We were staying at the Marriott Hotel in Salinas, and we inquired at the front desk for some good Mexican Food that would be easy for us to find. That's how we ended up trying this place, and the Hotel was right. Very nice size portions for the $$$, we had take-out and enjoyed it back at the Hotel Room very much. All in all, a good experience, and friendly employees as well!

La Casa Del SazÃ³nÂ®, Inc. was created with the vision of establishing a family friendly restaurant. The main goal is to create authentic Mexican food with the highest quality local ingredients and to deliver the authentic regional taste of the Mexican cuis
This is a small restaurant apparently mainly used by the local Latino community and tucked away in the corner of a car park. The welcome was very friendly and the waitress took some time to ensure the table was really clean for us. I had the carnitas, pieces of roast pork with beans and rice, which was really good and came with super flour tortillas. My wife had a chicken burrito which she also really enjoyed. The sort of place you probably wouldn't consider unless, as in this case, it had been recommended but excellent food and excellent value. The closed sign went up around 8.15 that evening so not a place to arrive late.

came across this restaurant during my visit of downtown Salinas. I love old style Mexican food. not the tourist trade grap that you find in some cities. the food was not too hot. I could actually taste the food without that burning sensation . you can get it mild or hot here. the price for two dinners was comparable for two at carls jr. the food was good as well as the service. enjoyed my eats here.

We stopped for a late lunch en route to southern CA. The food was very tasty; everything seemed fresh. Like other review say, it is a small, simple place but it is the quality of the food that counts.

Like many immigrants who came to this country in hopes of opportunity and a better life, the Moncada's migrated to this country from Mexico in the early 60's with the same mentality and in pursuit of the of the American dream. Similar to many immigrants,
We got burritos, which come with refried pintos and rice and your choice of about 6 salsas. Choose your meat. Add ins like avocado are extra. 2 burritos set us back $8. Although the burritos are not huge, they were perfect for us midafternoon after a substantial hike in Garland Ranch Park. Unexpectedly delicious. REALLY hit the spot. Not much Mex in Carmel, and we knew we had to leave town to get the good stuff. Salinas does not disappoint!
