Description: Nacho Daddy Mexico is the premier sports bar and restaurant in Puerto Vallarta, the place to go for affordable nightlife in La Zona Romantica, the central zone of Puerto Vallarta, at 180 Basilio Badillo, only two blocks off the beach ...Nacho Daddy Mexico features live music & dancing; NFL, CFL and European football via satellite on multiple 42-inch High-definition TVs; pool tables and some of the best “Mex-Tex” food in Jalisco State. Its menu is loaded with affordable, tasty enchliadas, chalupas, chile rellenos and killer “macho borracho” chile. You want a juicy ribeye steak? Nacho Daddy Mexico can grill your steak to perfection. Nacho Daddy Mexico’s resident live bands, Joe King Carrasco and Friends and the Texas Embassy Blues Band, play every Thursday, Friday and Saturday night in season. The vibe at Nacho Daddy Mexico is a sort of "tropical House of Blues". Visiting musicians from across North America and Europe have dropped in to play gigs at Nacho Daddy Mexico. Nacho Daddy consistently gets rave reviews on TripAdvisor. It is known as a friendly and welcoming watering hole for tourists and locals alike. Its friendly, expert bartenders are quick to serve you beers, tequilas, cocktails and wine – a little or a lot. Nacho Daddy Mexico is the place in Puerto Vallarta where American, Canadian and European ex-pats and tourists across the globe gather to drink, eat, dance, listen to great music, watch football and having a rip-roaring good time. As one TripAdvsior reviewer wrote, “Nacho Daddy Mexico is where 50-year-olds act like they’re teenagers and party like their hair is on fire.”

“Best blues band - a fun evening of dancing and dining”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 11, 2011

We never miss a stop at Nacho Daddy. Fabulous music most evenings; we go Friday nights to listen to the blues band; top notch musicians, some of whom have played with some very famous musicians in the US. The servers are always happy, fast service..the menu has a mexican flavor to it...food is very good and portions are large. Beer is always cold and the grande strawberry margaritas or daquiris are really tasty. We often bring a group of friends (there is lots of room) and it makes for a very nice evening.

“The Best Taco Salad I've ever had, and I'm from San Antonio, TX!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 7, 2011

Friendly service, great Mex-Tex food, and cold beer too!
Being from San Antonio, I consider myself a Tex-Mex officionado. Nacho Daddy's food was very well prepared, presented and yummy. The grilled steak was perfectly seasoned. In fact, I haven't tasted fajita meat this good since 1984, during my college days in San Marcos, TX.... (where a guy named Cancun Willy served up the best dollar fajita tacos from a little shack in the alley behind the Monkey Bar downtown).

Too top it all off, the - Texas music legend - Joe King Carasco is part owner and can be heard playing live frequently in the evenings!
