We went here during Spring Break with our 7 and 9 year olds. Everyone loved what they got. We ordered steak & chicken fajitas, cheese enchiladas, kids trio (steak taco, soup and salad), kids chicken tenders. My daughter is extremely picky and she loved the chicken tenders and rice, so much so that she ate my rice too. My son... More

I do not understand what the big deal is about this type of establishment. I am not a fan of taking perfectly serviceable genres and turning it into "haute cuisine". The food was okay, the service was okay, it was all okay, but nothing made this place any better than the any other of thousands of other Mexican joints.

We had reservations and were seated immediately on arrival. Joshua took very good care of us and helped us pick meals based on the diverse needs of our group. Good ambiance, nice music... A really nice place to kick back, have some drinks and good food after long day of shopping!

We had dinner at this place some years ago and we liked it. They have a nice lunch menu. The Margarita was a real drink, not just plain lemonade with some tequila "drops". My wife had a nice combo plate and for myself I tried the shrimp ceviche. Because of the prior day snow the mall was empty as well... More

Menu and appearance looked very enticing. However, the food was below average. It was not served hot, nor was it very authentic. Rather in appearance and taste the food was a warm well plated version of frozen Hispanic food. To make matters worse the service was terrible - both slow and incompetent (failed to bring silverware or drinks). On the... More

La Sandia is a awesome Mexican restaurant at tysons mall. I love their guacamole and the enchiladas. The service is a hit and miss. Sometimes you get a good server sometimes not that much. But what it matters is the food...so its sooo worth going.

We've been twice--several months apart. I think the best thing they have going is a really helpful and pleasant staff. The food is Ok, but it's not enough to make me want to become a regular. Too many better options within feet of this location.

We like La Sandia in Denver so we were pleased to try it here in Virginia. Good Mexican food that isn't loaded with salt and offers some vegetarian options. Located inside the Tysons Corner Center Mall, and an easy stop on the Silver line Metro, near our hotel. Nice decor, great guacamole, good fish tacos, and hubby especially enjoyed his... More

I travel and have gone to countless Mexican restaurants. I was shopping and hungry and stumbled across this place. Didn't expect it to be this good. First, starters..Salsa was excellent and Sangria was the best i have ever had. Thought for sure it would go down hill from there as it typically does. I ordered the shrimp fajitas, which were...
