We love El Sazon. The food is very very good and the prices are very very good. The staff is always been very friendly. I love the chicken chimichangas. My husband usually orders everything else. Their sweet tea is really good!

The service could have been better, but the food was worth the wait and the price was reasonable. I'd return before or after a flight or if staying at a local hotel

Our group was seated outside on the patio which can be noisy with the airport but you won't disturb anyone. A waiter who happily suggests preferences regarding choices but not based on price is a good sign. He also took our entire tables orders without...More
