The Hawaiian BBQ Chicken was amazing. The chicken was a tad dry, but the soy-ginger glaze is great! The fried rice was sticky and moist with veggies. It wasn’t very crisp for fried rice, but it still has a lot of flavor.

Ghost Pepper Potato Bites – $10.49

Potato bites, ghost pepper cheese sauce, smoky bacon, and pickled jalapeños

These were really good if you really like spicy food. It’s top-level spice. The tater tots were crisp, and we cannot understate how spicy the cheese sauce was from the ghost peppers.

The carnitas nachos are great. A solid plate of nachos. We appreciate the handmade tortilla chips. The red pepper cheese sauce was a good complement to the moist carnitas. There are a ton of carnitas, so it was well worth the money. We would absolutely get these again.

Plant-based Backlot Nachos – $10.49

Soy chorizo with house-made tortilla chips, dairy-free cheese, and crema topped with green onions

Unfortunately, the vegan nachos were a miss. The vegan cheese was not good. The soy-based chorizo was good, though, and the crema gives it some brightness. If you’re vegan, this is a fine choice; we just wish they had a better “cheese” sauce.
