Nachos Grande, $11.95

HOWDY Y’ALL! ROOTIN’ TOOTIN’ RIP SNORTIN’ COWBOYS N’ REDNECKS IS A COUNTRY REDNECK BAR IN FEDERAL HILL AND THEY HAVE NACHOS!!! YEEHAW! RIDE ‘EM COWBOY! AND SO FORTH!

Yeah so these nachos come with some sort of home made chips I think, a lot of cheese (hardly any naked chips, that’s good), roasted jalapenos, black beans, pico and a homemade chili referred to on the menu as “Texan Chili” which I guess means it’s either made by a Texan or contains real pieces of Texan. Either way, the mixture of ingredients is solid, nicely coated chips with toppings and a serving large enough to serve two or more without hesitation. The cheese is very cheesy to boot, with a blend of queso as well as melted cheese, which is always better than simply relying on one over the other; cooperation and teamwork make cheese pretty rad.

However, these nachos do have some odd flaws that preclude them from greatness. The chips are extremely salty and coated with some strange seasoning that overpowers the rest of the toppings at times. And the chili was sort of all over the place, ingredients (such as onion leaves) laying across six chips in huge chunks rendering them incapable of scoopage, big chunks of beef swimming in a soupy chili base that didn’t really jibe with the rest of the tapestry. A nice addition in the form of chili, but go back to the drawing board when it comes to putting this stuff on those overseasoned chips, C&R.

In all, these are some decent enough nachos, maybe toss on some gaucamole and an option for chicken and they’d be better. For now, they’re neither an avoid or a direct sell.
