I don’t remember what movie it was, but you’re going to know what I’m talking about when I sum it up here. A group of out of towners are looking for something to eat at a place they’ve never been to before and pick a restaurant at random, or perhaps because they looked online and saw that they had a few kinds of nachos to try there. They pull into the parking lot, wade through the crowd of locals on the front steps smoking and giving the side eye, and enter the restaurant. As they step into the dining room and a hush goes over the room as silence descends and everyone inside turns to stare at them. If there was a record player going it would have scratched as well. If this restaurant was down South someone would have asked, “You lost boy?” You know the kind of place I’m talking about. But imagine that this was not a movie and that this restaurant was a real place I went to, and that it wasn’t down South, relatively in the United States that is. No, this restaurant was in Warrenton, Oregon, just outside of Astoria. This restaurant was Rod’s Bar and Grill.Read More

Here's a very small image of what you want to look for!
Yep, it is truly the season for cheesin'!
Once upon a time a young lad went to the beach up in York Maine. The water was too cold to go in. The beach was to crowded. He was sunburned. The little arcade on the boardwalk had a claw machine that you could catch live lobsters with, however they were the saddest looking jacked up lobsters you ever saw. The day was going to be a wash, until the lad saw a little restaurant on the Short Sands beach with the whimsical name of “Guac-n-Roll”. He had some nachos. He had a jalapeno margarita. He went home. The memory of this experience stuck with him through the years until finally the day came where he returned to York to find that while the lobster claw machine at the arcade was gone, “Guac-n-Roll” was still there, albeit having moved a few spaces down on the street. That young lad was me of course, and presented with a chance for a proper review I stood up to the challenge, or sat down at a table rather.Read More
The most tasty thing in the world, I think, are nachos. I live on a placid island of gustatory ignorance in the midst of black seas of infinity, and it was not meant that I should voyage far, because all I need to eat is those. The culinary sciences, each straining in their own direction, have hitherto harmed me little; but some day the piecing together of delicious knowledge will open up such terrifyingly scrumptious vistas of food that I shall either get fat from eating it all or flee from the deadly light of a food that might be better than nachos into the peace and safety of never eating again. It’s NachoProviCon 2017!Read More
