What makes these nachos so delicious? Proportion. Chips, cheese, beans, chicken (in this case; several other kinds of meat or seafood are available), guacamole, pico de gallo and sour cream: Nothing overwhelms anything else, and one chip can support an explosion of flavor rather than collapsing under is weight.Nachomama's

$9.60 (as shown)I'm counting down -- in no particular order -- 100 of my favorite
dishes in St. Louis. Some are well-known, others obscure. Some are
expensive, others dirt cheap. All of them, I guarantee, are delicious.

The great Tex-Mex restaurant Nachomama's is another place where I have difficulty choosing one favorite dish. I was sorely tempted to choose the beef soft taco platter, but as regular readers might suspect, there will be more than a few tacos before this list is over. So I went with another favorite: the nachos grande.
