We went for an early-lunch recently, arrived about 10:20am, and dined in. The floor in the main dining-in area was being damp-mopped as we walked in, but was dry and accessible after ordering (with our ordering being a touch delayed, as the woman mopping, was the same woman taking orders at the deli counter). After ordering, we chose to sit... More

I have been going to El Comal for several years now, first to get fresh Totillas, and peppers, Elsa started with occasional snacks, presented for free to her loyal customers, many who just liked to hang out and enjoy the aromas and flavors of Mexican food, and to enjoy the hispanic atmosphere, where Spanish is spoken more than English at...
