Management contends that all food is prepared fresh daily, and extra time may be required to prepare some entrees.  Not all Mexican food is hot, some of it is prepared to be hot, some is not, but with fresh ingredients it is hard to predict the spicy temperature of the foods due to the fact that the fresh ingredients vary on every harvest.     NOT AVAILABLE
