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
