“Best Mexican on Saint Simons”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 24, 2012

Get anything that is authentic Mexican food and you will enjoy. Don't eat a sandwich or anything called American and I think you will enjoy. Locally owned and operated.

“Great Mexican in Georgia”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2012

I grew up in CA and have had lots of great Mexican food. Nachos is the real deal. My only suggestions are - add a liitle more meat and lighten up slightly on the cheese. We love the vibe here and visit at least once a week.

“Most authentic Mexican restaurant on St Simons”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2012

The folks at Nacho's formerly operated Los Arcos on New Jessup Hwy at I95 Exit 36. We ate there several times a month until they relocated to St Simons Island. We moved with them. The food and service is consistently the best. The owners are very personable and strive to provide an excellent dining experience. One of our favorite menu items is the gorditas--a Mexico City speciality. A plate of gorditas topped with extra onions and celantro will leave you full and very happy.

“Average mexican at this point”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 9, 2012

I'm willing to give Nacho's another try. There is no authentic mex restaurant on the island - with Bubba Garcia's in Redfern serving kicky and quality tex/mex, Doug's Fireside Tex Mex not knowing exactly what its specialty is, and the mexican restaurant in the Pier Village changing hands and so far failing to attract a crowd (not to mention Barbarito's assembly line burritos). Nacho's is very busy at this point, mostly with island residents who live at this end of the island. My food was fairly bland, including the salsa. Good mangorita. I hope they make it past the initial curiosity phase with good dishes that represent Mexico, instead of "#2 with rice and beans".

“Excellent Food & Staff..”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 17, 2012

We live on St. Simons and have been coming here weekly since the restaurant opened. We have discovered several "favorites" on the menu and have never had anything we did not love! Jorge welcomes everyone and makes the best margaritas while Ignacio works his own magic in the kitchen. We are 5 out of 5 fans!
