Over the years I have visited this restaurant from time to time when me and the kids are looking for a change of pace in eating out. I highly recommend this restaurant not only for its quaint and cozy atmosphere , but also for its delicious food and great service. Alanzan is an outstanding place to go if you would... More

Small Mexican restaurant run by a lovely family. Just around the corner from the busy Hwy 123 but very popular with the locals.

The food is quite good and the staff is wonderful. A good choice for traditional tex-mex. Avoid the margaritas, unless you like them made with margarita mix

We were looking for information on another restaurant in Seneca, SC, this afternoon and stumbled on reviews of El Alazan Mexican Restaurant. After reading them we decided to have an early dinner there. We enjoy Mexican food, but so many in the area all have essentially the same menu. One look at the menu and we couldn't wait. The hard...

I lived in San Antonio for a couple of years, so I am a little picky when it comes to Mexican food. The food here is authentic and fresh. The lunch specials are a great price and good size portions. The regular meals are large enough for two, so when we get take out we plan for that. Everything we... More

Nothing fancy here, but good food at very reasonable prices. Take-out is available as well as table service. Service is good and the place is neat and very clean. Special deals on beers from time to time. Local Mexicans choose to eat here, so you can count on authentic Mexican home-cooking.

The atmosphere isn't much, but the food is very good and the wait staff very attentive. Probably the best Mexican food we have had in a long time. The added menu has some dishes you won't find anywhere else, including some fish dishes that are excellent. Prices are very reasonable and they also have draft beer, a big plus. I... More

Quick service in a casual atmosphere. The menu has your favorite Mexican dish. Tables can be pulled together to accomodate the whole crowd.
