LAS VEGAS (KRON) — A favorite Oakland restaurant will soon be available in Las Vegas. The Las Vegas Review-Journal reported that Kowbird will open a branch in a new food hall that is coming to Southwest Las Vegas, roughly eight miles southwest of the strip.

Kowbird is located at 1733 Peralta Street in West Oakland. It is owned by Chef Matt Horn, who also owns renowned barbecue restaurant Horn BBQ blocks away from Kowbird.

“I’m looking forward to coming out there and making a splash in Vegas,” Horn told the Review-Journal. “I think Vegas allows us to do a bit more and be a bit more creative and have a bit more fun.”

Kowbird specializes in chicken, selling chicken sandwiches, tenders, wings and “bird fries,” which consist of chopped chicken and other toppings on a bed of fries. The Review-Journal said to expect a Korean fried chicken sandwich, chicken and waffles, and a smoked barbecue fried chicken sandwich.
