Great place of lively dinner with friends

Went with friends for a relaxing dinner before going out downtown. We were in large group but service was good and no one had any issues with their orders. Food was good, price were average, but best part of the place was the live music. It was entertaining and set the mood for a fun night, and not... read more

The lunch tables were nearly full when we got there. The specials are reasonably priced, and the staff was quick and attentive. The food was passable but nothing extraordinary. It is not a place to have a conversation, too loud, and the tables are too close together. But it was conveniently located right next to the State Region 2 classrooms... More

We are eating here now. We had to get up and get silverware from another table because we were never brought any. I ordered a Dr. Pepper to drink and 10 minutes after ordering, my boyfriend received his lemonade but I was told they're out of DP. So I ordered a Coke and another 5 minutes goes by before the...

Had a business dinner here for 40 people. We had one person taking care of us. Food was an hour late because she was too busy filling drinks and tatting chips and salsa. When it was time to pay the bill they kept the deposit to hold the room even when they told me on their phone it would be... More

We go here several times a month for lunch or dinner. They offer good lunch specials and great drink specials each night. It is conveniently located in downtown with ample paid parking but limited free parking in the lot directly in front of the business. Be careful when pulling out of their parking lot. Go slow and at an angle... More

We ordered stuffed Avocado but it was barely warm, the corn chips were partly delicious with some rancid ones mixed in. Salsas were flavorless and odd tasting. Chicken soup was lukewarm , not much flavor, with a tomato core in it. For some reason we ordered Fried Ice Cream and the coating was stale- inedible! We will not come again

When Dos Comales first opened I loved it. But the last time we were there the food was still OK but he menus were worn and dirty. I was really put off before I ordered. I do not think we will be back

My husband and I decided to eat here because our hotel room wasn't ready. My husband ordered the shrimp cocktail and I had the Mexican plate with one beef enchilada, 1 puffy taco, 1 chalupa, spanish rice and charro beans. I got a margarita which came with little side shot and my husband had the beer. Our waitress was very... More

I have been here several times. After horrendous service the first time, I went back a few months later and had a better experience. So I have returned. What I will say is this: when you want a quick fast lunch and are not picky, they can usually do the job. They offer several mexican plate lunch specials, all under... More
