The West Side Nut Club Fall Festival is my favorite event of the year and I now am able to arrange my work schedule so that I may attend every night, as I did for many years in the past. This year I decided to use this opportunity to continue my quest for the best nachos by trying 9 different nachos options at this year’s festival. I opted to do a video taste-test/review of each this year, which can be found on my Facebook page called “Nachos Around the World.” Now I would like to recap my findings.
Bearing in mind that this event is a fundraiser for so many organizations, I certainly don’t want to discourage anyone from visiting each and every booth. I am just sharing my opinion of the top-rated nachos based on my taste criteria. I will review each item in the order it was originally reviewed and give each one a score from 1 to 5, with 5 being the best.
Booth 24 – Bethany Christian Church – West Side Nachos: Tortilla Chips with West Side Chili, Shredded Cheddar Cheese, Sour Cream and Jalapenos. Score 4
