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

Great ambience, service, and food. The food was flavorful and the drinks were tasty. The waitress was friendly and the food food came out quickly. The restaurant is pricey though.

Dinner out with the 2 Friends always touches my heart. 3 Stars there. Server was on point. We Never waited or had to ask for anything. He just knew and was attentive. So-so parts though some avoidable and some not: Salsa was watery and messy. Drinks had more ice than their signature tequila. Tequila flight was interesting and came with... More

Located inside Tysons Mall. This Richard Sandoval restaurant features delicious Mexican Fare in a warm and comfortable environment. Limited brunch menu is priced well and offers drink specials too.

The the taste and the quality of the food here is mediocre at best, and it was expensive. I would say this place is not worth the calories and definitely not the cost. I got what the waiter recommended: the lunch trio with chile relleno, enchilada, quesadilla. The enchilada had braised beef which had a tinny flavor that rendered it... More

This was one of the worst places I have ever eaten. The service was deplorable and rude and the food worse. Everything was overcooked and the waiter took our chips and salsa away before I even tasted them. Never again.
