “The established neighborhoods that surround Winterwood are filled with customers who have grown up with Gobblers and Clucketos, staples of the Farm Basket menu.”
