I'm not a chef, but I've worked in restaurants. In my experience, restaurants like to protect their work product, including recipes. I'm sure you can find a good recipe online. Good luck!

Description
Modern Mexican featuring both traditional and innovative Fresh, made on premise food (even the chips and salsas). Grilled seafood and fajita steaks plus shrimp stuffed jalapenos are specialties. Burritos are filled with flavorful ingredients. A good selection of both Vegetarian and Vegan items available plus gluten free options. Over 30 years of serving great food and margaritas. We are small, friendly and delicious. Outdoor bluestone awning covered flower filled patio is seasonal and dog friendly.
