Glorious news, the Long John Silver's on N.W. Cache Road in Lawton, OK. will be reopening soon! If you've been near the corner of 26th Street and Cache Road lately you've probably seen all the construction.

It's been 2 long years in the making, but the wait is almost over for us to have Long John Silver's back in Lawton, Fort Sill. No official word yet as to when the grand opening will be but from the looks of it and as fast as they're getting it done, it'll be sometime this Summer! We're hoping so anyway. *Fingers Crossed*

In February 2020 a fire broke out that severely damaged the property and almost burned it to the ground. You can click here to read the story from KSWO. Ever since that time, it's sat empty and most thought it would never return. Now construction crews are completely rebuilding and remodeling the old Long John Silver's.

While it sat abandoned for the past couple of years, YouTuber WallieB26 did a video about the Lawton Long John Silver's. It shows the state of the building and how a few items, tables, and chairs were left behind. His channel and content contain creepy places and old buildings that have been shut down and shuttered up.

The video will serve as a "Before" picture once the place is remodeled and reopened and we compare it to the "After" photo. I can hardly wait to see what the new Long John Silver's will look like. The outside is coming along nicely and the inside will be completely redone. It'll be great having Long John Silver's back in town.

When it burned in 2020 it happened right during the middle of the Covid-19 pandemic so that really messed things up. There was really no way they could rebuild or remodel, or do much about the building itself until things improved. That would explain why it was abandoned and nothing was being done to fix it up until now.

Last month when construction crews began working on the property we weren't able to get 100% confirmation that it would be Long John Silver's. A lot of people kept saying it was going to be yet another dispensary, not a restaurant. Well, the sign is up and it's officially confirmed...LJS is back in Lawton, Fort Sill!

We'll keep you posted on the progress and as soon as we hear when the grand opening will be we'll pass it along. Also, if you're looking for a job they'll be hiring. You can all the details by visiting the official website. Once they're closer to reopening, the "Now Hiring"  section on the site will update to allow applications.
