I went there for one thing and one thing only...Chili Releno. It was delicious. I personally thanked Larry the chef for his excellent meal. I think he was grateful

The painted exterior wall claims the best Mexican food in town. I think they must be wrong. The chicken enchiladas were OK but hubby turned his thumbs down over his pork enchiladas. The neon lights were cool.

The food here is amazing....everything is fresh & tasty. The sauces (red, green or Christmas) is New Mexican at its best. We had hue is rancheros, chimichanga & guacamole but all food served around us looked fabulous! One caveat, which is addressed in other reviews, is that the service is slow but if you can be patient & get past... More

We went to comet as recommended by locals ! Waitress never acknowledge us set ourselves. A young man named Joseph brought menus and was very polite waitress destiny on the other hand was very very rude and unprofessional. No customer service skills at all. Probably will not be back . Although food was pretty good. Would not recommend steaks

We waited at least 5 minutes for someone to acknowledge us and seat us. We finally seated ourselves. There were two people waiting on customers. At least look at us and smile and say just a minute or please seat yourselves. Woman waitress finally came to table and took our drink orders - we asked for water. At least she... More

I'm sure each restaurant has their own version of Mexican food and while this place was ok it just wasn"t what my husband and I were used to (and I don't mean Taco Bell). The chips and salsa were ok and like one person said the refills on the drinks weren't forthcoming but they gave you plenty of ice. I... More

Don't waste your time! Trip Advisor got this one all wrong. The food is adequate, but the service is a real disappointment! Once your food is delivered, good luck at getting a refill on your drink. Thank goodness they spare no expense with the amount of ice in your drink! Watched a family of five get their drinks, wait to... More

First off, if you ordered tacos at this place you seriously shorted yourself, No wonder you compare it to Taco Bell. You MUST order something smothered in the green chile sauce to even begin to rate this place. It was so good, I wanted to take a quart to go. True, the service may be a little slow at times... More

The service was slow when we first entered, but as more people came it it improved. Food was good. Had the hamburger and onion rings as recommended. Wanted a malt but they were out of malt.
