The SNHD wesite shows Alberto's was shut down and then later reopened with a satisfactory grade.
Back in the beginning of May we reported that Alberto's Restaurant received a grade of "C" with 21 demerits on April 11th (2014). See the article here.
Since that time, two reinspections occurred with one of them apparently resulting in the SNHD closing the restaurant down.
Update: Pictures of the inspection at Alberto's below were on the Las Vegas Action 13 Dirty Dining Report*. They show a disgusting display of grease and food debris that must of taken a long time to accumulate. This was much worse than we expected to see.

Then on 5/23/14 they were inspected again and received an A rating with just 6 demerits, which must have allowed them to remain open.
The six demerits were related to protecting food from potential contamination and effective pest control measures/animals restricted as required.
A local favorite spot, we hope the results of this adequate new inspection will continue or be improved upon by the owners, staff, and management of Alberto's.
We did notice that on their front window they now have the certificate with the A grade displayed.
Alberto's is not on Casino Drive. It is located in upper Laughlin in the Town Center business and shopping complex.
