I hate giving a bad review but Pancho Villas deserves it. Our starters included mixed nachos. These were thrown together. Everything looked scooped on - also the nachos were cold which is a real no no. Nachos should be smoking hot! Our cold drinks were warm. Our main course fajitas were truly awful. The tortillas were cold and were obviously... More

We are lovers of Mexican food, this was a poor attempt. We only had starters and never actually had a main course. We had a selection of starters but we were very disappointed, so we never ordered anything else.

This restaurant has been there for years and has gone through quite a lot of changes over the time. It started as a really genuine Mexican restaurant run by Mexicans. It became very popular and soon went down hill. We stopped going for years after a birthday meal that was very poor and the service bordering on the insulting. When... More

I have been to this restaurant several times and have always enjoyed every dish I've ordered. The dishes are made to your liking and the staff are so helpful at explaining each dish and recommending dishes you may enjoy. They make great cocktails too.

Ordered from the lunchtime menu and didn't have to spend very much for two people at all and both portions were perfect for the appetite we had!

Lots of gluten free options and friendly helpful staff. We had chicken fajitas and lamb tacos were especially good.

Me and my wife went here for dinner. It was fairly quite which is understandable as it was a Monday night. We still had a great laugh and thoroughly enjoyed our panchos experience due to the incredible salsa playlist they had on and off course the tequila shots haha. The food was great and the service was very pleasant too.... More

Booked a table for 7.30 on 3/12/16 as we have been several times before in a group. Our starter was fine but we waited nearly an hour for our main course. The waitress notices us sitting and within 2 mins our mains arrived-lukewarm. It seemed like they had forgotten about our food and was reheated? The waitress apologised but no... More

10 of us had dinner here and it was a bit of a mixed bag. Service on the evening was extremely slow & the starters were cold. Perhaps they were shirt staffed! Main courses were either just okay or not too good & service again took what seemed a decade! Hygiene wise 5 out of 10. All in all we... More

Staying in Glasgow for the evening to see a gig. We love eating and cooking Mexican food. The chef needs a lesson on fajitas. Surely a packet mix. Enough to put anybody of Mexican food.
