The Spicy Grill Restuarant chain was launched in 1992 by hometown-girl-made-good Maria Sanchez, who based the menu of her first restaurant on a fusion of Spanish and Thai cuisine she learned while traveling with the circus. Sanchez was able to expand to multiple restaurants following the great sucess of her first location in the historic section of downtown Springfield, and continues to do so while giving back to our local community through fundraising and multiple charities.
