LasVegasAdvisor reported June 13 on several of the closings/restaurant revamping at Boyd properties in Las Vegas, including Willy&Jose's at Sam's Town. In eating at the venerable Billy Bob's steak house on Wednesday night, we asked one of the long-time waiters if he knew what restaurant would be replacing the Mexican restaurant. He said it would be a 'high-end' steak house, also that Billy Bob's would be closing and replaced by a barbecue restaurant. Both new outlets would be Boyd restaurants, not chain outlets. The new steak house is slated to open mid-August. The wife and I have eaten more than our share of beef over the years at Billy Bob's, more times than not on a comp. If it does close, we'll miss the place.
