As a connoisseur of the pugilistic arts, you can imagine my delight when returning from summering on Lake George in upstate New York that I happened to drive through the town of Queensbury. I hoped that the sleepy hamlet was named after the Marquess of Queensbury, namely the 9th Marquess, John Douglas, who, while not the creater of the boxing code that bears his name was its first public endorser. Sadly the town was in fact named after Queen Charlotte, who to the best of my knowledge had zero fighting skills. this disappointment caused me to fall into a deep funk, one so deep that only nachos could get me out. In particular nachos at the local Queensbury establishment the Adirondack Bar & Grill.
I don’t know how many nacho places you’ve been to that you can drive up to on a snowmobile but the Adirondack was the first for me. Unfortunately I was driving my car (The ‘Cho and Go) and not my snowmobile (The ‘Chomobile) and couldn’t make use of this feature, but I sure would have if I could have. You could call the interior of the place “rustic”, but I think “adirondack” would be an apt and more fitting decor description with less of a negative connotation, but why would you eat indoors when you can eat on their lovely outside patio? Well simply put it gets snowy and cold in New York in the winter so you have to eat inside then, but in the summer it’s nice, so you eat outside when you can, which I did.
My nacho choices were two; the Anayan style, simply named “Nachos”, and the more loaded “Loaded Nachos”. Guess which I chose.
See, the “loaded” in this case means a regular order of nachos, plus an order of chili on top of them, plus a salad thrown on top of that. Don’t get me wrong, I like salad, and I like a little lettuce on nachos, but a whole head of lettuce on an order of nachos is just too much. TOO MUCH! “Whole head of lettuce” is of course hyperbole, but there is a lot of the old garden greens. Other than the forest I had to eat through the rest of the dish was fine. Hope you like chili because like the lettuce they don’t play around with it, and while I had no complaints with that, you and your possibly sensitive child tummy may. If you have a little baby tummy just get the regular nachos, you baby.
At $9 you get a bunch of nachos, a large enough bunch that even if you ask for them to go light on the lettuce you’ll still get your money worth. With no “5-lb Adirondack Burger” dish unique to the restaurant there is nothing that will tempt you away from these babies, assuming you like chili nachos, and frankly I don’t know why you would be here if not. Plus, you can ride up there ON A SNOWMOBILE! How many nacho places can you do that at? I mean sure, probably a few, let’s be realistic, but not many.
