El Pinto to be subject of reality show


The Associated Press

Albuquerque's El Pinto Restaurant and its identical twin brother owners have reached a deal to develop a reality show.

In a press release, El Pinto says the 1,000-seat New Mexican restaurant in Albuquerque's far North Valley was chosen for its unique setting, its onsite salsa manufacturing plant and its bachelor owners, John and Jim Thomas.

The sprawling restaurant has a number of rooms and shaded patios that has made it a favorite for locals and tourists. Pictures of the celebrities who have visited line its walls.

It is also known for its salsa, which sold in grocery stores across the country.

Media Meld Studios and Smart Skirts Entertainment are in agreement to produce the show.

El Pinto says it was chosen over nearly a million restaurants across the country.
