What constitutes a $25 plate of nachos? The Fontainebleau seems to think six nachos covered in cheese and full sprigs of cilantro with a few accoutrements. Oh, and it’ll take an hour for you to get it after ordering.
That’s what happened to a visitor of the newly opened Fontainebleau in their Sportsbook bar, which has now become a viral moment across X, fomerly known as Twitter and Reddit.
X user @MuTigerMike posted a photo of his nachos saying,
Hey @fblasvegas we waited an hour for food in the Sportsbook and this is our nachos???Come on man.”
Comments rushed to add their 2 cents and their pictures of nachos that you can buy across Vegas, from restaurants and bars like the Peppermill to Hard Rock Cafe and Circa.
The Fontainebleau official X account commented on the original posters thread, saying,
People flooded the comments.
“What is this? Nachos for ants,” one user said in a play on a famous line from Zoolander, while many others took to mentioning other places that serve nachos piled high for 1/3rd less the price.
While Fontainebleau has a certain higher-end aesthetic behind it as opposed to nachos from a dive bar on the Strip, there are places like Circa or the Peppermill where you can get a heaping pile of nachos with tons of toppings.
