The city’s most famous nacho platters come from the College Street kitchen of this beloved grungy, Tex-Mex institution. Crispy corn tortilla chips come in over nine varieties ranging from basic ($12) to their famous King’s Crown ($26), piled high with ground beef and all the fixins.

This pub on The Esplanade loves its nachos, taking your usual tortilla chips to the next level with over-the-top varieties ranging from $18 to $36. The Loaded Nachos comes with a double portion of beef chilli. The Nachomari is exactly what it sounds like: nachos with flash-fried calamari.

Platters of chips from this King East sports bar are meant to be downed while watching the game. Add pulled pork or spicy taco beef to these cheese-covered nachos, $19, for a little extra. Wash it all down with one of their ridiculous Caesars.

As Toronto’s oldest bar, one would expect Wheatsheaf to know their way around a nacho platter. Homemade tortilla chips ($13.95) are buried under a layer of cheddar and mozzarella, and served with the sauce trifecta of sour cream, guac, and salsa.

Bloor West Village’s longest-running pub is confident in its multi-coloured tortilla chips, so much so that they named them “The Best Damn Nachos...Period!” Nachos are doused in mozzarella and cheddar, $8.95 for a plate.

A small order of nachos from this Davenport Village bar is massive, meaning the large ($14) is absolutely huge. The Gem’s been around for more than 35 years, and their quality, crispy chips served with a special dill dip have withstood the test of time.

Roncy’s neighbourhood restaurant serves up nachos for $14, using corn tortilla chips fried fresh in-house daily. They’re a heaping, delicious mess of melted mozza, Oaxaca cheese, refried beans, avocado, salsa fresca, and sour cream.
