Strips and Cheese – Huntington Beach Cheese Strips

During a recent trip to Huntington Beach, I sampled an OC local’s favorite — the Strips and Cheese (AKA Cheese Strips) served at snack stands along the oceanfront. These cold nachos with taco sauce are a favorite surfer snack, and I must admit, they’re pretty tasty (if not a bit like the cheese quesadilla from Napoleon Dynamite!) Dwight’s Snack Stand is one of the many Huntington Beach restaurants that serve the snack. Check em out and judge for yourself!
