“Diner turned Mexican”
Reviewed July 27, 2014

Don't let this old fashioned diner building fool you. Inside is some super Mexican food that is sure to thrill your taste buds. The tacos are unbelievable. The burritos are so tasty and huge. The fajitas will blow you away. Bigger and better that I've ever seen. Served with the nacho chips, is a great bean dip, cheese dip, or the salsa bar.

Do you get the message? If you love Mexican or want to start loving Mexican, this is your clear cut destination.

“Best of the town”
Reviewed June 6, 2014 via mobile

Most authentic and best service of all the Mexican places in asheville. Family owned and wonderfully attended. The Chipotle Spicy fajitas are the best. Try choriqueso with the freshly handmade tortilla chips.

“Decent Southwest food in a neighborhood setting”
Reviewed April 15, 2014

The food is a decent price and the margaritas are generous. I like the salsa bar but find the food a bit smothered in cheese and wish it was fresher in taste. It's a nice neighborhood effort however.

“My Favorite Mexican Restaurant in the US!”
Reviewed March 4, 2014

I was kinda shocked to read some of the other reviews of Nachos & Beer. Many were/are disappointed... Honestly... Its our favorite Mexican restaurant in all the US.. Period. For what it's worth.. My wife and I have traveled to Mexico dozens of times so we are familiar with good "authentic" Mexican cuisine and this place delivers. While the name of the place may be as bland as white bread..(that's the best name they could think of.. really?!) ... the food rarely disappoints. We've probably eaten there maybe 20 times and had only one bad experience with a chicken chimichanga.. Otherwise.. the food was to die for... The staff is always friendly, helpful, courteous, etc..

There are lots of good restaurants in Asheville, but when I ask my wife where she wants to go .. I know what her answer will be... Nachos and Beer...
