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.”

“HOME OF JOE KING CARRASCO! MEX TEX FAVORITE!”
Reviewed February 4, 2013 via mobile

We are Texans living full time in Puerto Vallarta now and this is where we go to get our TexMex fix!

Country Fried Steak is what we call Chicken Fried Steak and Chicken Fried Steak is actually Chicken Steak fried...get it? If you're Texan, you'll know the difference...either or both are excellent...served with Texas cream gravy and a pile of French Fries and FRIED corn on the cob....YEP! Just like home!

On a side note, every other Wednesday during high season is Kitty Bingo at 6PM...Cat lover or not, this s a fun night to go! The locals and visitors come in throngs! Bingo, Big Margaritas, Local entertainers perform, big prizes, and it all helps homeless kitties in PV!! Best value and the most fun in PV...

AND DON'T FORGET JOE! The world famous Joe King Carrasco plays here most Saturday nights in high season...Texans know he's the "real deal" when it comes to TEX MEX CARIBBEAN music!!! Get up and dance or sing along! By far, this is our "home away from home"...put it on your list of things to do while in PV!

“Great little slice of home.”
Reviewed January 27, 2013

Feels like home. The owner is from Texas. Popular with ex-pats from Canada and USA. They show all hockey games. Great Margaritas and a very good Mexican menu.

“Very affordable and great food”
Reviewed January 26, 2013

My daughter and I stopped in here tonight to listen to the live music. I expected the food to be average, but I was pleasantly surprised that our meals (burrito and quesadilla) were way better than my expectations. On top of that, the pricing was excellent. The music was entertaining.

“Good music and nachos”
Reviewed January 23, 2013

We went in this place becaause there was great satellite radio classic rock and roll and the menu had reasonable prices. The nachos were some of the best I have had. My husband went back the next day to watch a playoff football game (in English).

“good vibe”
Reviewed January 15, 2013

Cool spot, too early for the band..food was just ok. service was great. would return again. would like to see the bands perform there. We sat down and ordered a rye and coke. They were out of Crown Royal so the owner actually ran down the street and bought more so we could have one..how cool is that?
