Coppelia is the new Cuban 24-hour diner close to the Meatpacking district that might be serving the best nachos in New York. Crispy homemade chips, topped with beef short rib, guacamole, and rare Chihuaha cheese make this a dish to not be missed, especially late at night.

This East Village sports bar standby does a few things well, including their nachos. The stack of chips and toppings comes to your table on a cake stand and is easily enough for five hungry people to devour. To help keep your nachos crisp during the game, they keep the salsa to the side and skip refried beans altogether.

Below the rumbling J, M, Z in South Williamsburg you’ll find this unassuming Mexican nook. They have a full line of Mexican street food, along with great cheap nachos ($5). Though not made in house, the chips are fresh and covered with an ample amount of beans, beef, tomatoes, peppers, and sour cream.

Café Los Arcos

255 Bushwick Avenue
718-381-2550

Though Bushwick and Williamsburg are gentrifying, there are still Mexican holdouts like Café Los Arcos where you can get a killer plate of super nachos for $8. The towering stack of homemade chips is best eaten with chorizo, though you can get vegetarian with your choice of beans. Then dig in to the melted Jack cheese and fresh guacamole and pico de gallo.
