NachoQuest – ALPHA

Mankind has always endeavored upon the noblest of causes: clean burning energy, environmental protection, penis enlargement creams, breast enlargement creams, that kind of thing. Today I announce my intent to contribute my services to the pantheon of Makind’s legacy and discover once and forever – where can Baltimore’s best nachos be found

Truly this is a noble cause, as nachos are quite simply the raddest bar food imaginable. Cheesy, sloppy, piping hot nachos with jalapenos, meat, lettuce tomato and 76 kinds of cheese are the stuff that the most mouthwatering dreams are made of. And the internet may provide a few answers here and there, people may tell you anecdotes about how rockin’ the nachos were over at Holy Frijoles, but I’m a PhD in Nachoology and I am more than utterly qualified to decide which nachos served in Baltimore are the best.


Now, this is going to take some time. I cannot possible eat ten plates of nachos over the course of a single weekend, and I will require suggestions from you dear readers. So if you think you know where the best nachos in Baltimore are served, please feel free to suggest it via email or commentation. Otherwise, hold onto your butts kids. It’s NachoQuest.

  • My vote goes to the pulled pork BBQ nachos @ Max’s Taphouse in Fell’s Point.

    • duly noted. I’m thinking between Max’s and Birches the clash of the nacho Titans will be tremendous.

    Evan – have you contemplated doing a bracket of Nachos? Or maybe, like a bracket of ultimate bar food? Each region could be a different food… Nachos, Wings for sure, then some others could be Sliders, Chicken Fingers (kinda lame), Shellfish (shrimp/crab/mussles, etc), Potpourri, etc. The Washingtonian did a bracket to find the Best Burger in DC and it was cool. It would definitely be an undertaking. I volunteer to be a taste tester! 🙂

    Try the nachos at Riptide and Fells Point.
    They are different and excellent.

    evan, i’m thinking you have to go to annabel lee tavern over in highlandtown. the chef there used to cook for simon’s pub, which was a great bar with fantastic food that used to be located in butcher’s hill. simon’s had the best nachos (especially the salsa). simon’s was still better, but annabel’s nachos are pretty darn good, too.
