Food: Nacho Daddies

Mexican food finally returns to Palafox Street dining scene
By Kiley A. Bolster

Palafox Street will be welcoming its newest dining addition on Feb. 14 when Nacho Daddies opens its doors. The brainchild of Pensacolians Ryan and Chef Erika Thomas, Nacho Daddies will feature made-to-order Tex-Mex style entrées such as nachos, tacos, quesadillas and burritos. The menu will also include fresh salads, as well as house-made salsa, guacamole and queso dip. Beer and wine will be available.

The couple is not new to the downtown dining scene. They own and operate local favorite Portabello Market, located inside the Pensacola Little Theatre. Co-owner Ryan Thomas states that they have had the idea for Nacho Daddies in mind for years, and are excited to see how the downtown crowd embraces the new concept. Chef Erika Thomas will no doubt continue to please the palates of Pensacolians with her culinary skills at the new location. Though Nacho Daddies already offers an extensive menu of Tex-Mex options, an abundance of fresh ingredients will also be available to design your own tacos. Taco toppings include a variety of proteins such as beef, chicken, fish, pork and shrimp, as well as vegetarian options like grilled zucchini and portabello mushroom.

For around $10, you can enjoy an entrée and beverage in the restaurant’s quick service, unpretentious dining area, or take your meal to go. Nacho Daddies will offer breakfast, lunch, dinner and late-night snacks, as well as free delivery to those who live or work downtown. All major credit cards are accepted.
