There are few Pizza Huts in Glasgow City Centre but I will focus on the Argyle Street restaurant. This particular Pizza Hut is just outside of Central Train Station and sits on a corner near KFC, McDonalds and Chopstix. There is no reserved parking but there is a paid car park a few minutes walk from the restaurant.
This Pizza Hut is open 7 days a week and offers a sit in and take out menu. Opening times are as follows :
Pizza Hut has disabled facilities and baby facilities including high chairs.
As you would expect, Pizza Hut mainly offers pizzas with a few additional menu options.
*Starters - include potato wedges, nachos and garlic bread priced from £2.25.
*Pasta dishes - include lasagne, mushroom bake and salmon bake priced from £7.95
*Salad is available for £5.55 for as much as you want. This is free with each main meal purchased.
*Pizza - lots to choose from starting with what type of base you want (pan, thin or gluten free) and then lots of vegetarian toppings, meat and other toppings that you can mix and match. Set pizza options are available including 'Double Pepperoni' and 'Chicken Supreme'. You can go half and half or add cheese bites. Pizzas are available in regular or large sizes priced from £6.75.
*Desserts - cookie dough with toppings,crumble, fudge cake, ice cream from the Factory. Priced from £2.95.

I love Pizza Hut but we don't get to visit much now as I am on a diet and my son doesn't like anything that they offer. We have visited the Argyle Street Pizza Hut several times and have never had any problems during our visits here. Our most recent visit to this restaurant was on Sunday. I had planned a shopping trip with my friend in Glasgow and we had planned on going to an Italian restaurant. After wandering around for 2 solid hours, we couldn't find a table anywhere that was within our price range. We gave up and decided to go to Pizza Hut!
We were seated quickly though the restaurant was quite busy. This Pizza Hut is set across two levels and on this occasion we opted to sit downstairs. The restaurant is clean as are the toilets but there are a lot of tables crammed in to a small space. There isn't an ideal amount of space at the buffet area and it does feel quite crammed. Service in this restaurant is friendly and food is served promptly and always with a smile. The buffet and occasional set menus offer good value for money. We have participated in these offers before but they aren't available on a Sunday anymore so we had to order from the main menu.
Having dined at Pizza Hut a lot over the past few years, I have my favourite items for the menu. We ordered two strawberry milkshakes to drink and these were soooooo tasty as they had strawberry syrup in them! The menu is well laid out and sufficient time is given to decide what we want. Pizza Hut are really good at accommodating fussy eaters as we found as the man at the next table was a very plain eater. They cater for all and are family friendly with their dishes and service. Children are given pencils and paper too!
We ordered a dish of garlic bread to share which was lovely and some nachos. I am used to ordering these nachos at my local Pizza Hut but wasn't overly impressed with the lack of cheese on ours as it made them a little dry. The sour cream and salsa were lovely. We sometimes order the potato wedges as they are usually delicious. As we purchased two main meals, we were given a salad bowl to fill up. This is great if you have a big appetite but can be very filling so I didn't eat much. The salad bar is varied and everything looked and tasted fresh. I had a few different things including tomato pasta, breadsticks, coleslaw, beetroot and some tortilla chips.
I was desperate to have a pasta dish rather than pizza but was quite disappointed at the choice. I know the focus is on pizza but there are only four pasta dishes and two contain mushroom based sauces. I do love the pizza at Pizza Hut and have always found that the Argyle Street restaurant cooks it to perfection. My favourite is a pan pizza with pepperoni, bacon, lots of cheese and a stuffed crust - mmmmm! But anyway, I ordered lasagne (British and Irish beef, chianti bolognese sauce, tomatoes and topped with mature cheddar sauce - £7.96). Pizza Hut promote their pasta dishes as being foot long dishes. I was expecting something bigger than I could eat but received a nice narrow but long dish. My lasagne but cooked beautifully and hot through. There were a few layers of tasty pasta but not a massive amount of meat. The sauce was lovely and flavoursome but the best part was definitely the cheese topping - creamy and absolutely divine!
I enjoyed my foot long lasange but couldn't resist a bit of my friends pizza. She ordered a thin base cheese and onion pizza and it was huge - around 8 pieces in total. The pizza was lovely and perfectly seasoned though chilli flakes and parmasean are available if you fancy it. The pizza wasn't greasy which I appreciated. The pizza remained unfinished as it was so big. Pizza Hut give you the option of boxing up any remains but we had two slices left so declined as we were going to the market and didn't fancy carrying it about. It is good that this is an option though.
The desserts are choice is limited but I'm sure everyone will find something suitable. I always have room for dessert and couldn't resist ordering one of the 'exclusive to Pizza Hut' cookie dough desserts. My choice was banoffe cookie dough - out of this world! Warm, sticky, chewy and well worth the 555calories -! The ice cream was delicious and the sauce sweet. We got two spoons and shared so didn't consume as much calories really. We were full after our feast and very satisfied. I have tried the ice cream
Pizza Hut on Argyle Street is great for a bite to eat. The food is cooked well and there is lots of dishes to choose from. We paid around £33.00 for our food and drinks which I feel is reasonable given how happy we were. The service was good and the location is perfect for a bite to eat whilst out shopping. It does seem to be the busiest Pizza Hut in the City Centre from experience but most convenient as we like to shop in that area of Glasgow.
The nachos could have been doing with more cheese but other than that the food was good. The service we received was good but I do grudge paying so much for pizza even if it is delicious! We paid by cash but they accept debit cards and bring the machine to your table.
Thanks for reading :)
