Stepping inside the Pinches Tacos location at the still-developing, ghost town-ish Gramercy residential and retail complex feels like the first day of summer vacation. Picture a vibrant beach-front lot stocked with a colorful beer-and-margarita bar and a taco truck churning out everything from al pastor to fried fish tortas to crema- and chile-slathered ears of grilled corn. Order your food, take that first sip of your beverage and you’ll have to force yourself to remember you’re in the middle of the desert.

Pinches Tacos at the Gramercy

Beach or no, the vibes are right at Pinches, the SoCal transplant that opened its first Vegas restaurant in the Downtown Container Park more than two years ago. The Gramercy spot offers the same authentic Mexican menu in a bigger, better, super-chill space perfect for weekend brunching. Served Saturday and Sunday until 1 p.m., the desayunos menu lets you mix chilaquiles ($10), huevos rancheros ($9.95) and breakfast burritos ($7.50) with your Pinches favorites. And $2 Taco Tuesdays are only the beginning of the deliciously discounted fun here; happy hour runs 4 to 7 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday—and all night Sunday and Monday—featuring $4 draft beers and well drinks. Pretty beachy.

Pinches Tacos Gramercy, 9025 W. Russell Road #190, 702-818-4208. Monday-Thursday, 9 a.m.-11 p.m.; Friday & Saturday, 9 a.m.-1 p.m.; Sunday, 9 a.m.-10 p.m.
