Taco Bell Crunchwrap Slider

If you’re hungry, it’s food. I got the “new!” spicy beefy nacho slider.

I do like the griddled tortilla. And they’re cheap. If you’re hungry, eat one. Or two. Seriously, they’re not bad.



Guest Review – Landmark Americana

El Jefe de Nachos returns to Nachojawn’s pages after his previous review of Bainbridge Street Barrel House. Joined by friend La Ragin’ Cajun, the pair hit up happy hour up by Drexel. I’ll give them the floor – and remember, all opinions that follow are those of the guest reviewers, and them only:

Did you know that the average sodium intake for a 25 year old person is 2100 mg? Imagine that times 2 and you have Landmark’s nachos. Pair that with a beer though, and you’ve got yourself a pretty good happy hour.

The perfect amount of cheese and jalapeños counterbalances the sour pico de gallo that’s piled on top, and if you add chicken it’s a solid 4 1/2 out of 5 on the pickled jalapeño chart.

Dave & Busters

Nachojawn Jr. headed out to Dave & Buster’s to celebrate his birthday a few weeks ago. After all the fun and games, we sat down to some burgers, pretzel dogs, chicken bites, soda towers, and these bad boys.

These are the Mountain O’ Nachos — fresh tortilla chips piled high and smothered with spicy ground beef & melted queso, topped with black beans, jalapenos, tomatoes, lettuce, fresh guacamole and sour cream.
You can do a lot worse than Dave and Busters. With all the food we barely put a dent in these, but consensus was that we were pleasantly surprised. I still don’t like the ice cream scoopers of sour cream and guacamole though.
Mountain O’ Nachos – $10.99
3.76/5 pickled jalapeños – Eat these after some pop-a-shot basketball, but wash your hands first

Chicago Style Nachos

From FON Señor Zubaz, straight out of La Ciudad Ventosa, come these Chicago Style Nachos.

Deep-dish pizza nachos

Chicago hot dog nachos

Putting hot dogs on nachos – yay or nay?

Any other city-specific nachos out there? I know there’s a cheesesteak nacho at Citizens Bank Park, but do we have crab nachos on Maryland’s Eastern Shore? Elk nachos in Wyoming? Lobster nachos on Cape Cod?

No Nacho Content – Snap Custom Pizza

Replacing the burger joint 500 Degrees is the fast casual  Snap Custom Pizza.

For $7.99 for a decent sized pizza you can pick one of their suggestions or go with your own combo of toppings.

I got the Mexique, which isn’t a nacho and didn’t really taste Mexican.

It was fresh and quick, and a perfectly serviceable lunch. But like with my nachos, I don’t think I like bbq sauce on my pizza. There’s a lot more options to work through, thankfully.
