“Good Mexican food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 11, 2014

We always go to El Comal. The food is really good, and the atmosphere is fun. Service is good, too. I've never had to wait too long to get a table.

“A pleasant surprise”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 4, 2014

We had not planned on eating here; it was a last minute decision as we could not determine the Mexican restaurant where we had planned on eating. The chicken quesadillas are excellent as was our other food. The service was very good. It's a rather small establishment, but cozy. Not really a bad thing, but I was in the mood for a margarita and they do not serve any sort of alcohol if that is a major desire on your part. I just thought it would be nice since I was on vacation. Highly recommend.

“Good Food”

The atmosphere was good and the taco salad was really good. My mom also really liked the chicken enchiladas. The staff was very nice and attentive and the price was very reasonable.

“Good spot for authentic Mexican food in Ruidoso”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2014

Food was very good and brought out quickly. The restaurant is very clean and the staff is friendly. It was pouring rain when we were there so we didn't get to enjoy the beautiful little patio out back but it looks like a nice, relaxing place to enjoy a beer and dinner on a warm summer night.
