Located in Canton, Nacho Mama's has an authentically vintage Baltimore row house, if not Mexican, décor. It's a great place to unwind and chat with single folks after a long day. Try the infamous Hubcap drink; it's served in a large metal contraption full of your favorite listed concoction and topped off with a handful of straws. Sure, the bar is a tad bit crowded at times, but that's what makes Nacho Mama's a great place to roll solo.
