Following word Ocean City, Maryland's Fractured Prune Doughnuts is bringing its made-to-order doughnuts to the retail corner of Flamingo and Ft. Apache comes news Southern California's Chronic Tacos is taking a second shot at a local expansion and will become their new neighbor.

The franchise has been a fixture at The Eatery, the Palms casino food court, since May 2013. Their original 2010 home at Summerlin's Village Center Circle lasted for three years.

The Spring Valley expansion will fill 2,422 square feet, taking over a vacant space and has committed an estimated $409,236 in construction costs. Each Chronic Tacos is designed with original "Day of The Dead" decor.

Now operating more than 30 locations, including stores in Utah, North Carolina and Arizona, Chronic Tacos' most famous license holder is actor, professional skater and Jackass star Jason Acuña, better known as "Wee Man." Acuña has helped bring celebrity buzz to the Palms location since opening day and will be returning on July 29 to host and compete in the sixth annual Gringo Bandito Chronic Tacos Eating Contest, billed as the "biggest taco eating contest in the world."

With a menu featuring tortas, taquitos, flautas, tacos and burritos, guests choose their own ingredients, earning the concept the nickname, "Mexican Subway." The Spring Valley location is promised to be "coming soon."
