Nacho Daddy- Duluth
We always have an amazing time at Nacho Daddy’s. The servers and hosts are amazing. The drinks and superb and you get great value for money. The wings and chicken quesadilla are my personal faves.
The nachos we got were meh. They had steak on them and the steak had ZERO flavor. I feel the nachos are made with less stuff of them now. We were looking at pics from when we first came here in Spring if 2019 and they definitely use less toppings than they did at that time. The overall atmosphere was was great though. The service was great and the manager was nice! The drinks are good also! I will come back when it’s warmer outside, for some drinks!
Best service ever and atmosphere is great
Came and got seated, waited too long for a server, we ordered cheese dip trio. The came to the table cool, had a small candle to heat it, DID NOT WORK. My wife's
chicken tacos were cold and had to be returned. My steak fajitas were supposedly filet mignon...little to chewy to be! won't be coming back!
Came in for hubby's birthday with a large group (8+) for brunch on a Saturday. Sat on the rooftop. Great area. They were short staffed, but were very accommodating. All the orders were correct, food was delicious, and the mimosas were GREAT!! Will definitely be back.
Love this place... Charlotte is a great bartender...
We enjoyed our first date together
everything was kind of average except the margaritas and the service, they were both superb. Food wasn't anything special, steak nachos had. wry little steak in them, chips are thin and break into everything you try and dip them in. Like i said service was very good, Tommy was very nice and personable, don't remember our waitress' name but she was good too. don't think i'd go back
Overall we had a good dining experience. Our waitress Aya did an outstanding job serving us and was very kind. The only drawback we did experience was with our reservation. We booked outdoor/rooftop seating in advance but once we arrived were told that there was not any outdoor seating available.
Food was awesome! Great variety of choices for Sunday brunch !
It was a fun birthday party
We have tried 2 times and it has not been worth it. The prices are too high on the food and drinks.
Went for brunch, food was great bottomless mimosas were awesome and our server did a great job with keeping it with mimosas (different flavors) for our party of 5. The roof top bar is gorgeous and recommended. & it was right down the road from $10 tubing so it was an AMAZING experience & I'll definitely be back!
The margaritas were delicious, but I did not enjoy my meal. The lobster tacos were more breading than anything else and the ceviche was bland. The food was plentiful and reasonably priced, so I would definitely give it another try.
This was a nice little chill spot in Duluth we went around 6 and sat on the patio
The food was great, the margaritas were excellent, the atmosphere was amazing, and the servers were all very friendly. We will definitely be returning.
They called me earlier to confirm my reservation. So we had high hopes. It is located in downtown Duluth with beautiful small town views. We sat on the rooftop because inside was too loud. Everyone was friendly and attentive. We ordered Daddy’s Margaritas and chicken nachos. My date felt that the margarita was weak so he complained and they fixed it. The nachos were somehow soggy. The chicken was dry. I gave it 4 stars because the service was great.
We enjoyed the food and the ambience. It’s very much a bar like atmosphere but that’s what we expected. There is a nice upstairs outdoor area but it was too hot on Saturday to enjoy that space. The server was very friendly and attentive enough to satisfy our needs. We shared a plate of Philly Cheesesteak Nachos and an appetizer of Mexican Street Corn off the cob. Both were delicious. We each had a blood orange margarita. They were delicious and potent. We would definitely come back again the next time we are in the area.
This was second time dining here with friends and family, the staff was courteous throughout. Drinks are great. The food options and presentation were great but everything tasted bland, not enough seasonings. This was shared by mostly everyone in party each visit. If this can be addressed then this place would be even better.
This was our 3rd trip and the quality of the food has continued to deteriorate. Was not to happy to be asked to pay extra for salsa when 99% of Mexican restaurants serve it complimentary with chips. Also, the big draw to this place is the rooftop but for no reason given, it was not open.
On the positive side the margaritas were excellent and loaded with flavor and a kick!
Not going back for awhile except maybe for drinks and chips. Food was that bad including my beef burrito as the quality of the ground beef was comparable to a Taco Bell.
First time at Nacho Daddy. It will not be my last! The food, service, and Margaritas were great!
Good drinks, with friendly atmosphere. Recommend adding more pictures to your menus with detailed descriptions. Host hd table ready. Bartender was timely. Kitchen was quick to tweak our order. I’m coming back!
Food is basic it all depends on what u order. Oversized Nachos.
Everything was great but server clearly upcharged us. We specifically asked if the nachos on skillets was too much for one person to eat alone. She said absolutely not. We ordered 3 of them for 2 adults and one child. Even the adults came no where close to finishing. In fact one skillet would have been enough for the 3 of us. I was greatly disappointed by this clearly inaccurate advice and chalked it down to her wanting to drive the bill higher. For that reason alone I will not go back and will not advice anyone else to go.
My husband and I absolutely loved Nacho Daddy! The service was incredible and the nachos were amazing!
It was hot in there. Flys where all over the place. Food was not worth cost. Outside customers should come in to order and not have the big window open
Service slow, too many people(that weren't serving food) in the kitchen PLAYING around the food i.e. arm wrestling, putting on sunglasses and modeling, server touching someone's head with the gloves on he was using to bring food out. Ratio chips to meat was OFF. It was hot in the restaurant.
