Guilty Pleasure: Camacho’s Nachos at Dodger StadiumMay 03 2010 · 2 comments · Echo Park, Guilty Pleasure
I love the Dodgers, but I can’t say the same about the food at Dodger Stadium. I know it’s a travesty to utter this phrase, but: Dodger Dogs are gross. The texture is rubber and the taste is all salty pork water.
If you must eat a dog while you watch the game, I say brave the line at the grilled stand and get the Super Dodger Dog, which is all-beef and has more of a “real” taste.
But that’s not my top choice.
If there’s one guilty pleasure that I have no power to resist, it’s Camacho’s Nachos. They’re made with cheese sauce, which is almost always a bad sign, but when you add
the (seemingly) fresh guacamole, pico de gallo and a little sour cream, it’s use-a-fork-and-scrape-the-bottom good. The chips are Mexican restaurant quality and not the same as those gritty Tostito-esque ones they serve up with the regular nachos.
You also get your choice of chicken or carne asada. I usually go for neither, since stadium meat is a little scary, but when I feel like throwing caution to the wind and oinking it up, I opt for the carne asada, which is totally decent. I don’t ever go for the beans, though, because they create a too-mushy texture that I’m not into.
Camacho’s Nachos go for about $9. Pricey but somehow worth it. Don’t forget to ask for jalepenos.
