It was by accident that we discovered Nacho Daddy, located a block off the strip (at S. Las Vegas Boulevard and E. Harmon Avenue), and we’re thrilled that we did.

First, for those looking to escape the chaos of the Strip, Nacho Daddy is festive but a bit lower-key than anyplace on the strip. It was busy but not overly crowded; it was nice to have a bit of elbow room and to be able to hold a conversation, which we did over the restaurant’s blood-orange and signature margaritas.

Nacho Daddy has a long and wonderful vegan menu, and the only challenge was trying to decide what to eat. We opted for the chick’n tacos and the vegan loaded nachos.

I can’t say enough about the chick’n tacos: two crispy, lightly fried flour tortillas stuffed with marinated chick’n, caramelized onions and a spicy tomato salsa. Absolutely beyond delicious, the tacos were served with black beans and wild rice.

We also loved the loaded nachos, a gigantic pile of tortilla chips covered with black beans, salsa, guacamole, and vegan cheese and sour cream. Adding spice is avocado lime salsa and pickled jalapeños.

The vegan menu at Nacho Daddy also includes fajitas, quesadillas, fajita bowls, chick’n nachos, and salads. If we’d had the time, we’d have tried every one of them. For a wonderful vegan meal (and tasty margaritas), this is a must-visit for plant-based Vegas travelers.
