Lumberjacks — ‘Where the Big Boys Eat’ — hiring for North Las Vegas location


Aida Ahmed

California-based diner Lumberjacks Restaurant has built its first Nevada location at 965 W. Craig Road in North Las Vegas.

A new restaurant with a rustic theme is getting ready to open in North Las Vegas.

But first Lumberjacks Restaurant, at 965 W. Craig Road, has to fill about 70 new positions.

The North Las Vegas Lumberjacks will be the California-based diner’s first location in Nevada.

The restaurant is built to look like a log cabin inside and out, and a 12-foot lumberjack statue holding an ax greets customers as they walk to the door. Lumberjacks bills itself as “Where the Big Boys Eat.”

The family-style breakfast, lunch and dinner “portions are huge and very reasonably priced,” said owner Scott Bailey. An online menu for Lumberjacks restaurants in California shows dinners priced below $20; “2 hand sandwiches” and most burgers cost less than $10 and most breakfast plates are less than $10. A seniors’ menu and children’s menu also are offered.

The diner specializes in pancakes, or as lumberjacks would call them, “flapjacks.”

Bailey said he’s excited about the North Las Vegas location and plans to hire about 70 people at a job fair next week. The restaurant, he said, is looking to hire bussers, hostesses, the wait staff, a full kitchen staff and supervisors.

The hiring fair will be from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Wednesday and 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Thursday at the restaurant. Applicants will be able to interview on the spot anytime during the fair, Bailey said.

Lumberjacks will open in the next couple of months, Bailey said, after hiring is completed.

  1. I don't know why I waited a year to eat at this restaurant other than the fact that I live in Henderson. Great food, reasonably priced with a friendly atmosphere! Henderson needs a restaurant like this!
