We came in on a Saturday night with a party of 10 and a baby they had no problem seating us. Service was quick food was served promptly and delicious Mexican cuisine. Surprise birthday celebration in our party brought the whole restaurant staff to the table to sing and celebrate. Definately go again when in town.

We liked the patio, despite the fact that smoking is allowed (the tables are not too close) and the street noise, as the outdoor seating is just relaxing. They didn't rush us, so we could finish our Margaritas and guacamole before ordering the entree. The food was not outstanding but good; service was fine and prices were adequate.

I have stopped here to eat a couple of times after biking the Maryville/ Alcoa greenway. The food and service are always good.

I live in Maryville (right outside of Alcoa), and there are a few different Mexican restaurants that are closer to me, but none compare to El Sazon. It is ALWAYS worth the extra 10 minute drive to get there, because their food is AMAZING. Their chips and salsa are to die for, the wait staff are very friendly and attend... More

My hubby had the chicken fajitas and loved them and I had the chicken enchiladas verde...soooo good! The salsa is fresh and very good. Service was... More
