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.
