La Sandia

One of the things I like best about Colorado summers is the opportunity they provide to sit outside on restaurant patios...today was a perfectly sunny, warm Colorado day so I was able to do just that for lunch with some good friends.  I'm kicking myself that I didn't snap a photo of the terrific view of the mountains, but it was beautiful...blue skies, lots of sun...and a shaded / cover patio for us to sit under.

La Sandia is a great Mexican restaurant that has both an upstairs and main floor outdoor patio / bar area.  They make guacamole table side, provide sangria by the pitcher, and have fabulous food!  This was the first time I'd been on a weekend, so was able to try out their brunch menu...
Iron Skillet Tacos with potatoes, eggs, onions, cilantro, chorizo sausage, flour tortillas, black beans, salsa verde and salsa rojas...it was delicious!   And I always love their presentations...
Ashley's choice...tortilla soup, cheese enchilada and chicken tinga taco...
 And Dean's choice...chicken quesadillas...with a Coors Light... :)

 the blue skies turned somewhat cloudy by the time we left, but it was still a great day...

Thanks Dean & Ashley for a fun birthday lunch!

It all looks delicious- especially the way it is on the plate, but no Corona or Dos Equis? ;)

I passed on the beer this time - but I was all over the sangria ~ SO good! :)
