A couple of casual dining closures at the Flamingo Commercial Center have claimed a familiar local name. Located right at the corner of Flamingo and Ft. Apache roads, Chronic Tacos’ second attempt to expand to the suburbs has recently shuttered, following a little over year of service in its corner spot.
A success at the Palms casino’s Eatery food court since 2012, the Newport Beach, California, concept first expanded to Summerlin in 2010 before closing after three years. Featuring a Day of The Dead-inspired interior, the 2,422-square-foot, Spring Valley site had hoped the addition of a full bar would bolster its fast-casual menu of burritos, tostada bowls, salads, tacos, and quesadillas.
Chronic Tacos still operates at the Palms resort and at two counters inside the T-Mobile Arena.
A short walk to the west, Jumping Rice & Rolls has also closed, after almost three years of serving spicy fried rice, dragon rolls, and sushi. The space has quickly been taken over by new venture, Kokoro Ramen.
Other close neighbors still in business include Fractured Prune Doughnuts and Rolled Ice Cream.
