I was taken here during lunch and surprised at how not busy the place was...always a little skeptical but the tacos turned out to be great. This place is located in Arrogant Texan so it offers BBQ as well as Mexican food. I just got the basic combination fajita tacos and they were really tasty. I got the jalapeno ranch... More

Feels like a cantina....great decor and environment. They have a salsa and sauce bar that is unique too. Food was good. The specialize In fajitas so the menu is limited. Worth the visit for sure!

Across the street from Texas Tech, this place has great drinks, delicious food, a " nacho bar ", and excellent and courteous customer service. I can't wait for parents weekend in September ( I'll be back ).

I am from San Antonio and I love mexican food, this place is one of the few mexican food places in lubbock that I enjoy eating at because it reminds me of the food in SA. I really like the Naked Mamoth and I love their orginal salsa's

Went to Sazon's today for lunch with some coworkers. We ordered several different items. All came out quickly. The location is clean, but small. I really enjoy the salsa bar variety! I had the Beef Fajita Tacos on soft corn tortillas. They were good.
