Why do restaurants change their menus? Do they think they’re cool, mixing things up and throwing off anyone that goes there expecting the food they are accustomed to? I’m sure this “surprise” may come as a positive for some people, but for the rest it is frequently a disappointment. Especially when it comes to nachos.Read More
Some days you wake up, go down to the nacho well to get your tri-monthly commentary, reel up that old wooden bucket in expectation of some nice, cool writings, and find that it’s completely empty. Not just empty, but bone dry, and also a cow fell in and died down there, poisoning the whole thing. Yessiree, that well is a goner, and you need to find yourself a hot new nacho source, fast. Fortunately there is one nacho well that never runs dry, so I headed down to Taco Bell to try the new Grande Nachos Box.Read More
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.
