I just had a really good experience with a shop. I went to Cooper Emissions shop over off of Rock in Sparks, and it was awesome. Several shops pointed me in the direction of Jim Smith for a carb tune up, and smog. This guys was able to figure out what was wrong with my 79 Bronco, fix it, and smog it all in an hour. He had the cheapest hourly rate I could find too.

If anyone is looking for some good carb work, quickly, and with a good shop rate, give Jim a call. He also owns Mooney's Automotive, and Im sure that shop is good too.
