Alberta's - Tustin

765 El Camino Real,
Tustin, CA 92780

(714) 838-8226

Since I recently had such a bad experience at Taqueria El Chilito with what turned out not to be “Mexican style” nachos, my wife and I decided it was time for a trip to our favorite place to get nachos. Alberta's.

At Alberta’s they actually call their nachos, “Super Chips,” and super they absolutely are. They take a large mound of fresh chips and smother them with beans, tons of shredded cheese, salsa, sour cream, guacamole and the meat of your choice. I usually get carnitas, but this time I decided to go for the carne asada. Super Chips will set you back $7.33, but it’s well worth it.

These nachos are usually large enough for two people to share. After our recent experience with bad nachos though, my wife and I decided to be greedy and order one for each of us. We eagerly pigged out on the nachos and they seemed to be even better than I remembered. Of course neither one of us finished our nachos, but I came pretty close. :-)

Looks like another of the Alberto's orphans, like Alerto's, Alejandro's, etc. Damn good food, though.
