Fans had already been planning the 45-mile trip to Indian Springs to order an iconic Bob’s Big Boy burger and shake combination later this fall, but a new leasing document reveals a second Big Boy diner is now in the works and will be located much closer to home.
Yet to be officially announced or confirmed by landlord Remington Nevada or the Michigan-based restaurant company, a 3,000-square-foot Bob’s Big Boy has been confidently penciled into plans for “Pad J” at the Skye Canyon Marketplace, taking over a convenient end space, with plenty of room out front for one of the legendary grinning Big Boy statues.
The currently vacant building is also scheduled to host a Domino’s pizza outpost, a barbershop, Sally’s Beauty Supply, and three office tenants.
Estimating the restaurant could begin its 10-year lease next February, the retro roadside coffee shop franchise won’t have many opportunities to modify the exterior, but is expected to continue its 71-year tradition of booths and lunch-counter seating inside.
Famed for its namesake “double deck” burgers, thick old-fashioned milkshakes and a full menu of classic American dishes, Bob’s Big Boy is planning to debut inside the Terrible’s Indian Springs casino this November, a 29-mile drive to the northwest from this new location.
Also still under construction at the rapidly growing, Smiths-anchored retail center, newcomer Sakuraya Sushi, the Sky Tavern, the 19th local restaurant from China A Go Go, plus the Omelette Cafe from chef Ignazio Sessa, the operator of Omelet House on Rampart Boulevard in Summerlin.
