Pincho Plates at Pincho

Pincho customers can now take advantage of the homegrown chain's newest offering — customizable entrées. Here's how it works: Next time you visit a location, choose a base (chicken, steak, or shrimp kebab, vaca frita, or roasted veggies), followed by two side dishes (white or brown rice with beans, slaw, classic fries, tostones, veggies, or salad). Consider upgrading your plate with fried cheese, Cajun fries, sweet potato tots, or mac and cheese. Finally, select one of Pincho's sauces, including cilantro, chipotle aioli, or aji aioli. Available at all Pincho locations; pincho.com.
