Once upon a time I used to love those low-budget Nachos. But then, 30 years ago, I worked in a c-store that sold Nachos and used one of those pump dispensers

...for the cheese sauce, and after seeing what happens inside those things when the hot water jacket isn't changed a couple times a day or when the entire pump isn't completely disassembled, cleaned and sanitized at least every day, I haven't been able to stomach them. It's a microbiological nightmare in there.

The hot water bath starts to smell like vomit after a couple hours. Somewhere around the second day after cleaning this slimy black ... thing starts growing around the pump check valve's spring and ball bearing.

Where I worked I was the only guy who took the time to disassemble that thing every day, most of the time. I don't expect most places that sell Nachos are much different. If you like sauce nachos you should probably stick to places with disposable bag dispensers, like the Gehl's dispensers you see around this part of the country.

BBQ nachos FTW.

At Memphis Redbirds games its chips, Rendezvous pulled pork, cheese, BBQ sauce and dry rub.

Beyond awesome.

Bad nachos are salted cardboard covered in "Cheez-flavored" rubber, and chili scavenged from a Taco Bell restroom.

Good nachos are proof that the universe is benign and wants us to be happy.
