While the restaurant was never close to capacity on our visits and its location at the back of the LVC had to be challenging in luring traffic for a hotel whose rooms were primarily open only weekends, we'd always hoped solid food and service at a good value would keep Tinoco's alive.
VegasChatter is trying to track down whether Tinoco's closure is part of a planned, but still yet to be announced Las Vegas Club renovation. In reaction to the news, we'd suggested visiting the original location, but that appears to have closed long ago after the LVC location opened. Oops.
Adding to the are they or aren't they chatter, Pokeraddict reports the hotel was closed over the weekend of May 12 while several video poker and slot machines have been relocated or removed altogether. He describes the back of the casino as completely deserted. No word on where the lobster claw tank game ended.
Hopefully, this all points to further evidence of a Las Vegas Club makeover which could leave hope for Tinoco's fans. In the meantime, LVC patrons (Bueller?) looking for a bite will most likely be directed to options at sister property, Plaza.
