Pink Taco Hard Rock Las Vegas Salsa

Chuck and I hit up the 'Taco for an early dinner on a Saturday night, about 5ish, and were seated immediately. Our waiter took drink orders and chips and three types of salsa followed shortly.

We ordered the Sweet Corn Empanadas and a side of Guacamole as appetizers. The empanadas (3) were small, about a 3-inches long and were sweet in taste. They were perfect in that they were light enough to not fill us up before our entrees arrived. The guac, while lacking acid but still tasty, was served with the avocado pit indicating it's freshness.

Thanks for the review Ms Monkay. How does the Taco compare with Gonzalez y Gonzales at NYNY or Border Grille at Mandalay? (If you have eaten at either).

Never have eaten at either of those joints. Being that we get excellent Mexican food over in our neck of the woods, I never have the urge for it in Vegas.

i thought pink taco @ hard rock was a little overpriced. and i think the review nailed the slightly empty taste of the food. donny, border grill appears to be the same as the one in santa monica, ca where i worked for many years. whilst i wasn't ever a huge fan of the food there (the happy hour was awesome value though), i'd go to border grill for the cochinita pibil 18 times to pink taco 1 time. that's right 18 to 1. and that shall be the case here in LA where we now have both.

Every time I eat at the Pink Taco I ask myself why I just wasted my time eating here when there are a gagillion other great places to eat in Las Vegas. Food = bland, wait staff = inattentive . Would much rather eat at Mr. Lucky's if I'm going for fast food slop at HRH.
