“Quality”
Reviewed July 8, 2012 via mobile

Everything is good. Hidden little jewel in the gazebo shopping center at the beginning of mid-town. Mom and pop operation. It also has limited outdoor seating.

“delicious food”
Reviewed June 25, 2012

If you are looking for authentic Mexican cuisine, El Comal is the place! Family owned and operated, it is consistently delicious food in a very casual setting.
