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

I had dinner here a couple of days ago and the waiter was very accommodating and since we were on a time limit, he managed to get us in and out in about an hour, which we were very happy about. I had the cheese enchiladas and they were really good.

We went for lunch at most seven tables were occupied. The food was good but the staff was horrible in my opinion. It took forever to get the check, and not to mention we didn't even get a refill on our drinks. Very poor customer service.

This place was great! It was only a short walk from the hotel, had excellent service and the food was tasty, hot and came out promptly. prices were what you'd expect for a Mexican food restaurant. I find a good indication of the restaurants abilities lie in their charro beans. Theirs were excellent - not overdone and carefully spiced without... More

Best shrimp cocktail ever. Tons of nice shrimp and avacado in a tangy cocktail sauce ( home made?). I will go back just for that!

I are here because it was close to workshop I was at. We had 10 people at our table. I ordered soft tacos on corn tortillas. They brought my order with flour tortillas. The chicken on taco was dry and bland. I won't be back.

Entire family enjoyed the atmosphere and most importantly the food! We walked from Best Western Grand Marina hotel which is good because the parking lot is not easy to maneuver! Kids' meals were huge! Actually, maybe a little too much for small children but adults at the table happily helped them finish.
