We sat on patio and wanted to try the appetizers. Mushroom soup was a waste. Must have been low on mushrooms. The pasole was excellent. Poured a bit of pasole into mushroom soup added chips and salsa and had a pretty good dish.

This place is a tourist trap and overrated. The waitress was rude and the food terrible. Go to Tomasitas instead!
