Their 'tag-line' is "We don't serve fast food. We serve Fresh Food as fast as we can". The fact is that this location is small and they are not very efficient at taking and getting the orders out. There is a lot of room for improvement here. Our group ordered a Steak Burrito and a Passilla Dinner. The portions were... More

The tostadas are huge and delicious...very authentic Mexican food. I returned numerous times and the food was always fabulous. The tacos are great and the salads superb. The hibiscus (Jamaica) juice and horchata (rice drink) are to die for. The people are really friendly and fluent in both English and Spanish. I will be going back on my next trip.... More

I had the cheese enchilada plate and the enchiladas were absolutely fantastic! Truly some of the best I've ever had. But the beans were blah and the rice only so-so. Weirdest thing - the chips were stale. I mean, "no crunch" stale. Very unbalanced quality from one item to the other.

If you are looking for a quick lunch outside, Poquito Mas is a great option. Close to the studios, it is a good place to have something fresh. While not "fast food" it only took us about 10 minutes to get our lunch when the restaurant was crowded. It was perfect for what we were looking for. We didn't have... More

Out of all of the restaurant options in Burbank, this is one of the few that I would really recommend to anyone, but note that it is a very casual sort of place, and you'll get very Americanized versions of some commonly known Central American style dishes. First and foremost, they always have fresh Jamaica on tap. Other beverages are... More

Food tasted stale and over seasoned. Chaos at counter...drinks not delivered at time of purchase. Tables dirty from prior guests.

Outdoor seating is great on a nice day in Burbank....food is really good, (fyi- the reason its so good is because of the fat/grease/oil in the meat ! So heath nuts beware, but it tastes really good!)

P Mas is set up like a fast food joint ... affordable pricing, fast service, good food. Place order, wait for your number to be called, pick up food, add salsa, cilantro, etc., find an open table & chairs, and enjoy the food ... that's all there is to it! Nice variety to choose from, add rice & beans ($1.50),... More

Local food, plenty of choice, great flavors and very generous portions. This is not the venue for a gourmet meal, but it was a great choice for fast, freshly made Mexican food that satisfies. When you have had a long tiring day and want a quick good meal on your way back home, this is the place for you.

The staffs are very friendly. Lunch time could be busy. Overall, I don't think it is anything better than Portillo's.
