At Milagros restaurant in Orem, on the wall as you enter the dining room, you will find a very unique automated flying chile hanging on the wall.  Yes, a flying chile that moves it wings.  This unusual work of art was created by Guy Francis.

However, we at Milagros take birthdays very seriously, that is if you are a part of the Milagros team.
