“Consistent value”
Reviewed October 3, 2012

My husband and I have eaten several times at Sazon and have never been disappointed in the quality or value of the food. A little noisy inside for us but there is an outside seating area with cover. Nothing fancy here, just attentive service and good Mexican food. For those of us who live in the area and also cook many Mexican dishes, you might consider this average. On the other hand, my Maine friends would find this cuisine over the top for Mexican.

“Interior Mexican Food”
Reviewed February 21, 2012

Definitely not a fancy restaurant, but pretty good interior Mexican food. Much better than your usual tacos and chalupas. The Puerco en Chile Cazcabel was excellent - one of their house specials. Margaritas were just OK, wait staff was very attentive. Would go back.

“Good but not amazing Mexican food..”
Reviewed February 12, 2010

The crab empanadas were a big disappointment, I was hoping for awesomess, but somehow they were tasteless... our main courses were good, I had the cochinita pibil, which was good, but not great. The service was excellet, and the atmosphere very cozy!
