I had the chicken enchiladas w/mole sauce and Charro beans. The mole was very good, but the Charro beans were just o.k. My husband had the Alambres de Res (skewered beef) which he enjoyed. The Margaritas are very good, too, not sweet like a lot of places. We sat on the patio because the inside area smelled like decades old... More

Dinner on Saturday Jan 28th. Ordered creme of corn soup - used to be wonderful, but all 4 orders arrived lukewarm. Waitress was super nice and got them warmed up. Food came next. Corn tortillas homemade, excellent! Enchiladas came with long hair in it. Showed waitress and she said (in nice, polite tone) what do you want me to do?... More

Original menu includes Mayan/Yucatan dishes, not the usual gringo faux fajitas with bell peppers and from the gallon can pureed pintos common in so many places. Chile rellenos stuffed with rice and meat, not Veveeta, etc. Puerco in chili cascabel, tacos al pastor, pescado tikin xik, and many others, all good. Live music by guitarist/singer Angel on Fridays, nice selections... More

Good variety of dishes in the menu. My chili rellenos were great. We had a good variety of good on the table and all dishes were fully eaten. Excellent service that was prompt and friendly. Indoor and outdoor seating. Good salsa.

They specialize in real Mexican interior cuisine Try the Cochinita Pibil or the Pollo Pipian Verde -- they are both delicious representations of interior-style Mexican cooking. There are some TexMex selections on the menu as well - the fajitas and tacos al carbon are both reliable. Courteous and friendly service in a very relaxed atmosphere. Great margaritas too.

I think I am in trouble when I walk into a restaurant and there is no one there. That is what it was like last night, a Sunday. The waitress was friendly, and attentive. The chips and hot sauce delicious. The drinks, a frozen margarita, great. The cheese enchiladas were terrific. Each person at the table loved their meal. Was... More

Sazon has, without a doubt, the best breakfast tacos in all of Austin. The bacon, egg, and cheese is the best deal and most filling in town. Also, their salsa routinely wins awards.

I took a client into Sazon about a month ago, spending over $200 there. As I was squeezing by the narrow space between the bar and the wall, my shirt snagged on the wall texturing and ripped. Margarito, the owner offered to have the shirt fixed. I thought that was really nice (and appropriate) so, the next day, I drove... More

We had a great dinner at Sazon recently, sitting outside by Lamar (traffic was a bit loud). The decor is pretty bare-bones, but the service was excellent - attentive without being intrusive. We had delicious starters, a creamy corn soup and the bean sopecitos, followed by enchiladas verde, chicken mole and cochinita pibil. My husband said the mole was some... More

As per my wont, I tried this place out for breakfast today. The bad thing was they had a very limited menu compared to most of the other Mexican restaurants I've frequented. I didn't ask for clarifications, so maybe they might have had options that weren't printed. But I didn't see much of anything more exotic than bacon, sausage, potatoes,... More
