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...

I have been to all the restaurants around this location and we finally visited yesterday. They do Mexican food well. Particularly kid friendly kids portion with lots of variety. HIghly recommended.

Late night, holiday rush. Great food. Wasn't sure what to make of this place and then I read that it was celebrity-chef owned. You could tell. The rice and beans were very special and so too were the enchiladas. I liked the salsa because it was well-rounded and a bit spicy. Great atmosphere, very impressed with this place. Alas, too...

Food was good but our waitress ( Andrea) was superb - thoughtful, attentive and very pleasant . We had a vege taco which was excellent and the tortilla soup which was better than average. Nachos were crisp but we were charged extra for the habanero sauce !!

Had come because of friends recommendation. And while tasty, was expecting a bit more. Wait staff attentive and helpful. Had the luncheon plate with good quesadilla. The chilli rellano was less than stellar. Guacamole- made at your table that was very good, but pricey. Fish tacos were well stuffed. Good number of couples and families there.

OK Mexican food if you want a sit down meal. Better than the tumultuous food court. reasonable prices and attentive wait staff. I chug a lot of diet Coke when eating Mexican and the waitress was right there with a refill. Had the guacamole that was excellent despite the price. Made at your table and very yummy. My wife and...

Stopped in here for lunch the other day. They have a reasonable lunch special called "vamanos." Several appetizers and main dishes to chose from for $9.99. Very good value. Service was good but they never delivered my drink with my meal so I stayed with the water only since I was tight for time. The chips and salsa were more... More
