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.

The nachos were excellent. The restaurant was slightly too loud for nice, easy conversation, but not so loud I wouldn't come here again.

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.

The server forgot to bring several items on our order. One entree came out 25 minutes after the rest. Drinks took an extremely long time. Very disappointing food and service.

We visited the one in Las Vegas, not sure how we were going to like this place. It was amazing! They told us that there was a restaurant in Salt Lake as well, so we went to check it out once we got back! So good! Small dining area, but the food is amazing, the servers are all so welcoming, and very friendly, such a fun place to dine! We made reservations to go back next weekend and to take some friends! We recommend Nacho Daddy! This is our new favorite place, the nachos and the Quesadillas are amazing!

Pros - We were seated right away and our servers was attentive.
Cons - When I think of nachos, I think of chips and cheese first and then the toppings. My nachos had very little cheese and the cheese they did have, was melted on just a few chips. The music was way to loud and it was hard to hear our servers, especially since they wear masks and our server had an accent. The rest of my party also felt like their food was so-so.

It was basically what you would expect from a Nacho joint. Good nachos, mediocre atmosphere. On this night the service was poor. Apparently they only had one server and the bartender because employees called in but it was busy. Our server forgot the appetizer which she brought after the food and gave us for free. The manager brought out the food more than an hour after we were seated and he continued to apologize. Maybe we were there on an off night but if I had a choice I would get nachos from twigs over this place any time. I would go probably go back and try it again. We will just have to see.

We tried to get in for a reservation when visiting vegas, but they never even called our name on the waiting list, so when we found out we had one here in SL, we were pretty excited. We made a reservation for Valentine's Day in the late afternoon. We got right in and the staff was great! Our server was attentive and we received our food quickly, hot and fresh. We started out with the queso and salsa. The queso was disappointing. It was kind of runny and had a plastic taste to them, like velveta. The cheeseburger and Supreme Tostada Nachos were a little disappointing after being hyped up about them. Their claim is not a dry chip, however we had quite a few dry chips. Not a big deal, but just wasn't as good as we expected. However, their fish tacos were super good. The rice and beans they came with were pretty good as well. We will definitely go back for those. Our friends had the shrimp tacos and wings and they loved those too. So, next time, we will skip the nachos and the queso and just stick with the fish and shrimp tacos. Also, a little pricey for what you get.

The music playlist was on point! The service was great, waiters/waitresses were not overbearing. I really liked the filet mignon nachos (I would’ve liked for them to be less sweet and more cheesy and maybe a little spicy). BUT overall great taste!

The service was incredibly slow. We were seated for 15 minutes before anyone came to our table to take our drink order. At that point, we were ready to order drinks and our meals. After ordering our drinks, another half hour passed and we had not gotten our drinks yet. We asked for our drinks a second time and then finally got them. We got our food one hour after being seated. There were only 4 people in our party, so there is no reason for the long delays.

I have been here 3 times, the first two were exceptional experiences. I boasted to my family members, and took them out for a Christmas Eve dinner, which was a disaster. There were 6 of us eating, 3 got there meals, and the next 3 weren’t served for over 30 minutes! We were in the restaurant for almost 3 hours, and the server seemed either inept or coming down off drugs. And I don’t understand how it happened, there was hardly anyone dining in, which in the past the place was packed and bustling. I did see about 10 guys in the kitchen standing around, and I wonder how they got two of our orders wrong in such an extended period of time with that much manpower available. Nacho Daddy has lost its mojo for me... I’ll never dine there again... I can definitely find a better way to throw away $200.00!
