Oak Grove Market Keeps Chicken Nachos Tradition

The Saturday tradition keeps local residents coming back to the popular restaurant and market in Oak Grove.

Hundreds of people have been passing around a Saporta Report story on Oak Grove Market's chicken nachos tradition on Saturdays.

From the story:

The line eventually wrapped three-quarters of the way around the store and put customers in every seat in the place as well as the chairs and tables outside. Almost all of them had ordered chicken nachos.

The immense popularity of Oak Grove’s chicken nachos may be attributed as much to the effect of limited supply as it is to the quality of the dish. The lunch plate, which sells for $7.99, is only on the menu on Saturday. It goes on the board at 11 a.m. and comes down when the deli runs out, usually sometime after 3 p.m., according to Oak Grove Market co-owner Jeremy Turner.

Read the full story if you get a chance. Some nice writing by local journalist Ben Smith.
