The project, which first opened in Belmont, North Carolina in 2016, is an homage to Kevin Jonas Sr.’s grandmother Nellie and her cooking—particularly her flaky, two-inch-thick biscuits.

The restaurant serves a menu packed with Southern classics. Its appetizers include fixings like fried okra, biscuits & gravy, and fried squash. Guests can choose from comfort-food entrees like chicken & waffles, Nellie’s Chicken & Dumplings, shrimp & grits, and meatloaf—or do “Nothin’ but Sides” (with choices like Drunk Collards, Roasted Cajun Potatoes, and Four Cheese Mac).

The menu also features a selection of burgers and sandwiches, including the Carolina Burger (with chili, slaw, onion, and mustard), the Hawg Hill Sandwich (Pecan-Smoked Pulled Pork or Smoked Portabellas, served with Coleslaw), and a Nashville Hot Chicken Sandwich.

Nellie’s will occupy an 11,000 sq.-ft. space across from the MGM Grand Garden Arena entrance. The restaurant is working toward an opening in the Spring 2022.
