Slowly, but surely, I’m becoming a taco person. Therefore, when I learned about Pinches Tacos in Vegas via Instagram, I knew I had to try them out! To my delight, I seen they had Mexican Corn, so I knew that if i weren’t in a Taco Mood, Pinches would somehow still fulfill me. Heading to their Southwest Las Vegas location on #TacoTuesday (but before the Taco Tuesday deals started), I knew I was in for an exciting experience by the decor alone. Check out a few reasons why this is a GRAYT PLACE and a spot you should visit, #wheninvegas:
The Establishment: Hailed as an eatery offering, “Real Mexican Food by Real Mexicans,” the Pinches Tacos establishment has two locations in Las Vegas: one in Southwest Las Vegas (more of a locals’ getaway) and one located in Downtown Container Park (more a tourists’ retreat type of location). The Southwest Las Vegas location automatically embeds in you into Latino culture with the bright colors, Mexican art, make-shift food truck, and various seating arrangements. The size of the restaurant really allows you to take in the Mexican culture Pinches’s succeeds at conveying
Admittedly, I’m more of a soft shell taco type of guy when I do indulge in a taco or two. Two was the quantity choice for tacos when visiting Pinches Tacos–Asada/Grilled Angus Beef Taco & Camaron/Shrimp with Veracruz Slaw Taco. Both decent, THE MEXICAN CORN LITERALLY SET THE BAR FOR ALL MEXICAN CORN. I would literally commute to Pinches Taco daily for their Mexican corn. My mouth is literally salivating for this corn on the cob with Mexican cream, cheese, and Chilli Powder.
The Vibe & Atmosphere:
The Southwest location is interesting because it’s practically on the outskirts of the city, yet is placed within The Gramercy Las Vegas, a growing office-retail-living community. When visiting this location, you’ll definitely encounter more locals. I went a little after lunch hours, so I’m assuming its more populated and frequented during the weekends, during happy hour. Nevertheless, while you’re waiting on the Mexican (with a side of corn tortillas to sop up the leftover seasonings on the corn), you’d feel as if you’re in on an urban street block awaiting for friends eager for some good eats!
