On a work trip, Yelp was raving about this new local joint. Sioux Falls is much more than I was expecting, and Vinyl Taco was one of those reasons. It is 21+, whether you're eating at their restaurant side, or going to their social club that is attached. The adult exclusivity adds to the mature, fun atmosphere--no kids allowed, and it is refreshing because you can play and eat like a kid here!
Their menu is pack-filled with every sort of taco option...my favorite being the crispy chicken taco. We also got an order of their chips and queso, their chips are crunchy and crisp. Their margaritas are so good, and so cheap. Being from Nashville I'm not used to drinks being so cheap, so this was a treat! You can get them by the glass or purchase a medium or large pitcher. We went with the strawberry margaritas, a perfect boozy fruity blend.
I had such a blast hanging out here. The menus were displayed on vinyl covers. We were greeted with fun décor like a lava lamp wall, and there were plenty of games next door from bowling and karaoke to beer pong and pinball!
Was sadly disappointed in this place. Had high hopes after reading other reviews and talking to friends who had been there before. Due to having a party of 8, the restaurant area was too small that we had no choice but to sit in the social club area which has a limited menu of food items to choose from. Our server was friendly, but not very well trained on the beer selection or menu items. When we asked what they had on tap in a dark or amber, he suggested something that we'd never heard of before in an Amber "I honestly can't even remember what it was called" so we thought we would give it a shot. When the beers finally arrived (15 minutes after the food) we were presented with something that appeared to be a pale ale, I confirmed this was what the server believed to be an Amber, so we tried it all the same. The beer ended up being something of a fruit out or sour. How can someone work in a bar and not know what a dark or amber be is? I sent mine back after a sip and opt'd for just water. We ordered 3 apps and 2 beers (One which we sent back) and were presented with a bill for almost $40.00. No breakdown on what we purchased, just a receipt for $40. When the manger came to check on us, I questioned why we weren't given a breakdown of the purchases. They were able to produce one that showed we actually got charged for 4 beers! They agreed to remove 3 of the 4 (even tough we never got what we ordered) and still paid for the apps.
The food was average at best. Nothing that was "To die for". Small portion of chips for the amount of dip. I don't quite understand why you have to keep a separate menu between the restaurant and the club, your selling single serve tacos, not full plate dinners or 4 course meals! Would never recommend the fried chicken skin appetizer. Not at all what we expected or hoped for.
This is separate from the restaurant next door, next door is Vinyl Taco and this is Vinyl Social -
The restaurant has a full bar and the social club only has appetizers. (Which I've pictured, they're printed on the record)
There are plenty of things to do - Nintendo, ski ball, shuffleboard, giant Jenga, ping pong, beer pong, checkers, dancing and more. Be mindful though, you pay for most of the games you'll play, much like in life (though I'm not sure if they make you pay for Jenga)
This place is a reason for retirees and parents with a herd of kids to leave the house and play games. Its cool.
Those of us that enjoyed Bucks in the early 2000's can come and enjoy more debauchery at the same location. We're old enough for social clubs but too old (yes, believe it) for clubs and bars.
Welcome drunk, you're home.
Its got an old school set up with a full bar but I only ordered a soda while here - it was silly and small- $2.50/soda, 1 refill - but its a cool joint where the music is too loud and you're bound to have some fun. :) Stop by.
ONLY OVER 21! First time we tried coming here we had our daughter and found out it is over 21 only. Second time we came with just adults. Unlike most Mexican restaurants they do not have complimentary chips and salsa. We ordered chips and queso. They were really good, actually better than our food. I ordered the burrito and my wife ordered enchiladas. The burrito was ok but the green sauce wasn't great. The enchiladas were not good and red daisy tasted like plain tomato sauce. Prices were kind of high. The ambience is cool rock and roll themed. I probably would not eat here again but would stop for a drink. They have a nice game area with mini bowling, pinball, ski ball, and some other games.
I love the concept, but it wasn't my favorite for just the wife and I going out. I'd go back with a larger group of friends or colleagues. Since it's game themed, it gets really loud. It was also very crowded. Pinball was .75 per player which seems excessive to me. They had a DJ and a poll on "which song do you want to hear next", which I thought was cool, but they never played and of the poll winners.
