Searching for the Best Nachos in Dallas
|Spiral Diner Nachos Supremos. That's not cheese and we don't care.|
Nachos Supremos $9.50
If you haven't tried these before, vegan nachos probably invite skepticism. That skepticism is unwarranted though: These are amazing. Strange as it sounds, the olives, quinoa, and black beans are a rich substitute for chili and refried beans. But the most incredible part is the "cheese," which is just a sauce made from cashews and bell peppers. It tastes just like decadent nacho cheese without any of the subsequent sluggishness. Possibly the tastiest nachos on the Nachodyssey.
Angry Dog Nachos. Simplicity.
Nachos $7.50, Half Order $4.75
At Angry Dog the emphasis is on simplicity and deliciousness, winning "Best Nachos" in years past from the Observer. Beans, cheese, chicken and/or beef, topped with guacamole, sour cream and jalapeños. As straightforward as nachos come, and while there was a cache of dry chips underneath, the satisfying corniness of the chips and ample, succulent chicken more than makes up for distribution problems.
And so ends our first voyage. There are some glaring omissions, to be sure. We have no barbecue nachos in this list, only because in all honesty we can only eat so many nachos in a 36-hour period. We have no doubt missed your favorite. Please share it with us so we can include it in following entries to the Nachodyssey.
