We enjoyed lunch and drinks mid week when the restaurant was quiet. Well located on Bell Street in the very popular Merchant City area of the City. The restaurant offers a wide choice of Antojitos, Burritos, Tacos, Enchiladas, Fajitas and house dishes. We ended our visit with wonderful margaritas setting us up for the rest of the day in this...

Went for works party, drinks constantly being served. Took 1 1/2 hours until food showed up with 3 meals missing and all we got was "oh we are sorry, it's a busy night, here is the bill for the food we have served" Not forgetting the amount of drinks that had to be paid for during the long wait... Beware!!!

The staff are terrible and the speed of service is painfully slow. The portions are tiny and afterwards me and my friends after paying a hefty bill were all left starving.

Good variety on menu. Food arrived promptly. Waiter and waitress were attentive and pleasant. Flavoursome food and would like to return to try other items from the menu. Would suit small or large parties, great atmosphere.

Dined here last night as it was our last dining out before we have our baby & an early valentine meal. Also the first restaurant we went to on our... More

This has always been my favourite Mexican Restaurant in Glasgow. Unfortunately the menu has changed to "tapas style" which is a huge change for the worse. There is less choice on the menu and this style of dining doesn't fit with mexican food for me. The portion sizes were too large for tapas and too small for a meal. Although... More

After many years visiting Pancho Villas, was surprised to see a new menu (printed on the place mats) with lower prices for most dishes. Also noted that the quality of the food has improved. Only difference is that side dishes such as rice, sauces and salads now need to be ordered separately from the main courses. Still works out cheaper... More
