Nachos nach’yo thing? No worries – we have something for everyone, including all day breakfast, Mexican-American collisions, and a full vegan menu all of which can be paired with our fresh, housemade specialty drinks.

    We had reservations, but only after we arrived for a lunch staff meeting were we informed that they were having technical difficulties, thus we had to scramble to go somewhere else for our lunch staff meeting. Had we been informed before arrival that they were closed until 4pm this would be an entirely different review. It was not very customer service friendly experience.

    Food was great and the service was excellent but it was a little loud and the tables were pretty close together. I was almost shoulder to shoulder with the table next to me.

    The food was very good! The service was slow and they cooked my husband's food exactly the opposite of the way he ordered it. I made him send it back. The prices are a bit high but it's downtown and the food IS GOOD so that's not a big deal. I'll go back, but I'm afraid my husband won't.

    We had nachos and margaritas. Over 1/2 our chips had no cheese on them. We were sat next to the bar, and there was water leaking out from the bar all the way to our table. Bags on the ground soaked, feet soaked, our feet were in puddles. I’ve been here before and loved it. This was an incredibly disappointing experience.

    I’d give this place a B-. Got the fiesta nachos and they were just okay. Pretty soggy and not what I was expecting. Large portions and a lot of protein, but I think it was overpriced for the quality of food/flavor combos.

    The idea is really cool…but in reality the Nacho plates are small and the chips are pretty basic. One of our orders came with way more toppings than chips. We were told that there was no where in the restaurant where the noise was less, which seemed odd. We had to yell across the table.

    I had requested a booth and was offered a high top table instead. I offered to wait and despite having a reservation, two parties were seated in booths before we had a table despite coming in after us. Very confusing.

    Save yourself some money and go to Taco Bell instead. The food was flavorless and the service is terrible. The music was SO loud that our table of 4 could barely hold a conversation. Will not be going back and won’t be trying their sister restaurant Carson’s Kitchen.

    The pork carnitas nachos were super yummy! My chicken enchiladas were just ok. It is a very loud place so if you are looking for quiet this is not the place. Our service was just ok as well nothing spectacular. I think they were training some new employees so I would go back and give it another try.

    We went there for a birthday dinner. Service started out great when an eager new server started our meal. Shortly after, her trainer noticed and he pulled her off our table (it seems we weren't supposed to be her table). From then the entire experience went downhill. We went from a bubbly and friendly server to one that was well… not. The waits got long, service got slow, and food was average (pricey for middle-of-the-road nachos). We only got through one round of drinks in the hour we were there, content to make their money off low-cost foods versus alcohol I suppose. I have eaten at other Nacho Daddy locations where the caliber of food and the level of service were much better than we experienced here, so I don't know if it's the player or the game we need to hate on. But either way, it was a bummer. The quality of food, especially given the fact that nachos are supposed to be the star here (although ours were no better than made-for-tv), can be beaten by any of a hundred Mexican restaurants in the area. Next time, we'll likely choose one of them.

    Love the food at Nacho Daddy, particularly the flaming shrimp tacos, and appreciate the vegan menu for my daughter. Why, on an early Thursday evening, the music must be so loud that it is necessary to speak more loudly to be heard by dining partner directly across table is beyond me. While understandable on a busy weekend evening is this really necessary during slower times when there are fewer patrons in the restaurant?

    This Open Table system was a total failure for a reservation on New Years Eve. We arrived to find a note taped to entrance stating the restaurant was CLOSED due to staffing issues. Huge disappointment and absolutely no advance notice on any website or email system or text messaging. If you can send 2 different confirmations, why cant you send out a notice of cancellation.

    Showed up to a sign on the door "closed due to staff shortage". reservations are only a suggestion I suppose. The only email I received was to CONFIRM my reservation, not a cancellation. Ruined the night as it was New Years Eve. Thought it was irresponsible to accept reservations if there was an inkling you wouldn't have staff to support the idea. Good news, the neighboring restaurants benefited that night as there were handfuls of people showing up at the same time only to turn and head elsewhere on New Years, on a night the Jazz had a home game. Good place, 50/50 chance it will be open, you can enjoy the drive and then head over to Red Rock, or Poplar, or Market Street, or Gracies, or the Gateway

    Loved the music videos on the television sets. Refreshing Mexican mule. Good Mexican corn, similar to how my Tío Jon makes. Great nachos. We shared the Fiesta Nacho. A little overpriced IMO.

    We’ve been here 4-5 times now, each time I think it’s going to be better, that I must’ve just ordered something that was not so great. The food is bland, and flavorless. It looks awesome, but it just doesn’t taste amazing, it’s highly lacking in flavor. It’s also high priced, there’s better Mexican food to be had in the area.
