Frequently Asked Preguntas

What in the hell are you guys doing?

We are visiting every Mexican restaurant in Davidson county and rating their house margarita, chips and salsa. We are also occasionally discussing the guacamole. The overall winner (best combined chips, salsa, house margarita, food and baños) will receive the coveted Sergio Leone Memorial Golden Basket. Check out the full rankings here.

Who are you?

We are Chacho and Nacho. Chacho has probably eaten more carnitas than anybody in Middle Tennesse and makes a good chile verde. Nacho knows his way around a bowl of guacomole. Neither of us have ever been to Mexico. Chacho has a post-graduate degree, while Nacho has a continuing education credit for "Introduction to HTML."

How does the rating system work?

We use a 5-point decimal system. We rate the chips & salsa on a 5-chip scale. We rate the margaritas on a 5-lime scale. We also put each restaurant into overall rankings.

What is your policy on chain restaurants?

We're not required to visit each branch in a chain, but we are required to visit at least one. The only rule is that the place must serve margaritas as well as chips & salsa.

Can I join you on your next outing?

Yes. We may invite everyone on our mailing list to each outing. Sign up here.

Do you rate fast food establishments?

Bitch, I might.

Why are you not rating the queso?

I don't know.

Who is Mr. Aguila?

Nacho's 1994 Ford F-150, manual transmission, broken radio from the time Nacho poured a grande Starbucks coffee in it. Now using a black Jawbone Jambox Mini instead.

What is El Abismo?
