I'd had a particularly rough week at work, so my husband and I decided to treat ourselves by going to Topanga for a plate of nachos (me) and some pork dish (my husband).
While waiting for the food to arrive, we got presented with a complimentary serving of tortilla chips and salsa. The chips were STALE and looked like something you'd get out of a generic brand purchased at the local corner store. The chips were so stale that I began to regret ordering the nachos, knowing that they'd be using the same chips.
When my nachos arrived, I immediately felt deflated. The order was 1/2 the size I thought it would be (I ordered a full order at $13!), and it was simply a pile of chips, with a few shreds of hard-to-find cheese, topped with a bizarrely large dollop of sour cream and guacamole. To give you an idea, I normally LOVE nachos. These were the blandest, most stale, boring nachos I've had. I left 2/3 on my plate, because the sour cream had started to make the chips soggy because there was no cheese to serve as a buffer. (Oh, my husband's dinner wasn't any better)
When my husband and I left the restaurant (disappointed), we joked "Ok, where are we going for a REAL dinner?"
Don't waste your time or your money. It's a real disappointment at Topanga!
