Diner Reviews
  • "Seven of us showed up to celebrate my son's birthday. We had reservations and was on time. They seated us quickly at a large table we picked out and brought us an extra chair too. Our server David was very friendly, helpful with drinks suggestions and checked on us regularly. The staff took pictures of us too (nice). Food and drinks were good and the fried ice cream was delicious. We had a blast! This place is close to where I live. My wife and I come ofter and we always have a good time. Thanks!"

  • "We arrived moments before an earthquake which we didn't feel due to the level of the music at this fun, fabulous taco joint. The food was great and fun, the servers beautiful and/or handsome, and the prices very gentle. Really worth the visit for the guacamole alone. "

  • "My sisters and I went here while visiting LA. The server David was amazing and was hilarious! He was one of the best servers we have ever had! I had shrimp tacos, one sister had portobello tacos and other sister had brisket tacos. We all LOVED all of it! I highly recommend eating here!"

  • "I was able to get a table for two booking just 45 min in advance on a Sat night even though the place was busy. The staff was awesome. Great sense of humor, attentive and had solid food recommendations. We got sat on the patio which is really great for watching all the happenings on Sunset Strip. Great food and overall excellent experience. "

  • "This is the second time I've been to Pink Taco on Sunset. The food is really, REALLY good. One of my party was disappointed with her drink, the Pretty Bird that Kills, expecting it to be less alcohol-y, and another of my party was disappointed that her pina colada wasn't served in a pineapple. My drink (Puerto Rican Jan) was perfect. The guacamole was extremely fresh and the salsa was very good. I had the Pink Taco with beans and rice on the side. I wish I got the carne asada tacos like one of my party but I can't complain; everything was delicious. We had to wait probably 10 minutes before who I assume is the manager took our drink orders. He also took our food order, and brought out our food. Our missing server was our only issue, really."

  • "Came to LA to celebrate husbands birthday with some friends and when I made the reservation I specifically stated we were celebrating a birthday. They never acknowledge the birthday and the whole time we were there we felt rushed by our waitress. The food was ok but just wish they could have made it better especially since we had such high hopes. Pink Taco in Las Vegas definitely knows how to treat their customers and just thought this Pink Taco was like it as well. Needless to say I wish I would have chosen a different eatery."

  • "The food here is just ok. The bus boy was great but the waitress was never around. He did everything and she never was around except to take our food order and drop the bill off. The place wasn't even busy. The drinks were good but everything else was lacking. I use to like this place a lot but felt like its went down hill. Please work on the service. There were 2 or 3 hostesses that were all rude. I could understand if it was busy but it wasn't. The waitress was worthless. Thank goodness for the bus boy or we would have left. The food was just mediocre. What happen to the yummy food that you guys use to serve. I doubt we will be returning here."

  • "The food wasn't at all great. 2 of our parties entrees were cold and had to go back to the kitchen. The service was hit and miss. We ended up getting more attention from the bus boy. We took out of town friends here to show them a "decent" Mexican meal and left embarrassed."

  • "The happy hour isn't quite like any other happy hour...it's a $7 happy hour. Given that, all of the food items are great for sharing. 2 tacos and an order of guacamole will cost a group of 2 $11 each. add a beer for another $3-4 bucks. Thus, it's a more expensive happy hour but the food is DELICIOUS! Good, fresh ingredients make the whole experience worth while. 4.5/5 stars"

  • "The best part of our meal was the margarita. The queso was also excellent. Other than that, it is hard to find anything great to say about the food. the service was good and they were accommodating w/ special orders, but they were not terribly busy at the time either. Did enjoy the al fresco dining!"

  • "Overall it was OK. I usually go to their Century City location but decided to mix it up and visited the sunset location. It as my topical experience except for the food. The portions on Sunset were much smaller than Century City and it was confirmed to me by the server. Consistency is key to a successful business especially a restaurant."

  • "I love the Pink Taco at the Hard Rock in Las Vegas, so was severely disappointed in this place. The music was so loud my dinner companion and I could not talk. The seats were uncomfortable. The service was slow and they got several things wrong on the order. And the food was just not good. I would think food would be consistent among all the Pink Taco restaurants, but apparently not. I would not come to this place to eat...go drink at the bar if that's your thing, but there are way better options in the area."

  • "Had a great time with my girlfriends. We waited to be seated for a little bit but all was well since the manager suprised us with free shots. It was super fun and we had a great table just would recommend better service from our waiter, he missed 2 of our orders but at the end we had a great time."

  • "Definitely worth a visit. You'll feel like you left a party when you're done. Everyone is super friendly including the valet, hosts and servers. It can get crowded, so make sure you reserve a spot with Open Table."

  • "When we visited Pink Taco about a year ago we had a great time...great for outdoor dining, neighborhood gem, etc. At that time they served their taco's CRISPY and delicious. When we got our taco's the other night they said they changed to soft taco's that were terrible ,,,,,,small piece of chicken with some onions on top. NO SHREDDED LETTACE, NO TOMATOES, NO CHEESE...just plain tacos!!! When I got my order which was a asada faita it came to me a CHICKEN FAITA!! The waitress apologized. Before I got the waitress's attention it was cold to take back and my wife was almost finished with her small taco's, It's too bad since we live in the neighborhood, but we won't be back!"

  • "We went for happy hour and the place wasn't busy so we were able to sit right down. We thought it was the exact same happy hour as Century City but found that some items were removed from the menu and the tacos were so small for the price. The drinks are also smaller than century city. Aside from that, the food was still good and we enjoyed ourselves. Given the fact that it wasn't too busy, our server could have been a little more attentive as well."

  • "This place was a blast and has an amazing vibe to it!! can't wait to go back and enjoy some more good times. I love that they have a happy hour even on saturday's from 4pm to 7pm. This place is a must from here on in- great service, food, drinks and people!! Thanks Pink Taco"

  • "It was alright but the price for what they give you a bit pricey. 2 carnita tacos for 9 bucks without sides is a little disappointing. The cocktail I got was small and prices was high. Overall its OK worth trying once but if I go again someone has to buy me dinner cuz I won't"

  • "We have eaten at the Pink Taco in Century City and wanted to try the Sunset Strip location for a change. We were not disappointed! The Pink Taco margaritas, although not pink, were so yummy!!! Would go back just for them :) For anyone who has eaten at the other location, be aware that the menu is not the same but the food is good. Asked for a table with a view and was seated near the sidewalk with an excellent view. Everyone was helpful and friendly."

  • "Very busy when we arrived and although having reservations we were sat in the "basement" right beside the washroom. Great seats! The free nacho chips and salsa were the highlight of the meal. The "pink tacos" had a weird flavour and the plate looked like a mess . The burrito was bland and flavourless and had to be doused in hot sauce to give it any kind of flavour, and the side salad tasted like biting into an onion. Gross. This would be a good place to kill a bottle of tequila but definitely not to eat."

  • "There is not enough room in this box to express my deep displeasure with our experience at Pink Taco this past Saturday. My husband has already sent an email to Jim Uhl and Corey Conrad detailing what happened, and hopefully this will help them figure out how to survive the competitive restaurant scene on the Sunset Strip. I can assure you that restaurants come and go all the time in that particular location, and there is absolutely no chance for Pink Taco if they don't straighten themselves out. It truly is a shame because that spot has an unlimited potential for success, and it seems that Pink Taco will not be experiencing any of it. We won't be going back."
