Ok, so this is a little bit after the fact but The Hunter has been busy eating :) This past May 5th was punctuated by a great lunch with my best buddy Jesse G. I was early and he tends to run late so I felt I may as well start with the Monthly flight of Tequila. Cocina has an amazing selection and very knowledgable staff so I highly recommend this place just on that fact alone. The Hunter really tested them, and consumed a solid four shots and a beer. (ok so maybe not drunk, but well buzzed for sure). So let’s talk NACHOS!
I have eaten at this establishment a few times. LuLu’s sits between a Deli / Coffee house and a Burger joint and a few small retail business just off Sand Hill Road. I was going to dad’s but wanted to eat first so I stopped in on a nice sunny weekday for a late lunch.
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.
This is a neighbourhood taqueria that serves up some amazing burritos and pretty good nachos too. Due to my schedule I had limited time for nachos but as it is NND I had to stop in where I could. Note this today's experience was not as good as those in the past. About 6mos ago I had much better, but we don't really could the best time, it's the time you go to review.
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 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.
There are those days when your brain says, MORE IS BETTER, and it's right!!! However when presented with the following, maybe you better bring backup. The only item on this list that The Nacho Hunter has attacked, is the Margheritavill's platter in Las Vegas. ... and YES I did eat all of it. Anyone out there who has attempted the others please submit a full review.
