PINK TACO – No Longer in the Pink
Ah Pink Taco. We used to love you. Ten years ago you we probably ate there at least ten times a year. It was right down the street from ELV’s Lawyer-at Law office, and we remember fondly many a margarita-fueled lunch, beer-soaked happy hour, or much-better-than-average Mexican dinners.
The menu used to be extensive, interesting and feel authentic…right down to the nice little Mexican ladies making the tortillas.
Now, the taco trios are gone, like many of the Hard Rock Hotel food outlets, it feels tired and shopworn, and the food isn’t even close to what you can get at Los Tacos or Tacos El Gordo for half the price. What it has become is that most dreaded of all restaurants: the Mexican restaurant for people who don’t like real Mexican food.
After noticing the clientele at the HRH, ELV concluded it’s giving the hotchickswithdouchebags crowd exactly what it wants.
ELV’s lunch for three, pictured above, with sodas only, including tip, came to $70.
You have been warned.
