Battle of the Dishes

Salty Señorita v. Loco Patron: Scottsdale's Chicken Nachos Showdown

With all of the Mexican restaurants in the Valley, coming up with an order of winning chicken nachos in all of metro Phoenix would be like picking the best ice cream flavor -- everyone would have a different favorite. The basic combination of chips, cheese and chicken is often complemented by beans, chili, pico de gallo and a bevy of other Hispanic accoutrements, and can be found at nearly any Mexican establishment.

So we narrowed this battle to Old Town Scottsdale.
