We waited 40 min for food. Tacos were dry, the salsas tasted fizzy from being old and out of a bottle. Was disappointed in my experience over all. Staff was friendly.

We booked brunch here for a Saturday afternoon- love the decor inside & the drinks were good. Thought the food was a little over priced but the staff were friendly.

Loved the decor and vibe of the restaurant. Unfortunately the food was just ok. The meats were bland and not the best flavor. My drink was ok.

I would return for Happy hour with friends for apps but not a meal.

The server was terrible however ,who I believe was the manager was attentive to our request. The host was amazing . The cost of the food was definitely NOT worth it .

Pink Taco was great! The food, the music, and the vibe were all fantastic. My server/bartender Jamal, was very hospitable. I felt very welcomed and enjoyed my experience, so major kudos to Jamal. I have already recommended Pink Taco Chicago to friends and I will be back soon as well!

Over-priced Mexican food. Saw they had a decent happy hour. Went out for a solo dinner and was completely ignored by the staff for a good 15 minutes. That just set the tone for the rest of the meal. The guacamole was good. But the carnitas tacos were regular street tacos (missing the avocado salsa stated on the menu) and just ok. Will not be returning.

Unfortunately, we didn’t have the best experience at Pink Taco. Food: The appetizers (guac, salsa and chili verde fundido) were very good. The carne asada tacos were average and the chicken enchiladas were quite dry. Service: The service left something to be desired. I’m not sure if they were understaffed or another issues. We received our appetizers fairly quickly but had to wait about 20 min for napkins, plates, and silverware. We asked two staff members and ended up having to get napkins ourselves. The service was so slow we only ended up having one margarita at dinner. We also had to ask our waitress for our check twice after waiting 20 min the first time asking for it. Every restaurant has an off night, but with all the other options for Mexican food, I don’t think I’ll be returning.

Normally it’s great but this past Tuesday was awful. Our server and his trainee was working very hard and they did their job. But no one helped him with our orders.

When my friend got the table. She was sat and told her server’s name. That server never came. Our reso was for 7pm. It was about 7:30 and we still have not gotten water for the table or chips nor had any employee come to greet our table.

Luckily we knew a server and asked the GM if he could be our waiter. However, they had him running up and down, also running the bar and outside patio.

The other table had gotten there an hour behind us and was able to leave before us because they got their food and drinks in a timely manner. We felt so hungry and willing to pay whatever the cost but the service was so bad. We only got to order once. No one had more than a drink or extra food.

It was 8:30pm and we still have not gotten our first drinks.
When the food finally came out, almost everyone’s orders were messed up.

When we told the assistant manager how he was helping the other servers with their drinks but not ours, we felt very neglected. However, instead of being a good hospitable manager, he felt attacked and kept explaining and defended his situation. He even said, “If you were in my shoes...” or “If you guys just understood”. But we do understand; half the table works in the industry, bartenders, servers, and managers. That service and the need to explain himself was totally uncalled for. A good manager apologizes and closes us out so we can pay. We asked this manager 3x to close us.

We finally were fed up and just wanted to close out.
We paid in cash and two girls paid in card.

This morning my girlfriend gets billed the entire tab even though her receipt that she signed said a different amount (much smaller than the entire tab).

We must have left about $80 in cash and personally tipped our servers in cash.

This has been a nightmare. We sadly will not be going back to Pink Taco again.

Waitress kept disappearing for long periods of time. Once we were done eating after 20 minutes of no one checking on us we finally went to the bar to ask to for our server to close us out.

The drinks were good. Would’ve definitely had more to drink if the service wasn’t so slow. A little expensive, but I dont mind that as long as we have a good experience. I work in the industry so maybe I’m a bit more critical, but I wouldnt go back. The carnitas nachos were really good, but that’s about all that I’d consider “really good”. The other entree items we tried were alright, at best.

My friend was in town visiting. There was absolutely nothing that went right about our meal. A flyer on our table said happy hour until 8pm and so we ordered drinks from it and the waiter told us that was inaccurate. Then one drink arrived in a pineapple (an upcharge) that we hadn’t ordered. When our food arrived my dish was incorrect (one of the three tacos was wrong) and they tried to put more food down that we hadn’t ordered. We had to flag down other severs to get our waiter on multiple occasions (once for water, once for a side, once for a to-go box) and everything was incredibly slow (took over 10 minutes to get water). We tried to flag a manager down when things started going downhill but not a single manager was to be found. The whole night really was soured by this experience and probably will not be returning.

The food was room temperature the waitress wrote down our whole ordered and still did not get it right they gave our appetizers to a different table and claimed to have remade them but the corn and queso were room temp. Margaritas were good table for two were terribly small street corn and Mexican rice were dry they gave us a refund for my husbands order so I guess that was a win since we didn’t trust them to remake anything we also ordered to go for a friend we spent $12 on guacamole and never got it

I’m a Tiktok influencer & wanted to check out this place for a review and content. And this experience was by far the worse. They not only kept bringing us everyone else’s order, when our order came it was completely wrong and cold. Even drinks took away. Our waitress barely noticed we were there. And not to mention requesting for the manager took 20-30 extra minutes. Highly recommend to not try this place.
