The local legend says the elusive Nacho Hippo (Nachonamus Hippopotamo Maximus) can only be spotted when a true lover of World Class Nachos has given up all hope of finding any. Then and only then, the Hippo may magically appear on a clear moonlit night – trudging through the dunes, ready to help and guide a kindred spirit. If you are one of the lucky ones who sees the Hippo, follow her. She will lead you to Nacho Hippo Cantina Maximo.
Nacho Hippo is a cool spot that my family has gone to for years. They have some funky taco creations that are all good. The nachos are off the charts! After a long drive - we love to chill out with some beers and crazy nacho creations here. Price is right, beer is cold, and the whole family loves it.

Long time to get our food, but probably pandemic related. Food was really good and the waitress kept coming to give us updates. Really appreciated that. Wife says some of the best nachos she's ever eaten in her life.

Went to Nacho Hippo tonight while taking my daughter to the airport. There was a wait and we went to the bar where we couldn’t get any service. We were getting ready to leave but then the beeper went off for a table. We decided to give our server at the table a try and see if we could get something before we had to get to the airport.
Our server, Jess, was the game changer. She came to our table with a big smile, even though it was obvious everyone there was trying to keep their sanity with being slammed and obviously not having enough help. We told her our situation and she made it happen. We got our food, which was great, and got out of there in time to get my daughter to the airport. I’m really thankful we got Jess as she really did a GREAT job and represented Nacho Hippo with 5 star service. Her service was so good that it more than made up for the lack of service that we got at first. I know that these folks are fighting a losing battle right now and I get it. But Jess treated us like family and that is why we will go back again!!!

This was the best service we received on our entire trip. I wish I remember our waitress name. Never had an empty drink and always asked if we needed anything. She had long dreads. Management should give her a raise, lol. Nachos were good. Definitely recommend the shrimp appetizer.

One of my favorite restaurants in the area. Delicious food! The nachos are huge and so good. Tacos are great and they have a variety of options. Good appetizers if you just want a snack and some drinks. Great atmosphere, friendly staff
