NachoJoe rates Schooners 9/10

Well here we have it! The very first “Nacho Joe” Review! My sidekick “Pastayoyo” and I took a ride over to Schooners Neighbourhood Pub, 6416 Old Banff Coach Rd. SW

We had the half-order of the “NACHOS (best you’ve ever had)” This was not an overstatement! The reason me and my trusty sidekick had the half order is because our waitress told us they were big enough. Pastayoyo and I are not small people, the waitress could see this too! So we decided to go with the her recommendation. Boy, were they really good! Lets break them down shall we?

The Nachos.

They were the tri-colored variety. The colors were usually what you would find, red, yellow, and green chips. They were thinner chips but they still had a nice crunch to them.


The most important topping will come first. Cheese. There was plenty of cheese on these babies. Almost every Nacho had some cheese on it. The cheese tasted like a mixture of real cheddar cheese and Monterrey jack. The other toppings on these Nachos were great too! There was tomatoes, black olives, french onions, jalapenos, and banana peppers. The banana peppers added an extra bite to the nachos. However, because of the two kinds of peppers, the nachos were quite spicy. This is okay if you like spicy nachos, if not then be cautious and order the peppers on the side. The toppings were all fantastic!


At $10.99 for a half order and $15.99 for a full order it is well worth the money! If you want to add beef, chili, or guacamole it is an extra $2.99. I am a purist so I like my nachos without any meat, but if you do then have meat on them! The half order was a great size! It could feed at least 4 people for an appetizer or 2 if that’s all you are eating!


They looked pretty… and they gave us two of each dips! They came with sour cream and salsa! The salsa was the perfect heat and the sour cream was a great consistency, not too watery and not too thick. It was great!

Here are some pictures of the Nachos!

Close Up!


Well overall I enjoyed these nachos. They were a little spicy but they were tasty! However, every once in a while I would get a soggy nacho because of the thin chips. But other then that they were delicious. They weren’t even that greasy! It was hard to find any oil on the bottom of the basket paper!  For the very first nacho review they have really set the mark! Pricing was good, toppings were good, and taste was fantastic! If you want good spicy nachos then look no further! Schooners is the place to go!

Schooners Neighbourhood Pub nachos get 9/10! It was very hard to find anything wrong with these Nachos! Great benchmark! Thanks Schooners!
