The base for a plate of nachos is the chip; it is the single most important component followed by cheese and meat. The other component is what kind of experience you can have when getting your nachos. All that said, the leadup experience to my nachos today was better than the end result.
Old habits are hard to break; so who the fuck wants to mess with that!!!!! I have been to El Metate more times than I can count. It was just around the corner from work for eight years. So when I was striking out all over town (Hunting for Nachos) I just pulled in and got a solid plate from a reliable source...........
This is from my 2015 road trip that covered Utah, Arizona, New Mexico and Nevada. This is my first try at doing a slide show and shortening the presentation. Please let me know what you think of the format. If you ever get out to Southern Utah for some hiking then Zion is a MUST and so is Oscar's even if you don't get the nachos. If you do, then plan on sharing with 3-4 folks like the guys at the table next to me did. I got a big thumbs up from them as well. SERVICE: Great service from the staff that looked like mostly college students so please tip well. Our waiter did not skip a beat and it was a full house with a few demanding tourists as well (I hate loud obnoxious tourists). AMBIENCE: Oscars is a fun place, suitable for families, couples; only the very snooty folks would want another option. I would suggest waiting for an outside table unless weather prohibits it. VALUE: The price is great given the quality of the chips and meat, as well as the abundant toppings. Also, not that this is a tourist town and many dining options are very overpriced. TASTE: Awesome for the Nacho Hunter. I got most of my favorites spot on. The beans had a rich flavor, pork well seasoned, and tri-color chips!!! APPEARANCE: The little extras of corn and diced tomato blended with tri-color chips in a Southwestern style bowl gave this platter a decided edge.
Ok, so it was a nice sunny day I knew that Sancho's had really good tacos from previous visits, so I figured the nachos would be just as good. The tricky thing about nachos is that what looks like a great at first can go bad very fast. Note that i gave some nice average marks for this review. The taste was good, the settings was ok, they looked good at first, but they just forgot the number one rule in nachos; IT'S ALL ABOUT THE CHIPS!!!! Your chips must be crunchy and be able to hold up for at least the majority of the meal. There should never be a pool of liquid at the bottom of the plate. I may go back one day and give these guys a second chance but with so many other choices in that area it could be a few months. If any Hunters have a better experience there please do a second review or make a comment below.
