El Tour Del Nacho (A.K.A. Nacho Patrol) began formally in September 2008 by the fine women of the 144 and a few hungry friends. Our mission is simple: to eat our way through the nachos of Boston in hopes of finding that mythical 40/40 score. Since our inception, we’ve branched out from Boston to include reviews from across the globe. All scores are based on a rubric set down on the Official Rules page, governing our consumption of, our companions for, and our compassion toward a nacho plate.

    We really need to strap Harrison on our bikes one of these days so he can participate in a review.

    Hey Girls,

    I found your Nacho Blog online and liked all of your posts. The main reason I found you was because I was doing a search on Nacho Reviews, and although they’re hard to find, I wanted to find as many like minded people as I could. 😀 I started a Nachos site before ever knowing there were others. I’m in Southern California. Right now it has mainly Nachos Reviews/Rankings but I want to make it all about the ins and outs of Nachos. I added you on my site for others to see, I hope that’s ok. I have two types of revies on my site, and in one of them I use (and credit) your ranking system, which is awesome. I’m still starting off but I’m already backed up on reviews on the site. Check it out if you want.

    Keep the Nachos love alive! Love all your reviews.

    Awesome blog, Nacho Patrol.

    Though, I do feel sorry for you dedicated ladies. I spent most of my 20s in the Boston area. I lived near Comm and Harvard right off Corey Hill and was a regular at Our House for a few years. Now I’m back in my hometown of Oakland, CA.

    Anyway, I can say with experience that the pickings are pretty slim in the Boston area. I used to hit Anna’s for the quesadillas and burritos, but I don’t think they ever had nachos. A shame, because they had the raw materials to maybe do them right.

    But to even the scorecard, finding a decent steak and cheese out here is like trying to find the Holy Grail.

    My buddy Jake and I are on a quest to find the best nachos in and around Oakland. You can check out our blog at:

    Godspeed, nacho patrol.

    Hey Nacho Patrollers, a fellow nacho friend from Australia here! Did you know we are so far behind the rest of the world when it comes to nachos that most Australians dont even know what proper nacho cheese tastes like?

    They think grated cheese on soggy cornchips with tomato salsa is what nachos are! So it’s my mission in Australia to introduce my fellow Aussies to real nachos. Thanks to my countless hours of blood, sweat and tears (none of which i add to our nachos thankfully!!) I am finally in a position to be able to sell nachos all around the country. I cant believe nobody else saw such an empty space in the Australian culture and didnt think “nachos”!

    We’ve still got a long way to go to catch up to the rest of the world but i’m happy to devote my days to the cause! Long live nachos!

    PS – I would love to come on a nacho patrol with you guys around Boston and sample them first hand…one day!
