A treasure trove of delights for all foodies, lovers of Mexican foods and American ex-pats looking for that canned pumpkin fix. 

The place may be cosy, but it is stuffed to the brim with rare and firey treats – if you're one for the spice, you're in good company. The shelves are stocked high with hot sauces, tinned beans and over 35 types of tequila – that's 35 types of instant mojo! There's also an equally impressive range of candy and baking supplies from over the pond, as well as a chilled cabinet offering freshly prepared salsa, guacamole and cooking chorizo if you're looking to cook up a storm sans your average supermarket fare. 

Pintos' even hosts a now-infamous Chilli Cook-Off in both Glasgow and Edinburgh (usually held in October). This annual madness sees hundreds of culinary adventurers tour their respective cities' participating restaurants in search of the perfect variation on the Tex-Mex classic, replete in sombreros and moustaches, obviously.

Lupe Pintos is also a regular stalwart in The Skinny's annual Food & Drink Survey, landing winning spots within the Best Shops categories from 2014 right through to the current list in 2019. Check out the full list of winner's from the 2019 Food & Drink Survey to find out where else to head for a bite, a pint or to carry out your food shop.
