Farm Basket was once a major Las Vegas mainstay, with its tasty takes on chicken and turkey being served up at twelve locations—and then it fell on rough times. The twelve locations slowly began to dwindle. Eventually, there was only one, the current one on Charleston Blvd.
It was at this point that the brand was purchased by owner William Bayne, with an eye to expanding the brand. To that end, paperwork was recently submitted for construction to begin, after some delay, on Farm Basket’s second location at 2340 S Nellis Blvd. The estimated budget for construction comes in at $287,000.
Farm Basket offers a number of different approaches to the classic chicken and turkey. Its menu is built in large part around two branded sandwiches: the Clucker Sandwich, with fried chicken, and the Gobbler Sandwich, with fried turkey. Alongside these branded items are Farm Basket’s crafty chicken-stuffed tacos, called Clucketos. The menu also offers hearty meals like Chicken and Waffles and the Turkey Steak Dinner, plus several big fried chicken combos to feed the whole family.
The Nellis location is situated near the intersection with E Sahara Ave, not far from Winterwood Pavilion. Other eateries to be found nearby include Mr. Mario’s Tacos and Panda Express.
Following the second location, whose new, post-delay opening date has yet to be revealed, further locations are expected to open. Bayne told What Now Las Vegas last October that a third location was in negotiations at that time, with tentative plans being worked out for the fourth, so stay tuned for more updates on this Las Vegas legacy brand.