We've tried lots of Tex-Mex and Nacho Daddy is pretty good, but not go-out-of-our-way good. Prices are a bit higher than most Tex-Mex.
I've recommended a few friends based on my 1st experience, but the second wasnt so great. 1 hour wait for food, food was cold when arrived at table, kitchen even screwed up the refire order. Flavor profiles for entrees my teenaged kids ordered (filet mignon tacos & chicken fajitas) were not great at all. We also ordered lobster tacos and the lobster was over cooked to the point beyond being cutable or chewable. I'm not so sure about giving them a third try considering my last experience.
I was very disappointed. The food was subpar and our server, Ashley, was horrendous. Very inattentive and slow. We barely saw her most of the night.
I will not return
Honestly, would probably not go back. The noise level was very high and consequently people were yelling to be heard. Food was just okay.
Our group of 7 enjoyed our lunch very much! The street tacos and chimichangas were a big hit. We will be back!
Great food! A little pricey for what it is. Margaritas were expensive and not very strong. Great and fast service.
We arrived early for our 8PM reservation, and were seated early.
Our server was very quick to the table, she was detailed with taking the orders, and made sure the food (both orders special) was correct. Drinks were on the table within 5 minutes of being seated.
The food took some time, but our total time, from being sat at the table to sitting in the car, was under 75 minutes.
Food came quick and the portions were solid. Is it a ton of food for $20/person? No. Is the quality excellent? Yes. That will depend on how you value your food. Personally, my wife and I were happy, but it'll be a special occasion restaurant due to the price.
Watching people take Scorpion Shots is fun. There's camaraderie without having to actually go talk to strangers. The best kind.
The food was excellent, the chips were light and crispy without being fragile, the steak was excellently prepared, and even the refried beans were well made.
The music was a reasonable volume (based on other reviews, I assume they have turned their music down some, as the lyrics to the videos playing on the TVs around the place were barely audible).
For a cool, relaxed, sit-down-and-eat-in restaurant in the $50 for 2 entrees and a dessert range, I would certainly recommend it. We'll certainly be back.
This was our second attempt at Nacho Daddy. The first was a couple of weeks ago. Sat at the bar because the wait for a table on a week night was 2 hours . Bartender was nice, margaritas were just ok. Tried the fajita nachos and lobster enchiladas. Both were good, but not great. Decided to make reservations for tonight to give it another try. Arrived to a very pleasant waitress. Got seated right on time which was great since other people were being quoted an hour wait time. Promptly ordered two margaritas. 15 minutes went by, no drinks. Waitress said "we only have one bartender and she is a bit backed up. Let me take your order and I'll go check in your drinks.” We ordered one plate of Filet Mignon nachos to share. 30 minutes into our meal, no margaritas and no server. 45 minutes the manager brings the margaritas and says, "sorry these took a while", dropped them and left. 60 minutes and we still have no food. Ask the server, because now we are on a time crunch and her irritated with us for asking response was "see those red squares on the order screen, that means she's really backed up. Do you want it to go?" NO, I don't want to wait an hour to eat and then take it to go. Nachos arrive 5 minutes later and are nothing but a pile of chips, smothered in refried beans and pico with a few chunks of meat. No plates, no napkins, no silverware. Finally got all of the above and scarfed down our completely underwhelming nachos. Was then promptly presented with a $48 bill and told "have a good rest of your evening."
I rarely take the time out of my day to write a review unless it is positive. Tonight however was worthy of my time. Spare yourself!!
My husband and a couple of friends and I went back to Nacho Daddy on a Saturday night. The service was extremely poor. Despite having reservations, we were asked to move tables after ordering drinks because the waitress "messed up". It took 2 hours to receive our food. Our waitress never checked on us. They brought the wrong margaritas. They were "out" of queso. Nacho Daddy has a lot of kinks to work out. I hate to leave a negative review as I am a big supporter of Downtown Duluth and especially the local restaurant scene but I will have to say, I don't recommend Nacho Daddy right now. I hope they read reviews and improve ASAP.
ND is going through opening pains. We’ve been there twice this week. The first time, our service was slow but decent. Today, it was terrible. 3 servers were trying to fill in for one server and they tried but 30 mins between drinks and 70 minutes after order food is too much for me. SO MANY LOCALS are forgiving but today was just too much. Piles of glasses on the bar.
I was a server for years. There were several servers today and not that many tables. At one point there were 5 tables open and servers were still running around crazy. I’ll give it some time and try again, but not a great week. Not one manager showed their face to the tables either time.
Awesomeness you need to go! Charlotte was awesome bartender!!
We visited opening week for dinner. We expected them to still be working out the kinks. There were six of us in our group. Four of our meals came out at the same time. We got the fifth shortly thereafter but had to wait a bit for the sixth. Ironically, it was a salad. Again, no issue with that since it was their first week. We started with Fiesta nachos for the table and they were delicious! The next best item was the tacos (pork and fish). The other dishes were ok. The fajitas were much spicier than other restaurants. We likely won’t be back until the patio is open for two reasons 1) the bar was too loud and 2) the drinks were pricier than their competition. Will look forward to trying their happy hour.
