Lorie and I decided to visit (for the 3rd or 4th time) Nacho Mamas on a Monday night and were pleased with the service and food quality. We are engaged and curious diners, so we like to know what we're eating. We were discussing the excellent, chili rellenos - I mentioned that the poblano peppers were a welcome flavor but that the peppers seemed really hot. I asked the waitress if the stuffed peppers were pablano peppers (one or two other varieties are sometimes substituted). She said that they were relleno peppers (relleno means "stuffed" or "filling"). I suggested relleno peppers might not exist. The waitress said she would ask the kitchen staff. She returned and said, "they are relleno peppers." They are not. They are pablanos and the staff should really know what it is they are serving... Our appetizer choice was the lettuce taco plate. This plate would make a nice, light lunch or "bar-snack" - the chicken and beef on the taco plate were excellent. We garnished with the green peppers, tomato and sweet sauce - it made a excellent, fresh-tasting starter. I was not as impressed with the shrimp on the taco plate - but, they came a long way and seemed tired. Lorie had a chicken chimichanga and she enjoyed it. She liked the spice balance. I ordered the chili relleno even though it is on the high end of the "heat" scale for my taste - the variety of flavors and textures over-ride any anxiety of impending heartburn. Both dishes were immense and either would have easily fed us both. However, there's nothing wrong with Nacho Mamas left-overs. I just enjoyed some for lunch and will "sweat-it-out" again later today.
