Per request from the Twitter Poll, 55% of you asked to see me eat nachos stoned….. so I went back to the scene of the crime and got STONED just for you. This is less of a review than it is trying to compare the sober version to the stoned one. Honestly, I think I need to do this one more time, but with a HOMEMADE platter. Had to wait an hour to drive home LOL!
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...........
My buddy David H tipped me off to this place. David said these were solid and worth the drive to SJ. Well David, I got news for you brotha. I think you need to raise the bar just a tad more. Don't get me wrong, these were some good nachos, but they did not measure up to the expectation. So let's get to it; how good were they? Iguanas was just a bit better than average for a joint that mostly does takeout for the working crowd and college students. They were priced to target that audience yet I feel they could have offered a bit larger portion to make the value better. Nothing that special about how they looked either lacking the color of salsa or red onion etc... The one bonus is the location, some good parking options and outdoor seating under some shade trees make your nacho eating experience a pleasure. Service was better than expected. With the many options, the cashier was more than glad to give a run down and make a few suggestions. The double cheese was one and I wish I had taken that option. I was also able to check out the restroom and can report it was very clean. If you were in the area for a meeting, or FANIME or taking a class at city collage then this joint is within walking distance and would be a good bet, even with the large variety of competition for your dollars. David.... next time I'm taking you for some serious nachos, just so you know where I'm coming from :) .
