Foodie Find: Messy's Tacos and Treats

12/29/2017 12:02PM

On first glance, Messy’s looked like a simple roadside taco stand, but one look at the menu convinced me otherwise. In addition to classic Mexican favorites, hungry guests can also enjoy breakfast burritos (chorizo, bacon, or sweet potato and black bean), a cheddar-and-green-chili stuffed churro, and even sundaes and milkshakes—making the decision-making process nearly impossible. I was here for the tacos, but the chef recommended their carne asada nachos, to which I curiously obliged—crossing my fingers that they wouldn’t include fake cheese sauce. With a blue raspberry Italian soda in hand (refreshing and pretty), I was in for a real “treat” as the piping hot nachos arrived. The dish began with some of the tastiest homemade chips I’ve had—fresh but not greasy, and quite sturdy to hold up to all the toppings. I was thrilled to find them smothered in a creamy, homemade queso sauce, followed by a layer of black beans covered with smoky salsa, cool sour cream, creamy guac (additional charge), and a generous portion of thinly sliced, tender carne asada. Finished with a sprinkling of queso fresco, tomatoes, and green onions, it tasted as good as it looked. I would’ve liked cilantro instead of green onions, but can you really get picky when you’re diving into a plate of perfectly loaded nachos?
