I come where Mexican food is pretty easy to find, lots of options. The food was pretty okay, the service was very slow. Small little bowl of chips, salsa looked store bought. Not too much seating, without any windows. Plenty of parking, full bar.

I went to the El Comedor this week very disappointed food not served hot. Owner burned out. Employees change often. Owner taking short steps in food flavor and quality. Found very large pieces of chicken cartridge in Lolita. Poor labor pool in Great Falls. Hope she can fix things.

The El Comedor is a hidden gem! It was my first time here and it did not disappoint. I had a tamale, Chile relleno and a Fluffy taco. The tamale was amazing! The Chile relleno was huge. It had to be almost a half a pound. The Fluffy taco is light and airy. I can't wait to eat here again!

Sadly, it is no more. My wife and I have been coming here since we graduated College and got married. 36 years. We have had our last meal there. The cheese sauce on the nachos must have changed, because the last two times it was horrible. The "fluffy" (their iconic taco) was greasy on the shell and stick in your... More

Ok, if you like shredded iceberg lettuce... it is even in the guacamole. Big "Nope" for me on a lot of things! NOT authentic, cheddar shred, bland bland bland.... fluffy taco = terrible! Do NOT go here if you like true Mexican food.

We love visiting Great Falls and one of the reasons is El Comedor. We are vegan, but we find lots of things on the menu that we can eat and that we love. We had a vegetarian taco. It was so good. I can still taste it now. I will dream of fluffy tacos.

This place was recommended to us by a local. I'm not sure why! My husband actually enjoyed his meal, but that's because he poured the very hot green sauce (that sits on each table), all over his food. My food was very tasteless and a bit dry. I ordered their "iconic" fluffy taco. It was interesting, but difficult to eat.... More

Traditionally good Mexican food. We had the fluffy taco and the chili relano. Both very good. The chips were ok. The salsa fresh. The waitress service was below average. She forgot the cheese dip we ordered and when we asked for more salsa and chips, she was appeared shocked. She was very standoffish the whole time. We ordered the margaritas,... More

I could eat these every day. They are just awesome. They're huge and incredibly addicting. But, you have to hit them with the amazing hot sauce. It's like no other. We come there every trip to GF, and more often than not, we come here several times before we have to go. A must eat in Great Falls.

We stopped here for dinner on our way from Billings to East Glacier. It was the perfect mid trip break for us. We dropped in at dinner time on a Sunday. It was not too busy and service was quick and friendly. Food was plentiful and above average for most of the meal. For some reason, the beans and rice... More
