Had a quick dinner here. The food and service were both excellent. I will go back again next time I'm in Spokane

We popped into El Comalon before heading to a concert at the casino. The service was friendly but it did not make up for the poor quality of food. The chips were stale and unappetizing. The pico de gallo appeared old and did not taste good. We ordered shrimp tacos and enchiladas. The tortillas were stale tasting and the sauces... More

For our last night in Spokane, we were craving Mexican food. Luckily we found this place in a strip mall area near our hotel. Friendly wait staff. Good menu with a variety of options. Reasonably priced. Not very busy, but not empty either. Just the right size crowd for us. We enjoyed our food and atmosphere. Not too loud with... More

Nothing special here, standard mexican fare with a side of beans and rice. I have to say that this is the first place I have been that charges for tortilla chip refills, first 2 baskets free then a charge - which doesn't sound like a big deal unless you have 4 or more people, chips can go fast. Service was... More

The virgin Pina Colada was awesome, but could use a little more pineapple juice and the seafood chimichanga was delicious. I loved their rice also. Salsa was just enough spicy. Loved it.

Friend & I had lunch at El Comalon today. Average digs but our meals were excellent and the service was outstanding. This is an authentic Mexican family restaurant. Lunch menu very reasonable cost. Good chips, sauce, & chopped veggies rounded out our tasty meal.

Loved the salsa and chips. Ate there many times during a 6 week stay in the area--everything we tried was good! Excellent drinks as well.

I have modest expectastion for any Mexican Restaurant located in Spokane, Washington. I anticipate that the menu will be "sanitized" to make it acceptable to people who have no experience eating ethnic foods. This restaurant did not meet even the most modest expectstions.. It is located in a strip mall adjacent to a large Wal Mart. The atmosphere, such as... More
