Sazon - Austin, TX


78704 neighbors are slowly discovering this new gem.

"One yardstick I use to evaluate the quality of Mexican restaurants is their preparation of the style of chile relleno I prefer. At Sazón, the chile rellenos ($9.29) are made with perfectly roasted, peeled, and seeded poblano peppers stuffed with a choice of cheese, beef picadillo, or chicken."

Austin Chronicle

Small eatery one of the best Mexican restaurants in town.

"The meal was so superior to the typical Mexican fare that I'm eager to return for other items such as the cochinita pibil and an omelet made with huitlacoche. Sazón is a new pearl in Austin, a place that is alive with vibrant flavors and appealing dishes."


No wonder the place was sizzling...

"My dish of pork tips bathed in a hot, red sauce was divine, as were the refried black beans and simple, unadorned white rice. Even the frozen margarita was superior."
