Yes, indeed, that there is a clamshell box filled to the brim with nachos. A whole heck of a lot of food. Quite a deal.
And it's what diners in Russellville have come to expect from a hometown favorite. Taco Villa on 4th Street has been there as long as I can remember, back through my college days and a staple of my husband's memory from childhood days. During those lean years where we were trying to scrape by through school with roommates and pinching pennies for gas, we could always depend on a Taco Villa taco salad or Nacho Supreme for two or three meals.
Dropped in the other day, and very little had changed... outside of the word "chalupa" that had appeared on the menu. I ordered that there box of Nacho Supreme ($5.45) and had to not only split it with the hubster but take some home, too. Yeah, it doesn't qualify as haute cuisine, but if you're looking for a filling meal on a budget, here ya go.
More on the jump.
He ordered the Burrito Supreme ($3.60), like he always does. That's one of those big 32 ounce drinks next to it there in the photo. This burrito is two fistfuls of beef, cheese, lettuce, cheese, sour cream, and cheese. They offer it in a dinner ($5.80) but I've never seen the need. Even with a monster appetite, this will conquer it.
You're not going to see a whole lot of advertizing for it. But most of the locals can tell you where it is and how to get there. Order ahead during the lunch rush at (479) 968-1191 -- that little parking lot gets packed. Taco Villa is open 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. Monday through Thursday and 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. Friday and Saturday, closed Sunday.
