    The nachos here are what every great love aspires to be: unforgettable, shareable, cheesy, delicious, nonjudgemental. Get 'em South of the Border and grab a frozen mango margarita to wash them down.

    Best nachos I've had! Get them with pulled pork, you won't be sorry. Great beer list too, with 38 on tap. I come here every time I come back to BU, it's that good.

    the place is good for drinks, although if you want to sit to eat you've got be patient because the wait list its around 20- 25 min on the weekends.They have a lot of options of beers and tequilas.

    Sunset is definitely the college & post work hang out place in the area. Their wings and nachos are phenomenal, and their cocktail list is extensive.

    It's never a bad idea to go for a bigger size of nachos - they last in the fridge for a while! The leftovers are pretty delicious still even a couple days later.

    If you're drinking beer, this is not the place to order Coors Light, Bud Light, etc. Try something new! I highly recommend the Bear Republic Racer 5 on tap now.

    Hope you're not in a rush - service is notoriously slow. The nachos with BBQ chicken make up for it though. Also, avoid up to 2 hours before BU hockey game time - it's a madhouse.

    It used to be great when I was in college at BU (2010-2014). Management has changed and the quality has gone down hill. Nachos are no longer to die for. Unfortunate.
