If you are looking for a quick lunch outside, Poquito Mas is a great option. Close to the studios, it is a good place to have something fresh. While not "fast food" it only took us about 10 minutes to get our lunch when the restaurant was crowded. It was perfect for what we were looking for. We didn't have a lot of time and we didn't want the fast food restaurant lunch.

Out of all of the restaurant options in Burbank, this is one of the few that I would really recommend to anyone, but note that it is a very casual sort of place, and you'll get very Americanized versions of some commonly known Central American style dishes.

First and foremost, they always have fresh Jamaica on tap. Other beverages are available too, of course.

They have a salsa bar and all of the variants are tasty. It also includes other necessities such as chopped fresh cilantro.

When you enter, you will place your order at the front counter, and then either wait there for take-out, or go find a table on the patio (which is enclosed at times with clear plastic sheets, something which I dislike, but it's not horrible or anything like that). Then they'll call you when your order is ready, and you fetch it and carry it to your table.

The food is enjoyable and what I would describe as good fast-food type dishes of a Mexican persuasion. It's particularly nice to be able to change things up by using the different varieties of salsas. The food always seems to be fresh and of good quality, something that is surprisingly difficult to come by from restaurants in Burbank, where it's not uncommon for some places to think nothing of serving you completely rotted salad etc.

This place will not serve you rotted anything, no worries. The only real worry you have is the crowd and parking, since it is close to the studios and very popular.

Food tasted stale and over seasoned. Chaos at counter...drinks not delivered at time of purchase. Tables dirty from prior guests.

Outdoor seating is great on a nice day in Burbank....food is really good, (fyi- the reason its so good is because of the fat/grease/oil in the meat ! So heath nuts beware, but it tastes really good!)

P Mas is set up like a fast food joint ... affordable pricing, fast service, good food. Place order, wait for your number to be called, pick up food, add salsa, cilantro, etc., find an open table & chairs, and enjoy the food ... that's all there is to it! Nice variety to choose from, add rice & beans ($1.50), drinks or tap water, and you're on the way. Hope this is helpful, when you make this decision.
