Status: Certified Open

The former home of Firefly on Paradise Road gets new life as John Simmons' Imperial Tacos & Beer, serving up just what you would expect. Find 20 beers on tap and another 50 bottled varieties as well as 10 versions of tacos such as shrimp, veggie, pork al pastor and carne asada. Jicama salad, tamales, enchiladas and ceviche are just some of the other dishes that make the menu. Most items on the menu are less than $10.

The restaurant serves lunch daily from 11:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. and dinner from 5 p.m. to 2 a.m. daily.

The original Firefly was shut down last year after a salmonella outbreak caused by contaminated chorizo made 294 people ill. Firefly then moved north about half a block. Firefly again came under scrutiny this week when the Henderson location received 38 demerits, three away from shutdown by the Southern Nevada Health District. It's now back at an A grade with eight demerits, although three employees were fired.
