On board you’ll find the best nachos in town.


I developed a curiosity for nachos a couple of years ago, after it frequently popped up on #foodstagram. Later when I uploaded pictures of my own, I realized it was a popular appetizer even amongst my friends. Once trapped in the trend, I noticed my nachos were either really good or just…terrible.

Based on my experiences, I’ve created this list of the best nachos, so you know what to expect when you say, “And a plate of nachos, please.”DSC_7270-copy

Firegrill Nachos, Firegrill

A puree of tangy guacamole worked well with their very crispy nachos chips. I liked the crispiness chopped onions added to the salsa – proof that it was fresh! There was a little something missing, but it’s easy to overlook because it’s so cheap.

Southwest Nachos, Steakhouse

A large plate of crispy nachos topped with lots of sour cream, cheese, spring onions and jalapenos? – #truelove. It was difficult to stop eating once I got the taste of it. The waiting experience wasn’t my favorite part, but I like the idea of dedicating an entire meal to this particular plate of nachos.

This is probably the most minimal nachos on the list. Paired with a cheesy sauce, the chips are very crispy, yellow (yes, the color stood out!) and full of the distinct tortilla chips flavor. This is perfect as an appetizer that’s light in terms of flavor variety.

Buffalo Chicken Nachos, Buffalo Wings and Rings

This fusion of our two favorite appetizers (buffalo wings and nachos) is the best of both worlds. Topped with spicy boneless wings, slices of black olives, melted cheese and jalapeno garnish, this nachos is a full meal in itself.

What a grand plate of nachos! A cheesy crown of very crispy nachos and spicy chicken surrounded scoops of sour cream, guacamole and salsa sauce. We were quite impressed by the variation in tastes it offered; we ate it all. #satisfied
