Sugar “Ray” and Judy Metz have owned and operated “Sugars” for over 25 years. In that time, they have watched families grow and expand. Many of their customers today are the children and grandchildren of their first customers in 1991. Their youngest born, Rick, is a graduate of Moapa Valley High School, while their granddaughter, Kayla, is a graduate of Virgin Valley High School.
Sugar formed Sugar’s Golf Club based at Sugars Homeplate soon after opening the restaurant. In the next few years, Sugar Ray and Chuck Hackleman co-founded the Palms Men’s Golf Association, which would later become the Mesquite Men’s Golf Association. The family’s love of golf has led them to sponsor both MVHS and VVHS golf teams along with multiple charity tournaments.
The restaurant shares a wealth of varied sports memorabilia from pennants and posters to jerseys, bats and many other collectibles.
The very best thing they offer is a delicious and varied menu. Breakfast, Lunch and dinner is served all day Tuesdays through Sundays. They take pride in their specials, some of which are their mothers’ original recipes. They are happy to substitute ingredients in recipes to accommodate your special dietary needs. In this day of ‘gluten free, fat free and low carb,’ they offer many substitutions to please their customers.
Through the years when not working, Sugar has filled his days with golf and coaching his son’s teams. Judy has filled her free time with being on various committees and boards to help the community, including the Moapa Valley Fire District, Volunteer EMT at Station 74, Moapa Valley Town Advisory Board, Clark County Multiple Species Habitat Conservation Plan, Mesquite Resort Association, Mesa View Hospital Steering Committee, Moapa Valley Strategic Planning Committee, and the Overton Power District Board.
