Who has the best nachos in the entire Yakima Valley? That is kind of a loaded question, don't you think? (Pun intended.) There are so many nachos to choose from, so little time. I just want to eat the BEST of nachos, not the ones that make me say, "Meh." I'm looking for nachos so good they would even make Nacho Libre take a bite.

I asked my friends on Facebook for their suggestions for the best nachos we can find in the Yakima Valley and their answers did not disappoint!


Strawberry Nachos

A&B Native American Cuisine

208 S Toppenish Ave, Toppenish, WA

My friend, Travis Lucky Bob, who owns A&B Native American Cuisine, makes these Strawberry Nachos that look absolutely yummy! I had no idea he and his wife, Andrea, even made something like that! I haven't tried it yet, but if they are half as good as those bomb a** Fry Bread Supremes that he makes, I am sure it's delicious. And it's budget friendly because it's only $5!


Pulled Pork Nachos

Kim's Got Smoke Mobile Food Truck

2319 Rudkin Rd, Union Gap, WA (Across from the Outback Steakhouse restaurant)
Call for hours: (509) 945-1607

I have loved taco nachos for the longest time--until i tried pulled pork nachos. Now they are my ultimate fave kind of nachos. But my pulled pork nachos have to have a bunch of stuff on top. Stuff like, fresh diced onions, sour cream, salsa. Kim's Got Smoke is where I had my first taste of pulled pork nachos ($13.50) and I'm telling you, I fell in love, y'all!

Nachos for everyone!

The Pub of Yakima 

5110 Tieton Dr, Yakima, WA

My friend Carol says her favorite nachos are at The Pub. I have never tried their nachos but looking at the menu makes me want to go there right now! The nachos at The Pub have ground beef, black beans, pepper jack cheese, cheddar cheese, pico de gallo, jalapenos, and sour cream. YUM.


Thai Nachos

WaterFire Restaurant 

4000 Creekside Loop, Yakima, WA
I forgot just how much I love the Thai Nachos at WaterFire! One time my crush took me there for lunch and I ordered the nachos. They were so good and he was so cute that I had to ask for a to-go box so that I could scarf them down in peace! Thai Nachos at WaterFire are one-of-a-kind and so TWANGY that your tastebuds will water up and make you say, "Sugar, pass the peach sweet tea!" in a Southern accent. Here's what is in their distinctive nachos: GOLDEN WONTONS! The wontons are smothered in chicken drenched in a Thai-inspired sauce plus basil, ponzu (whatever that is, I have forgotten already), jalapenos, cheese, peanuts that have been roasted along with a peanut sauce, and slaw. I told you they were truly unique!

Nachos con Carne, Asada, or Supreme

Xochimilco Mexican Restaurant 

5110 Tieton Dr #270 in Glenwood Square in Yakima, WA or 2529 Main St Suite D24 in Union Gap, WA

My friend Lisa thinks Xochimilco's nachos are the bomb, as the kids say. She didn't say which version of their nachos she likes but Xochimilco's offers three different varieties: With ground beef (carne), Asada (grilled beef), or supreme. I'm guessing the Supreme Nachos come topped with sour cream?

Nachos Nayarit

Mariscos Nayarit 

606 S 36th Ave, Yakima, WA

My FB pal John says the nachos at Mariscos Nayarit are the best. I checked out there menu somebody posted online and the description leaves me ready to taste these flavorful nachos for myself. Check this out: nachos "served w/your choice of chicken or beef, beans, jalapenos, onions, tomatoes, guacamole, cilantro, and sour cream."
