Fodor's Expert Review Casa Calavera

$$ Hard Rock Hotel and Casino Mexican

Fans of the bygone Pink Taco will still smile in recognition when they see its replacement. The layout is much the same, including the convivial center bar. And the place is arguably even more fun now, thanks to greatly expanded outdoor patio seating against the backdrop of the pool area, which is likely to keep the 3–6 pm happy-hour crowd buzzing with hibiscus margaritas and sangria (special prices are in the bar area only). New operators still offer a Mexican menu within Dia de Los Muertos decor. You have to comb the corners of the menu to find anything more adventurous than tacos and burritos. However, they come in every form, from the standard chicken, carne asada to grilled fish and cauliflower. A weekend brunch offers day-drinkers the tantalizing proposition of a $42 "bottomless" mimosa.
