Our Mission

La Casa Del Sazón® 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 true authentic taste of the Mexican cuisine parallel to the motherland. La Casa Del Sazón® knows that customers come first and we are committed to provide distinctive quality service. Our mission is best described by our motto:

 "It's like eating at home!"

 

Our Story

We started in 2005 with a Disco de Arado, a cooking instrument used in Mexico and Latin America that consists of a giant iron disc heated outdoors over a wood fire. In 2005, a cousin asked our family to cook tacos for a family event. It was that afternoon in the City of Salinas that the inspiration for a new kind of restaurant was born. That same afternoon, our family was hired to cook tacos for another family event. Before the family knew it, we had established a taquero business. Two years later, the family saw an opportunity that would allow them to bring authentic regional Mexican cuisine to the heart of the Salinas Valley. In September 2007, La Casa Del Sazon® was open for business at Romie Lane in Salinas, CA.

We made our home in the little restaurant on 22 West Romie Lane, and for the next five years people came in out of this small establishment, sometimes waiting to taste our delicious food. Given our inspiration for cooking authentic regional Mexican food, and our passion for innovation and freshness, it was necessary to expand. Upon searching for the right place, we opened our second location in Oldtown Salinas in September of 2012. We are now celebrating our 9th anniversary thanks to our loyal and awesome customers from the Salinas Valley and beyond!
