Dial back the heat, amigos!! The last few times I've been there the salsa has been unbearably HOT (spicy). If you're trying to save $$, cut portion size and don't allow refills. Making it so hot that you can't eat it is only going to cause waste. I know I've had to leave mine sitting on the table several times because it was too hot. I've mentioned it to staff and nothing has changed. Anyone know the owners and can pass this 411 along?

Im a ShArK, what in the devil are you talking about? Their salsa is way too mild. I have to add quite a bit of hot sauce just to enjoy it. I say make it hotter like it should be. You obviously must not realize that Mexican food is spicy, and made that way to be enjoyed.

Maybe you should stay at home at prepare your own Mexican dish. Old El Paso has an extra mild salsa for you. But if you still want to give them another try, why not just use ketchup on your corn chips?

Lastly, I recommend that if you can't take the heat, stay out of the restaurant.

What a lightweight!!!!!!!!!!

* To clarify, I meant cut portion and refills on the salsa, not the food itself. Serve smaller containers and don't bring out a second one when the first runs out.

Why don't you ask for some that isn't hot. That is what I do. I always ask that the salsa not be hot. You are in a Mexican restaurant. Mexicans think if you are there you like hsot food. Simple solution! Tell them what you want.(Common sense always prevails).

Why don't you buy a Mexican tv dinner and stay at home. Your comments are petty.

You know, they do have mild salsa upon request.. Maybe you should try asking before you come online to bash them because of your own ignorance.

Good rule of thumb. (Tip) Never order Chinese in a Mexican restaurant.

Not a big salsa fan myself but in defense of the original poster he/she did say they have told staff before but it's still "hot." This post seemed light-hearted so I doubted this person was "bashing" anyone. Everyone on this site is so quick to jump and be rude to people. I didn't know they had different levels of salsa there either so that's nice to know!
It is called common sense. Everyone is suppose to have a little. But you?????Always request what you want??? They can only say ""NO"". You probably dine at the Rainbo room.

Frock everybody and let's have some fiesta darn it. Spanish food in general is hot. So get ready for some flames and possible indigestion if you are not use to. I'm Hispanic but not Mexican and their food kick ass. El puerto is the best Mexican restaurant in the area. I have tried them all. Viva Mis vatos.

Personally I love the Mexican restaurant in Marion. It's affordable and the service is usually great. They have mild dishes for those who don't like spicy food.

The Mexican place in Marion is excellent. I really love their Chili Colorado.

I lived in Tucson for many years and love Sonoran style Mexican food. I've also worked in Mexico (Durango and Sonora). What many people don't understand is that Mexican food is much like cuisine here in the USA.

Different regions have different styles of food. Sonoran, Tex-Mex, Yucatan etc. The food in Mexico City is of a different style than you would find in Nogales.

Now if you want some spicy food then get some spicy Thai food or try some Indian food (India)...both use curry and it's great.:-)
