La Sandia (Tysons 1 mall)

This restaurant just opened yesterday. There isn't a web-page for it yet but it serves the same menu as La Sandia in Denver, except a little more expensive.

I ordered the combination plate of Tacos Baja (fish), Beef Enchilada, Chicken Tamal, and an Tacos Alambre (skirt steak).

Fiancee ordred a tacos combination platter of Grilled Chicken, Grilled Skirt Steak and Taco al Pastor.

This restaurant makes an attempt at being authentic and upscale, which results in tiny tiny tacos without a lot of flavor. The chicken and beef tacos were bland. The fish taco was way fishy for fried tilapia. Only the Taco al Pastor was good.

On the other hand, the enchilada and tamale were both tasty, although a bit on the small side.

The chips are pretty thick, almost like pita chips.

If you're shopping and you want Mexican but you don't want Chipotle, then give this place a try. I wouldn't go out of my way to eat there though.
