Sam's Restaurante: "Home of the Nacho" Piedras Negras Restaurant Tip by Stephen-KarenConn
Piedras Negras Restaurants: 6 reviews and 11 photos
This restaurant reminds me in many ways of an American franchise establishment, but with a decided Mexican flavor. It is simply but tastefully decorated and spotlessly clean. The service is excellent and the food delicious.
Favorite Dish: When you're in Piedras Negras you've gotta have Nachos, because this is the city where they were born. Ignacia "Nacho" Anaya, a maitre d' at a local restaurant served the first ever plate of Nachos in 1943. Today it is a classic Tex-Mex dish which is enjoyed over a wide part of the planet. An annual nacho competition is held in Piedras Negras on the 2nd weekend of October, with Anaya's son as the judge.

Directions: Corner of Padre de las Casas and Calle Teran, across from the Best Western Hotel.
