Pink Taco (moved from LA)

Where is Pink Taco located?

  1. It's in the Century City mall, upstairs near the Container Store.

    1. Not sure about the one in Century City, but the PT in Vegas is fantastic. Especially when you've been drinking at the pool all day.

        So I guess nobody likes it then. I only asked because the address I got for it online gave me a Robertson address. So I drove down Robertson today looking for it and couldnt find it.
        I was just asking. haha

      2. It's in the century city plaza/mall on Santa Moncia blvd, I think. Or is it in the Beverly center? Wel, some big mall complex

        1. Hi Lisamp...Pink Taco is definitely in the Century City Mall...located on the 2nd floor above Houston's. Have fun!

          1. Has anyone been there? Is it any good?

              I've only been to the one in Vegas. It was horrendous.
              I'm sure the one in Century City is in the same ballpark.

                Hmmm ...

                Horrendous is a bit hyperbolic, to me.

                I thought it was actually better than Acapulco's or El Torito and worse than any place I'd go if there was any choice at all. Ac and ET are just slop to me, PT's greatest sin was an aggressive blandness.

                Unless I get a job in Century City I'll live the rest of my life without eating at Pink Taco. But I didn't think the food I had was any worse than any other chain.

                And the margarita was pretty good. I think they poured Chinaco, too, though I really don't remember for sure.

                I think I had a torta. It was about as good as Quiznos or something like that.

                As for the name, it is irrelevant to the dining experience. The waitresses aren't particularly sexy or scantily-clad.

                My take: I could understand why the Hard Rock in Vegas would have a Pink Taco (semi-sexy name; Mexican fare for tourists who've never had Mexican food), but I don't see the need for such a place in Los Angeles. (Though I've read the food is bad overall in CC -- maybe it won't matter there).

                Pink Tacos served in Vegas should stay in Vegas.
