Chick-fil-A Near Las Vegas Strip Gets Opening Date

It’s possible we’ve mentioned Chick-fil-A a time or two in recent weeks. That’s because we’ve been waiting for years to unleash our pent-up lust for the chain’s glorious chicken sandwiches, and two Chick-fil-A locations are now crushing it in Las Vegas.

To be precise, though, the two existing Chick-fil-A locations aren’t exactly in Las Vegas. They’re in Henderson. That’s about to change, though.

A third Chick-fil-A opens March 30, 2017, just off The Strip on Sahara Blvd. at S. Rancho Drive. The new outpost sits just across the street from the Palace Station casino, not far from Lucky Dragon and SLS Las Vegas.

Do not make us choose between Chick-fil-A and saving an infant from a burning building. Infants can fend for themselves.

This new Chick-fil-A puts the restaurant within striking distance of The Strip, and it’s pretty much guaranteed to see the same crush of customers as the first two Las Vegas locations.

The third Chick-fil-A is expected to take some of the pressure off its sister locations. Both of the Henderson stores have been so busy, they’ve had to employ off-duty police officers to do crowd control since opening on Jan. 26, 2017.

Here’s another look at the third Chick-fil-A in Las Vegas.

Chick-fil-A plans to have 10 restaurants in Nevada over the next five years. So, grab the app, skip the pickles and join us as we bask in our Chick-fil-A euphoria.

And while you’re at it, please let us know how seriously we need to take this restraining order.

    Not surprised by the cops/traffic control for the new kid in town.

    When the first Sonic opened up here in Minnesota it was in a location that made traffic control a pain in the ass, as people wanted to line up their cars on the street while waiting to park and dine. (Who doesn’t want to sit in their idle car and eat?)

    So it required traffic control, a radio system and an overflow parking lot nearby to keep cars from clogging the Avenue upon which that first Sonic was built. There aren’t a ton of Sonics in the Twin Cities years later, but I don’t sense that you have a hard time parking at one when you do happen to pull in. Especially during January. This is Minnesota, after all.

    I will admit, I was surprised the demand for chicken was that great in The Meadows. It wasn’t that ridiculous here when the restaurants started opening a few years ago. Logic would tell you Vegas has far more transplants who have had to live without than you’d find in Minnesota.

      Traffic around Chick-Fil-A is just a way of life. I’ve driven past the local one at 7:30PM midweek and the line wraps around the building twice. If it they had not setup to enter from the shopping center behind it the lines would be out on the street.

    I’ve never forgiven them for their anti-gay marriage stance, even after they recanted.
