A word from Pink Taco @ Hard Rock Hotel & Casino
Pink Taco is popular for putting a California spin on traditional Mexican dishes. The menu includes the trademark Pink Taco (Panuchos) with homemade corn tortillas, beans, chicken, salsa roja, pickled onions and avocado. For something lighter, there"s the Tostada Salad − a shredded salad with chipotle vinaigrette that is a Pink Taco favorite. For a sweet finale to a spicy meal, Pink Taco offers Cinnamon Churros – dusted with cinnamon sugar and chocolate cream. A mega-hip Mexican cantina, Pink Taco is a folk-art bedecked hotspot adorned with classic low-rider bicycles, unique tables that leave guests' feet dangling and an assortment of authentic Mexican craftwork that decorate the dining room. The atmosphere includes music that's pumped up loud with dining also out on the patio as an alternative.

    My mom & I needed an early morning Sunday brunch in Vegas...to our surprise, there was one right in our hotel! The Pink Taco opened at 9am!! Their brunch was a little unconventional...$24.99 for all the menu items you could eat! Everything was made fresh to order & was served super quick!

    Very cool place. I love all the skulls and skeletons (De La Muerte). They have a patio overlooking the pool area. The food is hit or miss. I wasn't impressed with their ceviche but i enjoyed my taquitos though. I don't mind coming back to try their other dishes.

    We were a group of 6 and decided to go for breakfast on a Sunday morning. We did not pick the All-YOu-Can-Eat, as we were not that hungry. At the end we all ordered two plates and were pleased. Good food at moderate prices. Server was very nice and friendly. Will come again.

    This was our first time. We had tickets to The Joint so we thought we would check it out. The Ceviche was awesome! The food and drinks were good..nothing special. The complementary chips were greasy :( you could see it them. We were seated on the patio and it was pretty load from pool. Came in for the Happy Hour specials but didn't know till we were already seated that they were only available in the bar :(

    Our stay at the Hard Rock Hotel in Vegas is always fun, especially when we choose our meals to be at the "Pink Taco". We ate there 3 days in a row !!! 2 Dinners & 1 Lunch. The ambiance is fun & energetic, fun themed restaurant lots to look at. We sat outside in the patio area which gave us a fun view of the pool area. The food is good, especially the appetizer; 3 skewers ; Chicken, steak & shrimp. with delicious sauce not bad at $14.00 which to me was a full meal. Their Tacos are of course yummy as well. Drinks are good and strong. service is good as well. Its just a fun hip place to eat and we seem to return every year! Its one of our favorite hot spots to eat & drink.

    A group of girlfriends and I had brunch at the Pink Taco before hitting Rehab pool party. Loved the bottomless mimosas and the food was great. A bit dark in the restaurant, kind of made us a bit tired even though it was only noon but otherwise the ambiance was fun and the staff were all very friendly and fun.

    Came here on a recommendation but our experience was not great. The food was "ok" but nothing special and I have had much better. However it was the service which was well below par. First problem was the menu. The menu stated wine was available but when we ask for a specific bottle we were told wine is no longer available. The waitress went to check and came back to say that they could only offer red or white?? When I asked what was the red wine they had, she said Red!!! Then, we asked for some water, the waitress came back with plastic cups. we had to wait 35 minutes for our meal and then only because we noticed other people who came in after us get theirs well before us. It was obvious we had been forgotten. Very poor service.

    Ordered carne asada well done. When the food came the steak was rare, the waitress was kind enough to return plate to kitchen to have it cooked a little longer. In the process of doing so, she picked up place and utensils. The steak was eventually returned by a different employee with no utensils. Did not see the waitress to ask for utensils until she came by the leave check and run. She did not pause to ask if how the meal was or we needed anything else. Pink Taco is not a restaurant you will want to visit if you want service.

