Nacho Mama's review: Another Orlando dive of a restaurant winner
See that little bright green concrete block building with the broken sign, wobbly deck and rotting palm frond awning? There's a rusty metal lizard stuck to the front. That's it. Take a chance and step inside. Go on!
Charming, ain't it -- in a hole-in-the-wall, diamond-in-the-rough kinda way, right?
With both of us almost full from the nachos alone, we decided to just order a couple of tacos a la carte from the menu.
The Brisket taco ($4) was served in a flour tortilla and stuffed with shredded brisket, lettuce, cilantro and a white queso. The Shredded Pork taco ($2), Grilled White Fish ($3) and Grilled Shrimp ($3) were served in warm corn tortillas with cilantro and chopped onions. All the tacos were delicious, and we could have eaten several more at these prices. Unfortunately, the nachos did us in previously.
I love places like Nacho Mama's. With good food, big portions, good service and low prices, who cares what the place looks like or what the waitress smells like. Sometimes you just have to take a chance.
