Oodles of Zoodles
Portion Control makes clean eating fun with their Bang Bang Chicken, made with fresh and zesty zucchini noodles tossed with lots of stir-fry veggies, grilled chicken, fresh ginger, garlic, and other spices, and finished with house-made firecracker sauce. Not too spicy, but wonderfully lathered in a delicious sauce. This would go well with a side order of brown rice. All dishes at Portion Control are freshly-prepared, preservative and additive free, non-GMO meals made with balance, nutrition, and convenience in mind. Now open in Las Vegas and Henderson.

Tacos explode Downtown
Could we ask for a better name for a taco joint?

Go for the al pastor, grilled chicken, and cauliflower tacos, along with hashtag fries and burritos, and enjoy these within a whimsical setting adorned by hand-painted murals, art, and colorful tables and chairs. His two locations include the newly opened downtown spot on Carson as well as the S. Durango original. Boom!

Blood, Sand, & Fire
The inspiration for The Barrymore’s Blood, Sand, & Fire came from the scotch itself. Scotch and smoke have a natural tendency to complement each other, and while in the smoker, the smoke bonds to the spirit both in flavor and aromatics. It deepens the flavor of the cocktail and provides a fun visual experience at the same time.
