The salsa tasted ok. The flavors were mild and milder. I got the number 9. Tasted good. Very filling.

Machaca chimi: giant portion of beef but very dry. Would have been better with a reasonable serving of sour cream and guac. Taco salad with shredded beef was nice but unremarkable. Salsa very thin and watery. Good thing was I didn't have to cook.
