A major upgrade for the hidden North Las Vegas favorite

Hidden inside a combination truck stop and wash since 2014, SNS Diner is making a major move less than half a mile around the corner, headed into a much larger space equipped with a drive-thru and 600-square-foot outdoor smoke yard.

Despite its obscure North Las Vegas location, the Diner has managed to earn a loyal following for its traditional diner menu and the house specialty of barbecue meats, all slow-smoked on site.

Closing last month, fans, truckers, and locals will now have to wait a few more weeks until the Southern Nevada Smokehouse returns to action inside a former 4,400-square-foot McDonald’s restaurant.

Shuttering its original space last month, the new location at 3229 Losee Road will be easier to find, sitting across the street from Tacos El Gordo and a Denny’s. Paperwork filed last July revealed the remodeled interior will add a 15-seat bar, 600-square-foot patio, two professional-grade smokers, plus three seats at a walk-up outdoor window.

Achieving national attention with a makeover on the Food Network’s American Diner Revival TV show, SNS frequently updated it barbecue specials of turkey, bacon, ham, hotlinks, ribs, pulled pork, and brisket.

Originally expecting to be open daily from 5 a.m. to midnight, an estimated debut date has not been announced.
