Top 5 Mexican Restaurants in Glasgow
Bibi’s has been serving Glasgow since 2007 and is still one of the first places that people recommend when the topic of a good Mexican restaurant crops up. You get a free welcome margarita and a seat in one of the cosiest, friendliest restaurants around. It’s popular with the locals and for those making the effort it’s worth the trip to the farther end of Partick – buses for Clydebank pass right by the door.
Bibi’s Cantina, 599 Dumbarton Road, Glasgow, G11 6HY
A relatively new kid on the block, but already getting a name for itself. With 50 tequilas to try, you may be here some time. The décor is a bit kitsch but the salsa is hot, the service friendly and you get to wear a silly hat with your dinner (if you want). Good food and prices makes also this is the ideal place for a fun night out – and it’s near to a number of night clubs should the fun continue into the night.
Juan Chihuahua, 373 Sauchiehall Street, Glasgow, G2 2HU
Based on an original American idea this is more of a takeaway/fast-food outlet than restaurant but that hasn’t stopped Pinto quickly opening three locations in Glasgow (as well as branching out into Edinburgh). From tasty lunches to a late night taco you’ll be sorted here for something quick, inexpensive & tasty.

Las Iguanas has been around for years down south but only recently made the move into Glasgow. It’s not just Mexican as they provide a mix of Latin American food in a Western style such as enchiladas, gambas and nachos. Good cocktails and a retro interior with happy hours providing good cocktail prices. This well-regarded chain now also has restaurants in Aberdeen and Edinburgh too.
Las Iguanas, 16-20 West Nile Street, Glasgow, G1 2PW