    Not so great for brunch. Pink Taco has an all you can eat brunch for $24.99. My husband and I dined on July 6, 2014. I would recommend ordering all of your food all at once or you be waiting for hours for your food. We received horrible service from Kasey M. Kasey brought out corn torilllas one at time. A few means more that one. The bill came to $92 dollars and some change. Kasey decided to split the check, not sure why she did that. A blonde hair female manger came by with the final bill for $12.01, not sure where the math went wrong. Must be a coporate change. My husband and I have dining credit for $90.00. Even though the service was bad, we left a generous tip for her. It's unforunate for this resataurant to lose us.

    For a Vegas brunch it is a let down. I've seen more items during Happy Hour at El Torito. Not even close to worth the price. They have the essentials, rice, beans, eggs, etc., but it isn't worth more than $9.99 - $14.99 per person. Instead they are charging into the $24.99 + another $9.99 for bottomless Mimossa's. The annoying part was that they advertising some lobster quesadillas and a bunch of other higher end items that they didn't have. I decided to order from the regular menu instead of going for the brunch. My food came to me in less than 5 minutes. It actually came out at the exact same time as the glass of water that I asked for. The food was good for a fast food restaurant (assuming that's what they were going for).

    We were going to a show at the Joint and decided Pink Taco would be a good place to grab a bite before the show. For a hotel the prices are just fine. My wife had the Chile Verde and that was very good. The carnitas burrito was ok.

    Went to get dinner before seeing a concert at Hard Rock. Service was EXTREMELY slow - waitress managed to switch one of our drinks with another tables. When she finally came back, and we told her .. she started laughing and said she gave ours to the other table and walked off to grab it, although eventually she brought a new one over. Margaritas weren't consistent tasting. Food took forever to come, and was pretty average Mexican/tacos. We ordered some premo tequila shots ($20/ea), and had to ask her 3 TIMES to get them. We wanted to stay and have another drink, but glad we didn't - once the check came, we barely had time to wait for her to run the card so we could sprint over to The Joint to see the show. Will not be returning.

    I live locally and made a reservation for 6:45. When I arrived, the hostess looked at me like I had three heads. It took several minutes for our server to bring chips and salsa and take our drink order. When our first round came, we placed an order for the trio skewers appetizer and our entrees. Less than 5 minutes from the time the appetizer arrived, the entrees were brought out as well. We were never offered more chips and salsa and it took another ten minutes to place another drink order. My wife's shrimp tacos were fine, but they brought me the wrong order (it was also served in a violently hot sauce I was not expecting as well). My correct order came out after my wife had finished her food. Bottom line - good food, bad service.

  • really 'average' mexican food
    ElevatedTASTE
    Dined on 5/12/2014
    The food is well presented, but lacks the elegance you'd want to expect from a sit-down restaurant 50 feet from Nobu. I had 'food truck' expectations, but this was very much average. The Tuna tacos had textures and temperatures that were all over the place. The guacamole was too salty and the pitcher of margaritas was cheaply executed with little to no alcohol. You can't really mess up mexican food, but there's nothing memorable about this place that brings me back wanting anything that was served. The music was too loud and our booth 'hybrid' / stool concept had us sitting 4 feet off the floor. It was uncomfortable all the way around. Next time I'll just Nobu instead.

    I arrived at Pink Taco half starved, so it was comforting to have the complimentary chips and salsa. I was really surprised that my friend and I were given separate containers of salsa. Yay! No worries of double dipping. The churrasco skewers were good for the appetizer. The lobster taco was good, but I wish there was at least one more tail (I had been starving). But that allowed room for dessert. I had the best churros ever! I was definitely full after that! Great job! Thanks to the chefs and staff!

    It's so hard to find places for me to eat out. Due to health reasons, I am a vegan who only can have 10 grams of fat a day. There are a few vegan choices on the menu that are lower fat, but the portions are pretty small for the price, especially when I have to bring my own dressings. The Paradise Salad was pretty good, but I have to say, for the tiny portion it should really cost less. On the other hand, I appreciate even having these vegan options. The coffee shop vegan menu contains nutritional information, but the vegan menu at Pink Taco doesn't, hopefully the amount of fat in the Pink Taco menu is less than the coffee shop (where fat grams run about 50 plus a serving).
