Pink Taco has arrived in the heart of Times Square on the corner of 41st Street and 7th Avenue offering cocktails and Mexican inspired bites, including ”tacos with attitude.” Upon entering, you are met with jet black walls and oversized neon colored murals in a towering space with a festive, yet edgy feel. Dangling from the ceiling is a huge disco ball in the shape of a skull.
Also near the entrance is a spiral staircase which takes you to an enormous second level with a lively bar and tables as far as the eye can see. There are big screen TVs galore on both levels to take in any sports action you could imagine.
The cocktail menu features ten different types of margaritas, including the Something Pink with El Jimador, prickly pear puree, fresh lime juice and agave nectar; Cock Fight with Cazadores Silver, tangerine, cucumber and fresh lime; and the Frozen Mango Con Chile slush. Several mezcal options are also available.
The menu features lively Mexican fare that begins with nachos, guacamole and street corn, along with taquitos and quesadillas that help get the party started. Diners will also find tacos, enchiladas fajitas, and burritos with assorted fillings. The Vampiro Taco comes with a choice of carnitas, chicken, or carne asada served on double pink tortillas with jack cheese, jalapeños, guacamole, chipotle mayo, cotija cheese, pico de gallo, and pickled red onions with a side of Mexican rice and pinto beans.
Pink Taco likes to say it’s not just another taco joint – “it’s sacred ground.” It is also open until 2am daily.
