The nachos at Sneaky Dee’s are frequently called the best in the city, and yeah, I can see why.
I ordered the King’s Crown (“crisp corn tortilla chips covered with salsa roja, piled high with frijoles, ground beef, tomatoes, onions, mixed peppers, jalapenos, melted cheese, topped with guacamole & sour cream”). At 26 bucks, it seems like it might be overpriced until it comes to the table and you realize it’s enough to feed three or four hungry people.
It’s super tasty. All of the components work really well together, and it’s so loaded with stuff that you’re never going to get a dry chip.
If anything there’s too much stuff — the tortilla chips can’t really hold up to the insane deluge of cheese and toppings. It’s fine at first, but after a few minutes all of the chips in the middle are complete mush.
It’s also a bit one-note rich, though the bottle of vinegary hot sauce they bring with the plate helps out a lot in this regard.
I feel like it’s probably a bit too haphazard to be the best nachos in the city, but it’s certainly delicious.
