So I have mentioned a few time that I was taken by and editorial that ranked the best chain restaurant nachos and that I wanted to see for myself just how good they were. Not off of the ranked establishments are local to me but I am working through the list and will substitute if I can. This trip takes me to Applebee’s, a combination family restaurant and happy hour style bar for the “office space” crowd. So here is how it went….
Ok, so the title is really being nice. If you needed something just to keep you alive for another day, then sure eat what they call nachos. If you have read some of my reviews or seen a YouTube video then you know I try to find something redeeming about every nacho experience, gut in this case I for the life of me can’t see a damn thing. So how did I get here? For years I have driven down Laurel Street and kept saying, “when am I going to try this place”, and it looks cool, bet sitting on the patio with some nachos would be a nice experience. Well one day I had the time and was seriously hungry. I also had to keep in the area to see my wife later in the day.
Sooooo…….. From the moment I walked in everything started to go South. Let’s review:
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!
It was on a slow Taco Tuesday that I got the notion to venture out and get some nachos. Yes, I know, it’s “taco” Tuesday not nacho Tuesday but that’s how the Nacho Hunter does it. In the end, this is a must try nacho joint if you are in the bay area.
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.
