Firestone Happy Hour Nachos – Wilmington, DE

Although one of my favorite happy hour spots in Wilmington especially when it’s nice out and you can be on the River, I’ve never been a huge fan of Firestone’s food.  The nachos proved no different and although the picture looks like they were enjoyed, I spoke to other nacho fans and they also did not rate them very high so I believe the almost empty plate is a product of amount of people…not nacho taste.

Toppings: It was a very strange mix of toppings including andouille sausage, crab, shrimp, and queso.  I personally thought the sausage was chicken and someone else mentioned that they thought it was a hot dog cut up . . .  Probably not the taste they were going for.  I also realized that I enjoy shrimp a lot, but not necessarily on nachos and the queso reminded me a little of cheese whiz  0/5

Toppings to Chip Ratio:  The picture shows some extra queso but overall I think this was the strong part of the nachos  4/5

Freshness:  I think I might be a little biased but when using queso, the nachos just don’t seem very fresh 0/5

Crunchiness of Chips:  If not queso soaked, the chips kept their crunch pretty good and I liked the use of blue corn tortilla  3/5

Creativeness:  I appreciated that they tried to be creative with the topping choices it was just the execution that was lacking 3.5/5

Total stars of 10.5 out of 20 or 53%

  1. I’m glad you commented that the pic does not represent the tastiness because from the pic, I sure assumed that was one darn good plate of nachos!
