Pink Taco: River North’s New Taco Tuesday Staple

Open for just a mere few weeks, Pink Taco - an LA and Las Vegas stomping ground - now graces the millennials of Chicago with Happy Hour deals, Taco Tuesday specials, festive cocktails and a fun after-work atmosphere. Tacos and frozen pink sangria after a long day of meetings? I’ll take two!


With Summer soon upon us, it's time to make note of local go-to Happy Hours. Valid 3-7pm every day, a much longer time frame than most places, Pink Taco's Happy Hour deal offers 2 taco bundles, $8 margaritas, queso, DOS XX, quesadillas and more. 


Unique to the restaurant is a Taco Tuesday menu, occurring 4pm until close, offering even better deals on tacos than the restaurant’s satisfying Happy Hour menu. Seeing that tacos here are usually $15 for 3, Tuesday is defiantly the day to dine in if wanting to save a buck! The Taco Tuesday menu also lists Barbacoa as an option under Street Tacos, which is not on the regular menu (and super delicious). I tried the Barbacoa taco and (my favorite) the Pink taco - Achiote chicken, black beans, avocado, arbol salsa, cotija cheese, and habanero pickled onions on a corn tortilla. Brb, I’m drooling. 


A meal is not complete without a tastful cocktail. Behold Pink Taco’s Strawberry Margarita. Presented in a real pineapple, this double drink is a fan favorite due to its tropical aesthetics and tasty flavor. Needless to say, I'm planning to go back to try more taco combinations & the Something Pink cocktail!
