“Fresh, good and quick”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 13, 2013

Stopped at Pinto's for a quick lunch bite. The menu is Mexican and has the basics (Burritos, Tacos etc.). Food was very fresh and delicious. Prices are also decent with a burrito going for 5-6 pounds.

Recommended for a quality fast food lucnh.

“Amazing”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 25, 2013

This little gem in Glasgow is just amazing, can't believe I have only just discovered it. If you love Mexican food, well if you love Burritos get yourself down to Pintos for some pulled pork burritos with all the trimmings for a very reasonable price.

“Hidden Gem”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 23, 2013 via mobile

Love this place, went to the Queen St one today and it is officially a new favourite!
Pinto does Mexican street food and is a bit like Subway in that you pick all your fillings and sides for burritos/tacos/nachos etc. I had a spicy beef burrito and the meat was cooked perfectly. The burrito was massive and I got a side of nachos for 80p and was absolutely stuffed all day. They also had a good deal on margaritas and beer for two for £10. It was really nice to be able to get a beer with the fast food, something that's common in Europe but not so much over here.
The staff were amazing, friendly and helpful when I said it was my first visit. The restaurant itself is bright and clean, a bit like the inside of a Subway or McDonald's but nicer.
The prices are about £6-£10 but considering a foot long at Subway or a meal box at KFC would cost about the same I think it's great value for better food than you'd get at any other fast food place. I'm a total convert and I'll be going here anytime I need a quick lunch from now on!

I'd had a go at portion sizes, but it's back to it's best. If you're having a burrito in Glasgow, this is the place to go.

“Hidden gem !”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013 via mobile

I love Mexican food and never knew this place existed until last night when I decided I wanted a burrito and my boyfriend told me about this place. Went in and the restaurant was bright and clean with a subway style chain of ingredients you can add. There is a good choice of fillings to choose from, although some of the meat looks very dry. They burrito was huge and ifI anyone watches man v food it looks like something you would see on there. Burrito was lovely and ingredients tasted fresh, the only thing id have preferred it hot. I'd go back again to try other things on the menu.
