nacho reviews in Union Square, Murray Hill and Gramercy. This page is a little sparse, so please suggest a restaurant today.
Today, I am officially putting Yelp on notice. You’ve been warned before (Greenwich Street Tavern). I keep trusting you, so when I read, “The nachos are phenomenal (around $8) and are perfectly piled so you get a little bit of goodness on every chip. And, guac comes with the nachos – none of this pay extra for guac business,” I believed you.
The Avett Brothers played their second show in New York City on Saturday. Most of the “Nacho Collective” was in attendance for the third night of the ‘Chos and Shows Festival. Unofficially renamed “Screw You Bonnaroo,” Julia, Jason, Chris and I basked in the raw energy of TAB and feasted upon nachos following the show, not once, but TWICE all in an evening for the ages.
After a strange tweetup, I won’t name any names (cancelled tv show), I took Julia, a new to NY nacho lover and soon to be Nacho correspondent of some kind, to Blind Pig on suggestion from a friend.
We arrived and were given a seat on lovely 14th st, so we could watch drunk kids walk by after a free pizza at the Crocodile Lounge. We ordered the nachos and no drinks, the waitress, was unimpressed, still NACHOS:
With the skies blue and a mild wind flowing, I decided to push a little north in Manhattan. We made it up to 27th Street, just across the way from Rodeo. I had seen on their online menu, nachos for about $5 and I was incredulous, and rightfully so. When I got there, I noticed that their standard nachos were no more than chip, cheese, beans.
I was a little early and decided that I would fully and definitely have them add guacamole, sour cream, pico de gallo, and jalapenos. Shortly after, Ali appeared ready for her first nacho night.
This post could have been terribly angry due to the strangely poor service. The girl at the counter gave me the wrong burrito, gave my burrito to some guy and then told me I was wrong, but lucky for you, this is a Nacho blog, not an “Am I happy at a Restaurant” blog. So, let’s move on.
