Best Nachos in Toronto?

I would love to hear where your favourite nachos are to be found and enjoyed?
Also, would like to know approximate prices and selection (veggies, chicken or chili beef?)
Thank you!

  1. I have really enjoyed the nachos at the Blake House, they're actually potato chips (house fried) but their sour cream is to die for, and the stout beef chili on top is really addictive. Probably my fav nacho dish in the city, though I do know they're not "authentic". Theyre priced well at about 13$ but its not a huge portion like at some pubs.
    I also really like the pulled pork nachos at the green dragon on Kingston rd. I dont recall the price but they're probably around the $15 mark but you get much more. They do a good job with layering the toppings, and I like the pork on top, as apposed to their chili which I have also tried and it was seriously tasteless.
    Cam's place also has decent nachos if you like pulled pork (and obviously I do). What I like about theirs is that they toss the pork in the bbq sauce so its really moist, but their home made salsa is really terrible, and in general, its not a great spot in my opinion.
    Utopia also has amazing nachos which can be veggie, chicken, steak, shrimp or the "utopia" which is what I always get because it has steak, chicken and guac. The price ranges from 11-15$ and is really good value in my opinion.
    And then of course there is sneaky dees which are absolutely insane and you can basically order then with anything or everything you want, but you're looking at about 15$ish.
    I am sure I will think of some more favourites in the city as others post.. for a girl who's lactose intolerant, I do indulge in nachos more often than I should.

      Always been a fan of the chorizo nachos at La Hacienda.

    2. I may have to give up my Chowhound poster status, but for the love of peaches, I do adore The Keg's nachos.

          I can't help it. The nachos at the Keg are my dirty little secret, so to speak. Nothing else, just the nachos

          1. re: CocoaChanel

            Oh Cocao - I'm a Keg fan too. The Wheatsheaf used to have great nachos (haven't had in a few years) - evenly spread on a metal pan (not too embarrassingly big if you are eating them on your own) with good cheese & topping distribution and a low price point ($7.99 or $8.99 with a side of chili). The Firkin on King is latest fav - but you have to order the sour creme/guac/salsa on the side - so you don't have a mountain (and soggy chips).

            1. re: CocoaChanel

              Which Keg? That makes a big difference. Love the name CocoaChanel!

              1. re: cinderelladressmaker

                :) Thanks

                The ones at the West Mall are consistently good. And the Yonge & Eg Keg, also good

              2. re: CocoaChanel

                That's so funny! I feel exactly the same way. The nachos are the only thing I will eat @ the Keg and they are so good. I actually crave them they're so good!!

                  I have been DYING to start a thread about "dirty little (food related) secrets". I really believe there are many gems out there that people are reluctant to share. Either they are embarrassed to admit it, or just want to keep them to themselves...

                  Thanks for the nacho tip.

                  1. re: PoppiYYZ

                    Keg Nachos vs. Sneaky Dee's Nachos.

                    To be fair, I haven't found a toenail or flies in any food at Sneaky Dee's...

            2. By the way, I have had the $20 nachos at Hard Rock Cafe and they sucked.

              1. Against the grain had a huge nacho portion with tons of chicken. Taste was decent while warm.
                The Football factory has freshly fried nacho chips that set them apart from the other I have tried.

                  Thanks elvisahmed! I have a friend who loves that place. I will definitely try them there.

                    No Problem. Here are the pics as well
                    The first one with the Chicken are from Against The Grain

                      Wow, you win the prize for detail! I love detail and am so visual!
                      Thank you so very much elvisahmed! You make this very tempting! Cheers!

                      1. re: elvisahmed

                        I also second against the grain. I forgot about that one, but they were damn good.

                  2. Hernando's Hideaway used to be the best but I haven't been back in many many years. Same style as Sneaky Dee's with one layer on a large metal pizza pan. I hate when they are mounded on a dinner plate.

                    1. re: crawfish

                      Sneaky Dee's basic nachos with a couple of add ons are my favourite traditional style in the city. Usually add beans and jalapenos. The infamous King's Crown there seems to be the most popular but I find it turns into a gloppy mess about half way through. Similar issues to it being all globbed on a small plate instead of spread out on the flat tray like they do with the basic nachos. I've ordered them to go and they come in a pizza box.

                      For non-traditional the Spicy Mac & Cheese nachos at Kitch are a guilty pleasure. It's got melted cheddar on the nacho chips, thick cut smoked bacon and a creamy, spicy mac & cheese on top, with a spicy ketchup to dip in. Sounds weird but incredibly good.

                      1. re: abigllama

                        At Sneaky's we go for bacon and black beans. SO good.

                        1. re: crawfish

                          Yes! If you keep it at two or three extras they're perfect!
