Long John Silver’s is Officially OPEN in Lawton, Fort Sill!
It's been two long years but the wait is over. Long John Silver's in Lawton, Fort Sill has officially reopened! The glorious news broke over the weekend that LJS on the corner of N.W. Cache Rd. and 26th St. is BACK!
If you've been anywhere near the corner of N.W. Cache Road and 26th Street over the past few days, you've probably seen all the commotion and traffic. TONS of people are dining in and hitting the drive-thru at LJS.
Worth the wait! There were a lot of setbacks and all kinds of issues that delayed Long John Silver's from being reopened. One of the biggest was the COVID-19 pandemic. But now it's finally finished and OPEN!
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. Luckily for us they completely rebuilt, remodeled, and reopened 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.

The video now serves as a "Before" picture since it's been remodeled and reopened. It's located at 2636 N.W. Cache Road on the corner of 26th Street and Cache Road. Looking forward to stopping by for lunch or dinner.
