Going to be in Glasgow in March and tried to access a menu of the one and only Mexican place in the west end without sucess. If they do not have shredded beef Burritos we will be very unhappy as our Mexican place here in Orlando makes great ones, AND the margarita's are 12oz for $6,25 (about £4) mmm! Not a bad deal. What is your favourite pub in the city? We like them friendly and chatty with clean restrooms. we have one here in the city which pretends to be British but the 'fish 'n' chips are all cooked from frozen and awful.

I love reading about places where we can have good food and when it comes to Mexican ? I am really ?bowled? over!! I am really sorry about the criticism here about Anna who is only trying to be helpful and giving her experience when she visited the restaurant ? I definitely would have done the same if I were in her place!! I have tried a couple of restaurants suggested by her earlier and it was just as she said it would be!!

There is a nice looking place called Bibi's Cantina in Partick. Not been, but it looks lovely inside and I fully intend to go in the very near future.

This comment is directed to Mark from a born and bred Scot (if that matters). From someone who has traveled extensively- I can honestly say that compared with the rest of Europe (and some places in the US)the food in Scotland is generally not favourable. In fact lets say it is extremely poor. It's not that we have poor ingedients, no we export all of our good ingredients all round the world. You can't take it out on the US - these folk are right to complain -perhaps if we had the confidence to do this ourselves we might not be saddled with the crap we are served and the poor service on top. Ok - so they do inject there beefstock with hormones and there food is genetically modified, on occasion. But hey, the service in the US is generally good (superficial but good). Where it would be useful to compare is with other foods in Europe- the Belgians, French even the Dutch and Spanish. We don't compare- som come on folks- if the service is crap tell someone who serves you- they need feedback to change. Let's inject some pressure-companies pay good money for this.

You sound like a really charming guy Mark. I think you are the one with a low IQ. Maybe Anna is going over for more than a holiday -who knows? When I lived in Glasgow I craved decent Mexican or TexMex- doesn't make me a bad person- yank though I am. Who doesn't like to be able to get a few comforts from home when they're abroad. Brits sure do. Go to the Costa del Sol and every other place is a British pub. Here in the US the expat Brits are often found hanging out at British or Irish pubs as well. Get over yourself and your lame bigoted attitude.

Is Anna serious? She goes on holiday from Orlando to Glasgow and expects better Mexican food then she gets from her home right next to Mexico??? Or she'll be very unhappy? Not exactly a recipe for holiday success Why don't you just stay at home lady and play bagpipe music to accompany your lovely burritos? Either that, or try eating fish and chips from guess where? A FISH AND CHIP SHOP! Is the IQ of of Americans really so low that you all expect TexMex food everywhere you go? I bet you'd be shocked atreal food. If you want a pub with lots of atmosphere, why not try the Saracen Head? I recommend it to you. It has a great atmosphere. In fact, you may like it so much, that you'll never leave....alive.
