A Search for the Perfect Nachos: Barley Mill

September 28th, 2009 by Nathan Atnikov

It’s got to be hard to get innovative when it comes to nachos. There really isn’t that much you can do. Chips, cheese, sour cream, salsa, some veggies – that’s about it. However, there’s one server at the Barley Mill in Eau Claire who had an idea that I’d never thought of – “hey, why don’t you get the sauces on the side so they don’t get soggy?” Admittedly, I had never even thought of this, but it really changed the whole nacho experience. Imagine getting to the very bottom of the nachos, and the chips are still crisp and stable enough for dipping? This was quite the experience. The Barley Mill scores huge marks for approach, even if the nachos were, well, standard nachos.

GetDown started this search for Nachos a couple of weeks ago, hoping to find an innovative and surprising approach to nachos. Well, so far we’ve come up to pretty empty. Though The Palomino does deserve honorable mention. Now we’re calling on you, the reader, for recommendations. Where should we go for a unique nacho experience?

Comment on this post with suggestions, and we’ll report on our findings!
