so we knew comal was popular and on a sunday evening the wait was an hour. decent text message system to let us know it is our time. the restaurant holds alot of people without feeling squeezed especially at the tables. the bathroom system is very different with the sinks separated from multiple individual restrooms. i actually like this system. the wait staff was very competent. the food was average. let's just say if you really want mexican food you are probably better off at one of the taco trucks that are much more authentic. of course comal is not saying it is authentic but rather the twist of using the locally sourced, natural ingredients. despite this my take on food is the taste no matter the venue from $ to $$$$ as well as the value. we are a family of 4, all adults with no drinks ordered. our meal before taxes and tips was $81. we had the chips with guacamole and salsa. i couldn't discern if the chips were made on site or not, the 3 salsas were actually very good while the guacamole i feel is subpar. essentially anybody that makes their own guacamole probably makes a better guacamole than any restuarant. the other food we ordered were the carnitas tacos and the carnitas enchiladas. the presentation was great and the ingredients were also good but i felt the taste was lacking. the guajillo adobo spareribs, while not inexpensive, is a large serving. not exactly what you would expect as "mexican" but the best dish we ordered. i will say that it tastes better fresh from the kitchen because the leftover ribs we brought home definitely showed their sodium content, an issue with other reviewers. overall i would say i was disappointed with the food. obviously this won't prevent people from packing the place, but then again i'm sure alot of them wouldn't consider trying a taco truck in a neighborhood they probably would never venture to.
