Ok, so here I go again with another chain restaurant breaking my rules. Well this time I have a reason. Recently I saw a review of the best and worst chain nachos. So I am going to try and match that review as best I can to see if they are as good as the Hunter in reviewing nachos.
Can any one place get everything just perfect? Well in the case of Pangea, it's a solid try but being too good at one thing makes the other attributes fall a tad short. But don't get me wrong, the nachos are good, the joint jumping and the beer outstanding.
OMG! Talk about having high expectations. I have been going to Buffalo Bill's for ages but it has been well over three years since my last visit. This is home to what is considered by many to be the birthplace of micro brewing in the US or at least the West Coast. It is also a place that has served up great pub food to locals and the college crowd too. It was a slow Monday so sat by the window thinking if it was only a nice sunny day. This joint has very different crowds depending on the time and day of the week. That said the quality of the beer and food never disappoints. Please cut me some slack as this was one of the first videos I did and never really felt it was worth publishing but just love this place. Try to look past the presentation and see for yourself how great these nachos look.
This is a regular place for me as it was close to my work. for over 10 years I have eaten here probably 20+ times and had the nachos 7-8 of them. You will see I was surprised at the portion but as it turns out they sized it for one, not the standard platter for 3-4. Price however was the same so that effected the value in my score. The standout for St Hames is the venue, it is just a great place to eat, even when it's packed with people dancing to Salsa on a Sunday evening. There is enough room outside for a group to hand out and drink beer with their nachos. Speaking of beer, there are plenty of options both on tap and in the bottle at St James. On to the nachos: The chips are solid and stood up well, not exceptional but good enough to last. The chicken was good but I have had moister in the past; and the toppings are as expected. In the past I have been given the FULL platter when ordering for one and toppings were already on, having everything on the side is ok but not what I like. Please don't pass this place up if you are in the area. It's worth the ping pong, two large bars and the perpetual sunshine we get here on the peninsula.
