I stopped by Flaco's this week to meet a friend "who will go un-named for bailing on me" for breakfast. Anyjuaysss. I ordered 2 tacos, one machacado and the other, bean, egg and bacon. As I was waiting for my tacos I had a good scoop of their red salsa. It looked fresh and sausssaay...but to my disappointment, it was worst than Pace Pecante sauce. It was really tomatoey and bland. The tortilla chips weren't the freshest either.
My tacos arrived and to my surprise they were nice and full. Not bad for 2 bucks. I tried the machado or as they described it beef jerky and eggs. It was mostly eggs and tomato and lacked a lot of the carne, making it the blandest machacado I've ever had. Kinda dissapointing. Next up, my Go-2-taco: bean, egg and bacon. The bacon was crispy and thick but again the bland consistency kept creeping up; the eggs and even the beans were pretty tasteless.
I've always passed by Flaco's and I've never been drawn to it. Now I know why.
