Of course in Asheville, you have plenty of Mexican food choices from Papas & Beer to Mamas & Beer, but this is one that does not have a person affiliated with it, only a nacho. Nachos & Beer has been our go-to spot lately for Mexican food. If you don’t know where it is, you head toward Fairview on Charlotte Hwy and it is right across from Ingles. The dishes, atmosphere and service are all great. We stopped by there for dinner the other day, and Isabella took good care of us.
They always have drink specials, so I decided to flashback to my earlier days and order a Long Island Iced Tea.
Then dinner came out and we got the Sizzling Enchiladas, and a specialty taco plate that had steak, mushrooms, and lots more! Everything was so delish. You can Watch The Enchiladas Sizzle Here!
Tacos are taking over Asheville North Carolina. It all started out years ago when a few burrito and taco shops opened. Then a couple of food trucks came on the scene with some tasty tacos. After that, several restaurants started offering craft cuisine style tacos as entrees. Then White Duck came and sort of perfected the taco as we knew it. Ever since then, tacos have been a hot commodity in Asheville.
Now a new taco shop has arisen in West Asheville, and on the Sweet Slope of all places, by the name of Taco Billy. At first we thought “no big deal, just another taco shop,” but boy were we wrong! This place is amazing, and please do not take our word for it. I dare you to go here and even try prove us wrong. Impossible. It’s that good. After a few bites, we knew our standard was raised when it came to gourmet tacos. And they serve amazing breakfast tacos ALL DAY! I had the “Mama’s Favorite” and it was the best I have ever had.
We decided to take a few photos before trying them, because they were so pretty; and just in case they were good, we planned on sharing them with you. Well, not sharing in the way of you actually tasting them… you will have to get your own for that. But please allow us to introduce you to the 4 tacos that we met today:
Mama’s Favorite – Sausage, Egg, Spinach, Sweet Potato, and Goat Cheese on a Plantain Tortilla.
Kirb Service – Beef Medallions, Onions and Peppers stewed in an Ancho Chili Sauce, served with Jack Cheese on a Flour Tortilla.
Support Group – Cumin Sweet Potatoes, Pecan and Black Bean Hummus, Roasted Pepitas, Avocado, Spinach, and Coconut Crema on a Plantain Tortilla (Vegan).
Morita – Chili Stewed Pork and Potatoes, Tangy Slaw, Cilantro, and Jalapeno Crema on a Flour Tortilla.
