I Am Nacho Mama, located in Hicksville, serves Latin American fusion inspired dishes using fresh ingredients, slow cooking and wood fire techniques. Starting as a food truck in 2016 as a fun weekend adventure, this family business has grown to open two restaurants both serving delicious food. The restaurant uses homemade tortilla strips layered with queso and black beans topped Mama’s Way with 10 different options to choose from. They also have a specialty nacho dish called the Nacho-sagña, a combination of nachos and lasagna. In addition to nachos, the restaurant offers dishes such as burritos, empanadas, tacos a la plancha and more. Visit their website: here.
