Guide Review - La Sandia Mexican Kitchen & Bar

La Sandia features home-style Mexican dishes in a festive setting with vibrant colors and contemporary lighting. The restaurant is a step above most mall dining establishments. The food is more authentic then typical Mexican fare and the decor is inviting and dynamic. The menu includes a nice selection of appetizers, salads, tacos, enchiladas, burritos, fajitas and traditional Mexican dishes such as Chicken Mole, Pork Carnitas, and Chicken Relleno. Highly recommended dishes include the Tacos Baja (beer battered tilapia fish, chipotle aioli, pico de gallo and Mexican slaw) and shrimp quesadillas. Don't miss the strawberry margaritas which are made with fresh fruit.
