Pink Taco Taste Testing

Yes, they really did name a restaurant 'Pink Taco.' I try pretty hard to avoid establishments that meet the following criteria:
  • are lame
  • have table service
Though flagged as both 'lame' and 'serious about service' the Pink Taco somehow made it into Burrito Blog.
With locations in Los Angeles, CA, Scottsdale, AZ, and Las Vegas Nevada, the Pink Taco appears to be a legitimate restaurant. The even serve food, evidenced by the ridiculous, sparkling menu.

Chicago's Junior Burrito Analyst Ethan and I met up at the Pink Taco in the Hard Rock Hotel in Las Vegas for a snack before the inevitable mess that being a bachelor party attendee would bring. He swore that someone wanted to make the Cardinals play in Pink Taco Stadium. The kid doesn't lie.

We both got the house special, the panuchos, a.k.a. Pink Tacos. Hey, when in Rome.

According to the menu on the official site, panuchos are corn tortillas stuffed with beans and topped with grilled chicken, salsa roja, pickled onions, and avocado. Served with rice and beans on the side, three panuchos go for $8.50.

Pickled onions. That's the pink stuff.

They were worth the money for sure, but half the draw of the restaurant is absurd ambiance, which Burrito Blog conveys poorly. Ethan didn't like the pink onions, and I had a problem with their single tortilla tacos. Come on, don't skimp me on the cheapest part of the meal. Legit tacos have two tortillas.

Fans of Chili's and Hooters, you'll probably love this place.
