Nachos are the perfect appetizer. Rich with flavor, but not too filling, they serve as the perfect precursor to any meal. They can also serve as the perfect quick meal to chow down on for game day. Here are a few restaurants in Boston that know how to do nachos.

This relatively new restaurant and bar in Allston offers up a great variety with these delicious plates. You can get a edible tortilla bowl of chips with salsa along with a choice of other toppings for only $7. You could also go all out with the “Fiesta Grande Deluxe,” which is topped with cheese, jalapenos, corn salsa, tomatoes, sour cream, beans, and anything else you can think of for $11.

Beer Works has several locations in the Boston area, including other locations in Salem and Logan Airport.  It is a great place to catch a game and to try their line of brews. One of their best dishes, though, would have to be their nachos. And when you order a full plate of nachos, you might not have much room for an entree. The plate comes piled high with nachos covered in cheese with jalapenos, salsa, sour cream, tomatoes, and more. The meal comes out to $9, and you can add chicken or chili into the mix for an additional $3.

Clarke’s is another great spot to get some awesome nachos. They have a few different options to choose from as well. You can get the “Nachos Supreme” for $12. The supreme is topped with cheese tomatoes, jalapenos, chicken, beef chili and all the other essentials. You can also upgrade that to the monstrous platter size for the $25. If you want to stray from the traditional nacho topics, you can grab the “Buffalo Chicken Nachos” for $9.50.

Similar to Clarke’s, Four’s has a delicious buffalo chicken nacho plate. Their plate comes with tomatoes, scallions, and mozzarella cheese, and is topped with diced fried chicken in buffalo sauce. The delectable meal comes out to $9.95. If you are feeling more tradition, you can get the “Nachos El Grande” for the same price. “Nachos El Grande” is the more classic approach to nachos that we all know and love, with chili, jalapenos, tomatoes, cheese, sour cream, guacamole, and salsa.
