The food's quality and vibrant presentation sets the tone for the restaurant, and while taste is of the utmost importance, Pink Taco also believes that guests' sensory experience can only be improved with great music, exotic decor, and the spiciest staff in town!

  • "This Pink Taco location is a great spot for tourists, and I often bring out of town guests here because of the Mexicali rock n' roll ambiance. As for the food, I highly suggest getting the side of Mexican Sweet Corn, but skipping the guacamole which is pre-made, refrigerated, not very tasty, and overpriced."

  • "Used to be our go-to Mexican Resturant for food and fun but we will never go back. The food was truly horrible. Cheap sugar water lemonade followed by average very expensive guacamole and our tostada salads were served soggy and tasted like they were made days ago."
    Dined on 8/14/2014
  • "I have noticed a decline in the quality of the food at Pink Taco. The menu needs to be updated as well. The restaurant had a tired feeling to it. They even stopped validating for parking. Will probably not go back."

  • "We shared several items and found that each item had its own unique south of the border spices and flavors! Shrimp was fresh and the smoked, south of the border spiciness!"

  • "I usually hit up the Century City Pink Taco after the movies because they stay open late and offer wonderful margaritas. This time I decided to switch it up and get dinner before the movie instead. My friend and I had both had tacos: I went for the shrimp and she got the carne asada. We both agreed that the tacos were awesome, but the sides of refried beans and rice were pretty bland. My advice is to skip the food: stick to their cocktails and salsa or guacamole and you're set!"

  • "Fun and lively environment with outdoor patio and amazing guacamole! Great place to get away from the office and get rejuvenated at lunch time. Looks like the happy hour time frame would be ideal."

  • "We waited forever before server came to check on us & get our order, restaurant was not busy at all. The appetizer & meal arrived at same time. App was cold & again the server never checked on us even to see if we wanted anything else. There was nothing amazing or great about the food or I would've remembered what we had :( A manager was checking on tables & when I told him what happened, he offered to comp. the starter but when we got the bill that was not the case. Reminded manager of this & he apologized and corrected bill. He was nice and that is the only good thing about the place."

  • "Nice that the menu is different than your typical Mexican restaurant. The guacamole is exceptional. Good salads and sweet corn tamales. Sangria was among the best, too. Had to move to a less sunny spot inside, and the staff had no problem with that."

  • "THey said they didn't have a reservation for us even though i pulled up my conf email from opentable. They were rude and aggressive and would not seat us until we spoke to manager. WORST EXPERIENCE EVER. The hostess is awful"

  • "I was in town for business and wanted to relive my experience from the Pink Taco in Las Vegas. I ordered the guacamole which is as good as my homemade. They have a chicken dish on the menu with carmelized onions, black beans, cheese and spiced perfectly. Have it! You won't regret it. It is big and could be shared. The service was great in the bar and even though it was busy, the staff were attentive. I can't wait to go back again."

  • "The outdoor dining is the best at the Mall, but they need more umbrellas to help with the bright sun in the PM- they could buy some nice umbrellas for $100- at Costco that would add a lot to the experience! Besides that the place is terrific!"
    Dined on 6/21/2014
  • "This is a nice place for a meal. The food is good, and not too expensive. The margaritas are really tasty and the fired ice cream was unreal. They have a really nice patio with good views of the hills and, thanks to it's location in the mall, parking is never an issue. Recommended for a nice night out."

  • "The hostess was not that friendly. The food was barely mediocre and the their was a bottle cap in one of our drinks. Our glasses were very sticky. I already didn't expect much from this place and they under delivered. I will NOT be coming here again. The manager was very nice though. "

  • "Enthusiastic staff greeted us and we were shown to our table quickly. As it was a beautiful warm evening we had requested the patio. Apparently Friday there is a DJ playing music which was way too loud to carry on a conversation so we were escorted to a booth inside. Our waitress Charlotte was wonderful, personable and attentive. We ordered the lobster enchiladas and asked to substitute shrimp instead...no problem. I would recommend this dish as it is delicious. Restaurant offers a pitcher of margaritas which is way too much for two and it would be nice if a half pitcher was also an option for light drinkers that want to drive home safely. Overall great experience followed by a stroll around the mall and coffee."

