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.
I'm waiting for another one of these trendy taco places to open with the translated name of Shit Taco.
Hipsters do not understand ethnic foods or chocolate. Great at marketing and presentation, but "you can't polish a turd."
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.
Dear White People: Stop opening hip taco places.
