Sometimes I go to a restaurant because I hear they have great nachos. Sometimes I go because I’m hungry and a restaurant is a place where you can go to eat. Sometimes I go because of just one word, used within the context of nachos, that’s so out of left field there’s no way I CAN’T not check them out. That was the case this time. The restaurant, The Luxury Box. The word, Lettus.
Have you ever wanted to eat your dinner in a furniture store, not one like Ikea but instead a real nice one? The Luxury Box is probably the closest thing you’ll come to that. This isn’t a complaint, frankly I think it’s awesome, but it is very strange. I realize it’s The LUXURY Box, but I didn’t realize that would come with the decor and room structure of a place where you can get some high quality, nay luxurious, tables, chairs, and other room decorations. Plus instead of eating in their main room you can feast in one of their little alcove rooms for a bit more privacy, and, dare I say, luxury, if you need somewhere to drink your Millionaire’s Coffee. But you didn’t come here for coffee for millionaires, you came for nachos for ten-dollaraires, and check out these crazy things.
What’s up with that spoon? I blocked out the nacho/not your pun in the dish’s title, but in this case I should not have as they’re definitely not your usual nachos. The thing to do seemed to be dump out the chip bowls on to the top of the main pile, eat each of those bowls, and then use the spoon to mix the whole mess up like a Mexican food witch, or bruja. Or maybe I was doing it all wrong and should have been eating them with the spoon all along. Who knows! The combo of shredded cheese and cheese sauce is always a favorite of mine, and that combined with the spicier than average chili created an overall excellent base flavor. Sadly the “lettus” turned out to my great disappointment to just be lettuce, but it was overall good enough that I didn’t mind.
So yes, get these nachos, even though they come with lettuce. Rumor has it The Luxury Box will also serve you a trough of fries, but I can’t confirm that. I can however hypothesize that if there’s a place that’ll serve you nachos with a spoon, fries in a trough, probably with a melon baller on the side, is I’m sure par for the course. Like the slogan on their wall states, it’s truly “A unique and fun way to unwind”. I might rephrase that to “A strange place to get some crazy food that will be better than you’d think.” but the sentiment is the same.
