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 live music in town”
Reviewed May 28, 2014

Good service, good bar, okay food, but terrific venue for live music. Each night there's a different style--blues, Tex-Mex rock 'n roll, Country, etc. It's also the best place to meet people and dance with who brung ya' or total strangers. Definitely my place for hanging out and getting a feel for PV and a bucket of beer.

“Good lunch specials.”
Reviewed May 26, 2014

Nacho Daddy's moved up the street from their other location. We usually just go her for a quick lunch since they have daily lunch specials.

Walked by the place during the day to scope it out for dinner; was intrigued by the menu and the atmosphere. Read the reviews; got all excited to go out for some "Texican".
You know the old adage: If you can't say anything nice, don't say anything at all.

“THE ZIPPERS- Sylvie's band on the 2nd floor- Thursdays!”
Reviewed April 29, 2014

This is a great band performing fun "old time" songs from the 70"s and 80's. Quite the entertainment going on starting at 8:30pm----> until the wee hours. Every Thursday Sylvie sings with her band "The Zippers" and it gets rockin' up on the second floor. Many tables to choose from to sit and listen (or dance) to the Zippers as well as the waiters bringing drinks at your leisure. A very fun time had by all. A definite "visit" for some fun on Thursday nights.
