A Search for the Perfect Nachos: The Palomino

by Nathan Atnikov · 0 comments

If you’re heading to The Palomino to grab some nachos as a light snack, you may want to bring some friends. The $17 price tag might seem a little on the steep side at first, but The Palomino’s nachos are pretty much worth it. An extremely generous serving comes with all the usual nacho trimmings, and a big scoop of beans right in the centre. That little addition is enough to make me want to go back, especially with the option of adding pulled pork or brisket next time around.

The Palomino also offers a friendly atmosphere and a menu full of much-better-than-pub-fare food. For only the second competitor in the search for downtown Calgary’s best nachos, The Palomino has set a high bar for the rest of the area’s pubs and restaurants. The score will fall short of perfect, because there are places in the city I could spend the same amount of money on a steak.

Overall grade: A-
