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 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.
