Pink Taco Restaurant Review:

About the restaurant: Pink Taco is right at home in lively nightlife district River North. Clearly a first stop on the late-night itinerary, the joint attracts the bar- and club-ready crowd decked out in weekend wear. Flatscreens streaming sports events and music amp up the multi-level space. Look for a casual vibe and fun interior, from retractable garage doors to works by local artists.

Likes: Great nightlife pre-game spot.
Dislikes: Inconsistent temperatures.

Food & Drinks: With made-from-scratch salads, tortas, taco bowls and burritos, the restaurant brings one more amenity to its arsenal: a taco truck named "Brandy." Skip the nachos for grilled street corn with chipotle mayo, chile powder and cotija cheese and the shareable hamachi ceviche. Rich, cheesy lobster enchiladas is a standout dish. Steak fajitas fail to sizzle. Other signatures include ape and octopus tacos. For liquid dessert, sip slowly on frozen pink sangría. House-made margaritas boast sweet and sour, organic agave and fresh lime.
