Best Nachos in Portland?

I just saw this topic in the L.A. board and was wondering who people think has the best nachos in Portland. I always get the nachos at Binks but I just moved right around the corner and have not had a chance to sample too many other versions around town. What do you guys think?

  1. Oy -- being from Texas, I have to say that there are no REAL nacho places in PDX. That said, one place we do like to go for nachos is Esparza's Tex Mex Cafe. What we like is that they serve them as individually dressed chips -- not a blob of chips with the blob of fake cheese and a blob of sour cream sprinkled with beans.

    I'm curious if anyone else out there knows of good nachos in Portland besides Esparza's.

      1. Related question: Are there carne asada fries anywhere in seattle or portland? I've had them in Seattle at Memo's on The Ave, but they did not even come close to SoCal carne asada fries

          No carne asada fries, but Portland does have pastrami fries at Kenny & Zukes.

        2. Another related question...any good chilaquiles in Portland? It seems like something Por Que No would do really well but I don't see it on their menu.

            Por Que No serves up chilaquiles on their weekend brunch menu. You should also try Authentica on NE Killingsworth and 30th.

          2. Getting back to the original question, I hear the nachos at the taco truck on 34th (or so) and Division are top-notch. Anyone try them?
