They clearly had read that study that said that if you keep the noise level at a certain decibel, the customers will not stay too long and they took it to HEART. The music was UNBEARABLE from OUTSIDE the venue and I thought that maybe they were just trying to attract people to the restaurant who were walking by. No. It was the same inside. We had to shout our orders to the waiter, ate our food, and left. It was not what you would call an enjoyable experience. The food was good, I think. Not the best Mexican food I've had for probably twice the price of the good stuff, but the staff was nice, and I have NO IDEA how they were able to work a full shift in that noise.

The restaurant confirmed our reservation for 10 on a Saturday afternoon. We were seated as soon as we arrived and greeted immediately by a server. Our drinks were continuously replenished without us having to ask, and our meals came out on time, together, and were delicious. I will happily eat here again!

The server had her thumb in my beans. She had to have noticed because she had it all over her finger when she took her hand off my plate. I should have said something but I just let it go. Still grossed me out especially at a time like this. It’s no longer worth the money.

The chips were fresh, the salsa was great, and then we got to the main course. The carne asada had great flavor, and my date moaned with his first bite of his burrito. Being inside a mall, the noise level is high, but I would definitely go back.

I understand the staffing shortages, but we went 15-20 minutes after asking for refills on our drinks before getting refills. Not a game changer, but it made the meal less enjoyable to be without any drinks for 1/3 of the meal.

Our server was very friendly and they allowed us to bring our own birthday cake! They even gave us candles and let us sing happy birthday. Food was great and the drinks were incredible. Not very noisy and just a great place to have dinner. Would definitely recommend! The only minor thing I would say was I was seated on the booth/couch seating and I’m 5’11 and I felt like I was sinking in the seat. After sitting for 3 hours it was a little uncomfortable. But other than that a great place!

Server was borderline surly, quite rude to my Mom when she reminded him she’d please like more salsa to go with the tortilla chips. Overall, a “meh” experience that literally left a sour taste in my mouth.

The only item they could improve is the lemonade that came with the kids meals. They didn't like it because it was watery. I tried it and didn't think it was even lemonade. The staff were friendly and the place was really clean.

I asked to be away from any serving areas and kitchen. A sullen teenage hostess seated us right next to the servers area. The day was saved with a decent waiter and excellent food. Would I return? Maybe but competition is fierce with good restaurants so why put up with so-so customer service? You can do better La Sandia.
