I loved the food, energy, and ambiance. The one critique is that it was WAY TOO LOUD. I couldn't really have a conversation with my fiance because I felt like I had to scream to her.

Some of the food was awesome (nachos), some (like the tacos) were just not cutting it, very dry and tasteless meat. The drinks were tasty but weak & very sweet. The service was borderline awful, but the ambiance made up for most of tht. Id prob just come back for a drink and a few apps while chatting with friends, maybe.

Having heard good things about Pink Taco I went in with high expectations. It was a typical Taqueria and Cantina experience. They tried to switch things up by adding a twist to their cocktails and really friendly service experience but the food missed it's mark. Our table ordered the Chicken Taco bowl and Lobster Tacos and I must say the first was much better than the latter. They created a great ambience with a decent service. We also ordered food to go for our friends and they messed up the order (we got Pork and Chicken enchiladas instead of the Chicken and Veggie Enchiladas that we ordered). All in all I would say if you are looking for a loud and energetic environment to grab some drinks with a couple of friends, this is your spot. If you are looking for a great dining experience with delicious food, this might not be the place for you.

Our first “Covid date” out! We were 20 mins late for our reservations due to our Uber & were still seated right away (with the option of indoor/outdoor seating !)
Amazing waitress, amazing food, and drinks. Clean, comfortable, abiding by all the “rules”. The decor is so electric and the vibe was great! Definitely recommending it to others and we will be back! Our server, “301 Alexia V” on my receipt was absolutely perfect as well! Big thanks to her!

The restaurant seated us outdoors as there was ample room. Good distancing between tables. Only negative is that our waitress got my drink order and food order completely wrong. (Margarita on the rocks instead of frozen, chicken instead of steak, corn instead of flour tortilla). Still ate it, but not enough attention was paid.

I’m very disappointed in my experience here at pink taco. We had two tables reserved (8people total) and when the other guests started arriving the host who brought them over helped in moving the tables closer. BUT the manager came over and stated they had to be separated due to social distancing. We would have understood completely IF we didn’t look over a see the table a few feet over from us with 13 (I counted) people standing together and drinking, eating, no masks. I then saw the same manager look at that table and look at us and went back into the kitchen and said absolutely NOTHING to the other table. I can only assume it is Because that table of 13 was all white people while our table was of mixed races. In a time like this racism is screaming in every which way. Not only was this a problem but our waitress had a few disgusting comments as well.

I decided to take my girls out for a lunch date. The place itself was clean and lively. Loved the music, decor, and art. Food was delicious we tried the Mexican corn, chips and salsa, pink queso, 3 different types of taqueria: fried lobster (delish), chicken and steak. The drinks were yummy-margaritas (cucumber). Our waitress Leslie was awesome! One suggestion I would recommend is to revise the uniforms for waitresses. Felt they should be a bit more professional and wear uniforms that are a bit more fitting/flattering. It’s such a nice place but some of the girls did not appear to fit the vision of your establishment. My waitress’ uniform was appropriate but felt others weren’t. Overall great!!

Overall Pink taco was good. We had to wait 30 mins to be seated despite having a reservation. Which was fine due to the pandemic, they need all the money they can get. It was VERY LOUD inside. Carlos was our server, he was excellent. The food was good. There were some social distancing issues that the manager was trying to deal with. College kids not following the rules, but the manager was on it. I would go back.
