For a first review, I had high hopes for this place. When you walk in the door, you are greeted with awesome and colorful decor. Each table has its own theme of colorful chairs. Then, once the nachos arrived, I was impressed with the chip quality, a hearty yellow corn chip that I wasn’t worried would get soggy and nasty. The key ingredient to the chips was the Diablo sauce, and on first taste it was a delicious addition to the full nacho recipe. However, the amount of sauce dwarfs most of the other ingredient amounts, so towards the end of the nachos you encounter a bunch of chips with just sauce.
Layering was not good, all the ingredients were thrown on top, and the sour cream and guacamole were just tossed on in two little piles. I get the idea of letting people scoop their own ingredients, but in practice it doesn’t work. If you don’t trust that guacamole and sour cream should go on your nacho recipe, just put it on the side.
Overall, a cool place and good ingredients, but subpar execution.
