North Las Vegas restaurant scene grows as a number of developments progress
LAS VEGAS (KLAS) — The restaurant scene in North Las Vegas is booming as construction is underway on a number of developments on Craig Road and from North 5th Street to Bruce.
17 of the new developments are sit-down restaurants.
Steven Dunn is the Managing Partner of North Las Vegas Texas Roadhouse. He says he moved here from Washington State for more opportunities in 2018.
“There are great people in a very diverse community, I mean a great sense of neighbourliness,” he added.
Dunn also says people continue to move north from Las Vegas in record numbers, it’s a great place.
“You can see all the warehouses going up I-15, you can see the whole hallway, this whole Craig Road hallway, all these areas are booming,” Dunn told 8 News Now.
North Las Vegas Mayor John Lee has named a few restaurants to look forward to and are listed below.
- Restaurant and brasserie BJ’s
- Fly Pie Pizza
- panera bread
- Tavern born and bred
- dutch brothers
- olive garden
He tells 8 News Now that the list will continue to grow and more restaurants have already opened between I-15 and Clayton Street in recent years.
“I think people in North Las Vegas really like to eat out, they like variety, but more than that, they like to do it in their hometown,” Lee said. “The city you are looking at today will be the epicenter of economic industry in 5 years.”
Juan’s Flaming Fajitas will also open its first location north of Las Vegas.
