Excellent food!

My wife and I enjoyed a delicious dinner. Our first clue that it was a great place to stop was the motorcycles parked outside. I had a BBQ sandwich with that was done to perfection however my wife's was ever better. She had the smoked pork burrito that was awesome. This is truly a place to stop... read more

I was told by the hotel host the Comet is the "best restaurant in Santa Rosa." I know that there's not a lot of choices in this town, but I have a hard time believing this. The waitress was slow in coming to our table even though she didn't appear to be doing any work. On the positive side, the... More

We were driving through Santa Rosa on our way back to Texas from Las Vegas. The timing was perfect for lunch and we trusted Trip Advisor's good reviews for Comet II. We discounted the reviews complaining about slow service. If you want fast service go to a fast food drive through! If you want great food then you should try... More

We had an outstanding meal and the wait staff was exceptionally nice. If we had stayed another night we would have returned to this restaurant again.

Not really a drive-in. Good food, clean and friendly. Reasonably priced. Food is prepared to order and very tasty.

This is a small town general restaurant with American fare and Mexican choices on the menu. The best part was the homemade pies.

Wasn't very impressed. Service was slow.food was mediocre. We ordered 3 chicken chimichangas and they each had one very small piece of chicken in it. Very disappointing! Chip & salsa were yummy.

Return visit to enjoy another cup of chile verde which is so delicious. The salsa was extra spicy this time...a different batch of peppers I guess. Always clean, fast and delicious. The natillas bonus dessert is worth the stop alone. Comet is a little far from my hometown but I wish it were closer. Try it...delicious.

Nice place with very good service. Was hoping for some really good New Mexican food, but was a bit underwhelmed. Mind you, having Celiac (gluten intolerance) my menu choices were limited, so I could not speak to the dishes with chili sauce, which probably would be more flavorful. My server was very helpful, who also had Celiac, so I felt... More
