According to Nugent, Chicago’s deep dish is fine and New York’s famous pizza is good, but nothing beats a slice of New Mexican pizza for him. “There’s something about green chillies on a pizza that makes it stand out so that I can’t even describe it to people who haven’t even tried it,” said Nugent.
Although pizza was their priority, they made way for other local dishes. “Huevos Rancheros, some of the best Huevos Rancheros we’ve ever had, and of course we did [Blake’s] Lotaburger, ”said Nugent. “We tried the Slate Street Cafe for breakfast and it was amazing. The cookies and sauce that was poured into the green chilli cheddar biscuit. “
