Good New Mexican foood

Our hotel clerk recommended this restaurant, and we were glad she did! A good old cafe look, the food was very good. The only reason it didn't get excellent was that they don't serve a la carter items, and the meals are huge!

The menu was extensive with a lot of variety including some very nice Mexican options. The food was very good, wonderful taste and large portions. We went away very satisfied. The service was great as the staff were very helpful and friendly. The atmosphere and decor were also very cool for a bit of Route 66 dining. Give it a... More

First time to try this place, but recommended by a former resident. We were pleased! We started w/ the chips (tasted VERY fresh) and salsa (a little spicy). My husband had the green chili stew -- it was served steaming hot, had a nice flavor and a spicy kick. I had the smothered burrito with the green sauce. It was... More

Great atmosphere, clean and comfortable. The wait staff was great, provided recommendations, and completely patient with the younger children in our group. Each entree looked fantastic and desert was included! We will be adding this restaurant to our Santa Fe travel tradition!

Ate here earlier this month with a group of dive buddies. Service left a lot to be desired, but it seems that a few of the staff were off work for Christmas parties, so that may have been the problem. I've always been pleased with the variety at Santa Rosa restaurants, and Comet II was no exception. Not too many... More

I was encouraged to go to this restaurant by a friend. I found a long black hair in my salad. Sad to say the hard way. Yes as I was chewing. I pointed out to the waitress and she was not very caring. I had a hamburger steak for my entree and it was ok at best. The mashed potatoes... More

Based on other customer reviews we tried the tacos and the green chile stew and were not disappointed. We got our order to go and ordered some cherry pie because it looked scrumptious but our mistake we did not check the bag before we left the restaurant and they did not give us our pie even though we paid for...

The food was good. But the prices were high for Mexican food in this area. We walked out paying 30.00 for only 2 entrees and drank ice water. I shared my meal with my daughter. It certainly was real authentic Mexican food though.

We had a Cherry Pie and an Apple Pie at this picturesque cafe on Route 66 - They were really excellent and delicate - excellent friendly service also. The menu is really varied and has a lot of interesting local dishes - wished I was hungry for more!

I had never eaten at the Comet II before but I wanted to try it out. I was not disappointed. There were only a few people in the restaurant at the time but they all looked like they were enjoying themselves. I ordered a New Mexican favorite, Green Chile Stew, and was very happy with my choice. It was flavorful... More
