Best Nachos on the West Side

I know...nachos are not even really Mexican food. I know...nachos are also the favorite food of your average 6-year old. I know...there is amazing Mexican food in LA so why waste my time?

But we all know, sometimes you just want good nachos. Haven't had much good luck on that front. Any recs?

  1. I love the nachos at Duke's in Malibu. Otherwise, the El Cholo ones aren't so bad.

      I suggest Viva Fresh, on Sepulveda just south of Centinella.

    2. I'm a big fan of Marix and Don Antonios. Both are massive the last is a meal for two.

      1. carne asada nachos from Chanos. No beans with an XL orange bang.

          Chanos!!! man I wish it was 2:00 AM and that i was drunk and 20 years younger. I loved their pastrami burritos and the screwball drive thru.

            Hello there fellow Trojan ;)

            Their mixup burger is also great fun. Their tacos however are worthless.

        2. If you aren't bothered by the crowd at Cabo Cantina, I like theirs. I also like the ones at Baja Fresh a lot.

          1. Baja Cantina in Venice/Marina del Rey has amazing chicken nachos. Best I have had in the LA area.

              For inexpensive mexican food, I like baja bud's for nachos.
