Started out rough when I had made a reservation on Open Table for 6:30 but we were hungry by 4:00 so we went over to see if we could change our reservation and get in early. We stood and waited for a host for several minutes but no one acknowledged us. Went to the take out counter to ask if we could be seated and were told someone would be with us shortly. Waited several more minutes before a host did come from the back and I explained the situation. She told me we couldn't have a reservation because they didn't take reservations on the weekends (this was a Sunday). I told her I had and email confirmation of the reservation and she just reiterated they didn't take reservations on the weekends. I politely just asked if we could be seated now and she accommodated us, as the restaurant wasn't full at this time. After we were seated, I went online and cancelled the evening reservation through Open Table. The rest of the meal was fantastic! Food, wait staff, value were all good and would highly recommend this restaurant. I would also recommend the host work on guest service so the whole experience would have been enjoyable.

Food was wonderful! Service was a bit slow considering they weren't really busy when we were there. Prices are a bit higher than expected but the nachos were great! Very noisy spot right off Fremont so if you're looking for quiet this is not the place for you. Overall a pretty good experience, I would definitely go back.

Food was excellent! Service not so much. My drink was not refilled once and more importantly I specifically asked for no jalepenos and they were in my nachos anyway. I had to get another waiter to get my check.

I only reviewed the food and value because I couldn’t move on to the rest of the review without it. We never actually got to eat. When we arrived at the restaurant we told the hostess we had an open table reservation but she quickly replied that they don’t take reservations on the weekend. The wait was too long at that point so we ended up going to the pizza place down the street which ended up being quite good. So in the end, maybe it was a good thing they declined my open table reservation.

We stopped by Nacho Daddy after our morning tour at Zappos. It was a short 4 minute walk from Zappos HQ. It was pretty empty at 11 am on a Monday, so no worries about getting a table at that point. The food was fantastic! The nachos were amazing--we had the Fiesta nachos and the bacon cheeseburger nachos. The shrimp appetizer and the taco were also favorites. The service was great, as well. It's worth a stop for the nachos anytime--day or night!

The vegan food is so good. Some of the best, actually. I just wish it had a vegan burger. My non-vegan family loved the food. Drinks are strong though. And, the ability to walk around Fremont afterward is fun. A little pricey but, worth it. I can't wait to go again. Thank you.

First visit to Nacho Daddy’s while here from the UK. We chose it for their Vegan options because my wife is Vegan. Food was average to good in our opinion. The wife had the vegan chicken enchilada option....The vegan chicken was delicious but the rice was dry and tasteless. I had the Vegas Nachos which I enjoyed but not enough to make me go back in a hurry. we had hoped the food would have been better but it was still value for money. The service however was excellent, we were looked after very well and the atmosphere is great. Glad we tried it but wouldn’t be top of our list to return.

We LOVE Nacho Daddy and it's one of our "go to" places downtown when we have an event at the Smith Center. I made a reservation last week on Open Table, received my confirmation email, leaving us the usual amount of time to dine pre theater and when we arrived at the restaurant there was a taped up sign on the door stating that they were closed for a few days. There was no notice from Open Table and none from Nacho Daddy. We should have been notified so we could have made alternative plans for table service at another restaurant. But with show time fast approaching there was nothing we could do. Fast food. McDonald's. Bummer.

I ordered the beer battered fish tacos & my girlfriend ordered the chicken street tacos. The food was excellent. My fish was crispy I added a side of pico because I love that fresh flavor with fish tacos. Overall, this was a well spent meal. I will be eating here again on my next vacation to Vegas.

What a FUN restaurant! We were afraid it would be more of a "fast" food restaurant only featuring different "Nacho" platters. Boy was we surprised! Full menu, delicious food, excellent service (Thanks Rico) and fun atmosphere. It was a Mexican Restaurant/Sports Bar all wrapped into one. A great experience.

Fun place! We went for the healthiest option - chicken fajitas with wild rice and black beans. Good beer selection, but weak wine selection. Only a block north of Fremont Street.
