Pretty in Pink: Austin’s All Pink Mexican Restaurant

Do you love the color pink, day drinking, and shoving tacos in your face? If so, then we’ve got the ultimate dining spot for you in Austin, Texas known as Taquero Mucho!

There is so much we want to tell you about this place, starting with the name; Taquero, in Spanish, refers to someone who makes tacos, fitting for a Mexican restaurant, but the name is actually a fun play on the phrase “te Quiero mucho” meaning “I love you so much.” And if you think that is cheeky and adorable, just wait until we get to the drink menu.

But first, we need to talk about the decor. Everything is pink. And we don’t mean there are pink accents or there is a lot of pink, we mean everything from the outside of the building to the floors and the walls, and the chairs and the booths, even drinks and the tortillas are pink. Yes, pink tortillas. We promise we’ll get to the food menu in a hot second, but we need to talk about the drink menu first. Most of which are, you guessed it, pink. 

Now, of course, you can nab some of your typical cocktails here like a classic pink margarita or Paloma, but we’re most interested in the specialty drinks. Take for instance the signature “Anti Bitch Juice” which is strawberry frozen rose served in a pouch, or the “Actin’ Kinda Shady” beverage made with fresh strawberries, lime, vodka rose, and mint, served with pink heart-shaped shades, and of course, there’s the “High Maintenance Watermelon CBD Margarita” a house margarita with watermelon, agave, and CBD. This is definitely the kinda place you need to go with a group so you can all order a different cocktail and try them all.

Now let’s talk food because you know it’s good here. We already told you that the tortillas are pink, but don’t worry, no food dye is used; pink tortillas are made with all-natural ingredients, and the pink hue comes from fruits and vegetables. A few of our favorite dishes on the menu are the Cubana Torta, Pechuga de pollo Avocado, and elote. Seriously, we can make a meal of just elote. The menu here is solid and you can view the menu in full here

You can of course enjoy a gorgeous gorgeous brunch here on the weekends between 11 AM and 3 PM where you can enjoy mimosas, chicken and pink waffles, French toast, tacos (of course), and all of the delicious brunch staples. (View the brunch menu here!) 

 So, we’ll see you there? First round is on us.
