I like Mezcal Tequila Cantina. I like Nachos. I like Barbacoa Pork. So when I last went to Mezcal Tequila Cantina and saw they had Barbacoa Pork Nachos on their menu I thought God had answered my prayers. Then I saw that there were plantain chips on them, with the possibility that they had used them to replace the corn chips, and thought it might actually be the Devil. This was a mystery I had to solve.Read More
This weekend marked the passing of renowned Luchador Silver King, A.K.A. César Cuauhtémoc González Barrón, who passed away from an alleged heart attack during the Greatest Show of Lucha Libre in London. Silver King gained notoriety in the nacho world in, if not the nacho film we deserve then at least the nacho film we have, “Nacho Libre” playing the villainous Ramses. Fellow Mexican wrestler El Hijo del Santo wrote on Twitter: "I deeply regret the death of my great rival and partner in so many battles. He went as he wanted: fighting." You don’t get much better a memorial tweet than that.Read More
All good things must one day come to an end. Day turns to night. Months end. Years wind down. The sun will burn out. Eventually there will come the heat death of the universe and entropy will rule over all. Also, and most importantly, whenever you eat an order of nachos you will eventually finish it and you will have no more.
The same will one day also come to Nachonomics. As we are here at the beginning of our seventh year we must look back at all the good times, but also look forward to the eventual end of the site. Undoubtedly one evening we'll be sitting down with a dish of nachos in front of us, suffer a heart attack as our blood is mostly liquid cheese, and go face down into them. I can't think of a more fitting death, or way to end the site.
But that's not happening today, or anytime soon, so don't worry! We're going stronger and more nachoey than ever and still have YEARS more nacho coverage to go. Realistically not an infinite amount of time, but still years for sure. Plus, due to the rate of medicinal technology it's highly possible that we'll have little nacho loving robots running around in our blood to clean it out before inevitable cheese death becomes a reality, so win-win!
Yes folks, we're still going strong, and will continue to do so, so keep checking in for more nacho goodness on any day of the month with a "5" in it. Thanks for sticking around for the ride.
Like sands through an hourglass, Taco Bell is releasing a two more nacho variations to their menu. Sadly not the ones we were all looking forward to, but instead just take offs of their soft taco. Between the new Loaded Nacho Taco and the new Spicy Loaded Nacho Taco, one of these is just a luke-warm rehash, and the other changes the fast food nacho taco combo game. But which is which?
You ever have one of those days where you end up working for 10 and a half straight hours and then when you leave are exhausted but see that The Shining is playing at a theater nearby in an hour so you drive and get there thirty minutes early only to find that the app you used to check movie times was wrong and it is actually starting in two hours so now you’ve got an hour and a half to kill and the restaurant in the actual theater doesn’t have nachos so you walk over to the nearby Red Robin to get a burger because you didn’t think they had nachos but it turns out that they actually do so you figure you have to get them because you write for a nacho review site and you need to try new nachos because that’s how you generate reviews?Read More