  • "food was okay. hostess failed to inform us that happy hour specials are only available if you sit on the patio or in the bar - which would have been helpful information prior to her seating us somewhere else. "

  • "Our party of 4 loved our lunch at Pink Taco. The jug of Margaritas was DELICIOSO. Everybody enjoyed their food. The service was excellent. I had asked for an outside table and was pleased to see it reserved for us when we arrived."

  • "I have been coming to Pink Taco in Century City for a few years now. Food is always good, fair prices and great staff. The ambience is what grabbed me before anything but once I tasted the food, I knew I had found a place that was definitely being added to my favorites list. Awesome decor with the Crosses, Virgin Mary's, lowrider bikes and just an urban look all around. Whether your looking for a lunch spot, a happy hour or a date night, Pink Taco is worth checking out."

  • "We were there for two hours and not by choice. We had to wait so long for food and drink refills and then made the mistake of ordering dessert for the kids. TWO HOURS! We come here every few weeks or to get takeout and the kitchen has been super slow lately. Last month we ordered takeout (called ahead from home) and it still took an hour- I complained to the manager and he just said "Well we got slammed in the last half hour" The end. Nothing else. On the other hand, our servers have been pretty good. (fyi this is the first time we've made a reservation through open table for pink taco)"

  • "Great atmosphere from the exterior wooden door and neon "Pink Taco" light up sign!!! and inside with authentic old style decor. The chips were hot and fresh right out of oven and the salsa was incredibly addicting!! Friendly server and every entree was delicious in every way, and presentation of food was classy and colorful. Great music playing by the way!!! Outstanding dining experience! And to top it off...prices were surprisingly affordable and that made it even better!! Appreciate the complimentary birthday dessert for my daughter which was also presented so nicely on the plate and was sooo delicious (especially the homemade whipped cream) I'm assuming it was homemade! it was out of this world!!"

  • "I always have a nice time at pink taco. I used to really enjoy their happy hour. Now they have reduced the offerings on the HH menu and it does not make sense. They took off the soup and quesadilla added someother items to the $7 menu, but if you order them, they will cost $11. Not sure why they are changing a good thing."

  • "I passed by this restaurant and said to my family that I would like to go someday. Pink Taco was a great surprise. The highlight for me was the "Beer Margarita". My parents had a strawberry margarita in a hollowed out pineapple shell. Overall, a truly great experience."

  • "We had reservations. We were greeted with" we know you have reservations but the Kitchen is backed up so we wont be able to seat you For 30 minutes" The restaurant was half empty. When we finally got seated and ordered It took about 30 mins for the food to come out. Half of the orders Were completely wrong. It took another 20 mins for the correct Food to come out. It was the worst experience. No manager Ever came by to apologize. It left us wishing we had gone Somewhere else!"

  • "We made a reservation and requested the patio. When we arrived the hostess said it would be 10-15 mins for the patio so we had a seat right outside the front doors. We could see into the restaurant and the hostess stand. After about 30 mins we went inside to see what was going on and the hostess said she already called us but thought we left. We were 5 feet away! Finally we were seated on the patio and the heaters near us were not on, so I asked a server if they could be turned on. He looked at me blankly, then at the heater, then at me, and said he thought it was on. It was not. Needless to say the heaters were broken. Our server was pretty great and juggled a lot of tables so kudos to her."

  • "I had driven by the Pink Taco often and looked forward to going when I was asked to meet someone there. First, I have been a restaurant manager and notice everything about decor, food service, etc. Decor has personality. Restaurant was clean and staff was courteous and receptive. On Tuesday afternoon, the venue was quite empty. There should be no excuse for the terrible food. I don't use terrible lightly. Waitress recommended Carne Asada tacos. I opted for the Carne Asade plate. Meat was dry, bland, luke warm. It had obviously sat for a good while. 2 Carne Asade plates, no drinks + tip $46. With a couple beers, could easily be close to $60. Way overpriced Save $30 and hit Chipotle in Century City's food court. You'll be glad you did."

  • "A friend I hadn't seen in a long time and I arrived around 7pm and were seated almost immediately. Our waitress was prompt, helpful, and on hand without being overly pushy. The food was great, atmosphere was fun (if a little loud) and we were in and out no problem without feeling pressured for time."

  • "The service here is fast and friendly. Our server checked back several times. Our meals were delicious. It is the usual Mexican dishes but are prepared and served well. They make the best crispy tacos in the city. The ambiance is good. Lots of tables, both inside and outside. Comfortable and relaxed atmosphere."
