There's nothing quite like gathering the whole family around the dinner table for a delicious feast. It is a great time to talk, bond, and where some of our most cherished family memories are made.

However, one family has seriously divided opinion with their rather unique family meal, which they affectionately call a "nacho table".

Why "nacho table"? Well, because they literally cover the entire surface of the dining table in nachos.

"We always make a nacho table during family vacation," TikTok user Stefanie captioned her video, which has been viewed on the social media platform over 3.5 million times.

Check out the video below:

In the video, the family can be seen prepping the large wooden table for their Mexican feast, starting by covering the tabletop in aluminum foil.

Next, huge bags of nacho chips are poured out on top and spread from edge-to-edge, as other family members start to prep the toppings.

We see onions being chopped, a huge bowl of guacamole ready to be served, and jars of nacho cheese being heated.

Some of the toppings are then placed in the center of the table, as the nachos are then smothered with the cheese, onions, and some ground beef.

Then, the family all circles the table and digs in. As a man who literally cannot handle anybody touching my plate, I can confirm that I believe this is disgusting - and I wasn't the only one.

The video has received over 7,400 comments since being posted, and it is fair to say that people are heavily divided over the idea of a "nacho table".

One commenter simply said: "My germ freak family could never", which was echoed by a second user, who typed: "The people leaning over the food while they eat and using the other food as a plate would make me too paranoid to eat it."

And a third added: "I just can’t, I feel like what if someone is leaning over the table to get to the center & their hair is falling all over."

Others pointed out that this would be impossible to execute with pets in the house.

One TikToker wrote: "My dogs would never allow this", while a cat-owner typed: "My cats would lay on it."

But, perhaps surprisingly, there were many people in the comments section that LOVED the idea of a "nacho table".

One supporter typed: "A lot of people seem to be bashing this, but imagine the memories! like that’s so fun for kids!"

Another joked: "Question: does it have to be vacation in order for us to make this?"

A third supporter added: "So fun!! The Philippines has a tradition similar to this called kamayan! The best way to feast! We use banana leaves instead of foil."

And a fourth joked: "This is the kind of family I’m trying to marry into."
