Chunky’s Cinema Pub in Nashua, NH: Lights, Camera, Nachos!

16 Dec

Despite the narrow subject matter of this blog, the ladies of Nacho Patrol have a wide variety of divergent interests.  And when as many of those interests (sports, African politics, Morgan Freeman, Matt Damon’s rear end) collide in an orgy of awesomeness as they do in Invictus, we jump at the chance to combine them with our first, true love.  Enter Chunky’s Cinema Pub in Nashua, NH, a mecca for those who like to combine the holy trinity of drinking beer, eating nachos, and watching movies.  From the comfort of your leather easy chair, you hit a table-top light to attract your server and order off of their expansive, movie-themed menu, and then have the food delivered to your table.  Sounds like heaven, right?  Well, let’s save that judgment for the Mission Impossible Nachos:

  • Appearance: (7) The movie had started by the time these babies arrived and we had to wait until the photo review.  Verdict: pretty OK, but not as vibrant and gooey as they could have been.  Our spirits dropped a little at the sight of the dreaded lettuce.
  • Quality of Ingredients:  (7) The chili had some of the largest chunks of ground meat we had ever seen! At one point, we came across one that was easily 1/4 the size of a standard hamburger.  It was almost too much of a good thing!  The chips were standard, pretty tasty.  The cheese was good but got cold fast… although we have to admit, we weren’t paying strict attention to the nachos once Matt Damon’s glutes were ten feet tall on the screen in front of us.
  • Distribution of Toppings: (7) Placing the sour cream and salsa in such tiny containers made them nearly impossible to access.  The aforementioned hardening of the cheese made it difficult to extract chips full of toppings, leaving us with lonely bits of chili and cheese.  Forks, and the chunky chili, helped us to solve this conundrum, and overall it was not a huge drawback…
  • Price: (9) Well, let’s do some math…$9.29 for the nachos, but if you count the $2 we saved on the movie ticket compared to Boston prices, and the fact that a large pitcher of Sam Seasonal was only $11.50…pretty damn cheap!
  • Overall: 30.  A solid nacho, but not the main attraction here.  Chunky’s is definitely worth the drive, especially if one makes a pit stop at the NH State Liquor Store…

    I have to say, I’m a little disappointed a theater cafe got such a high ranking. My childhood memories of those places tend to be…less than pleasant.
