Clean, good prices, very friendly helpful staff. The Mexican dishes are great, the non Mexican dishes not as great, just average. It's worth the drive from motels on east side of town, maybe three minutes extra. But, if in New Mexico, gotta dine local. A fairly unique steak and enchilada combo. We had two young boys, seven and eight. Waitresses... More

The salsa was good. A little kick. The chili Verde soup was very good it was spicy but I liked it that way. The peach pie was good. A real flaky crust. I ordered the complete meal with hot sauce I thought I was ordering a sauce that wasn't as hot but I read the menu wrong. I didn't really... More

We are just passing through Santa Rosa and checked out the reviews on Trip Advisor before stopping. Comet II has a 'home town' feel, and we were the only folks who didn't have a New Mexico license tag. It is very clean inside and the booths are comfortable. We were greeted and seated at once and the waitress was very... More

We have dined at this location every time we travel through Santa Rosa. It is the BEST food in town. The last time we were there ,11-3-2016, we were served by wonderful twins that knew their menu, and made the evening a great dining experience. The food is the best that we had in a week of travelling in New... More

We went here at about 8:30pm. There was nobody else but us in the restaurant. Normally this would a red flag, but the reviews were good. I got the smothered chicken fried steak. My girlfriend got a smothered burrito. The food was excellent. I love green chile. The green chile was delicious. The staff was courteous and helpful. A good... More

While traveling on I-40 and approaching dinner time the wife searched and found the Comet restaurant in Santa Rosa. We arrived and we're quickly seated. Throughout the meal the wait staff was very friendly and constantly took care of our needs. The food was very good and authentic and delivery to the table was speedy. The prices were very reasonable... More
