Nosh On These Half-Dozen Nachos In Bergen County
Celebrate everyone’s favorite Mexican-inspired snack with the best of the best nachos in Bergen County.
You may have celebrated National Guacamole Day back in September, but what’s guac without the chips to dip in it? National Nachos Day is Nov. 6, a day dedicated to one of America’s favorite salty snacks. Whether you like yours topped with meat or beans, eat ’em while watching the game or as a precursor to dinner, you simply cannot have nachos without cheese. And a lot of it.
To celebrate the day of dressed-up tortilla chips, stop by any of these local Bergen County spots that have delicious nachos worth trying:
Allendale Bar & Grill, Allendale. This family-friendly spot has traditional nachos “piled high,” as well as Irish nachos. Instead of guac, pico de gallo and beans, this variety is topped with bacon, scallions and cheddar jack cheese.
*67 W. Allendale Ave., Allendale, 201.327.3197
Blue Moon, Englewood and Wyckoff. If you’re looking for a healthier twist on the Mexican staple, try Blue Moon’s vegetarian zucchini nachos, featuring zucchini rounds instead of chips and topped with beans, pico de gallo, avocado, cilantro and melted cheese. For those who want more traditional nachos, the Nachos De Luna are just as tasty!
