Squeaky Bean's Johnny Ballen and his partners will open a new place today: Cochino Taco, a Mexican cantina that's transformed a former gas station into what's sure to become a hip, happening place in a quiet area of Englewood hungry for more eateries. But some readers didn't wait for the opening to send in their reviews of the joint's name — or basic concept. Says Ian: 

Terrible name. Trite concept.

Adds Eric:

I'm waiting for another one of these trendy taco places to open with the translated name of Shit Taco.

Says Clint: 

Hipsters do not understand ethnic foods or chocolate. Great at marketing and presentation, but "you can't polish a turd."

Adds James: 

White folks always take something simple and make it complicated. All I want on my tacos is cebolla y cilantro with salsa and limon not all that other shit.

Concludes Bobert:

Dear White People: Stop opening hip taco places.

What do you think of the Cochino Taco concept?
