I'm not sure what I can add to the other reviews. The food is great and it is honestly better than being in Mexico. I disagree with the comments about bad service because I had just the opposite experience. However, I speak a little Spanish...More

This restaurant is so authentic its menu board is in Spanish, but don't be afraid. This food is so fresh and exciting, you've never had Mexican like this before. Be adventurous, all the tacos are delicious and the salsa bar is better than any you've...More

After reading other reviews, we decided to eat here during our Durham weekend trip. We weren't disappointed with our decision. We ordered mole, carne asada tacos, a cheese quesadilla, chicken tacos, (a burrito to go) and horchata. I haven't had shredded chicken tacos in a...More

We ordered 3 tacos (barbacoa, pastor, and asada). The BBQ was my least favorite but the others were good. The salsa bar is pretty incredible. Not only does it have salsas but also slaw and pickled veggies- even cactus. We also had a papusa with...More

Los Comales is located on Roxboro Rd, a strip replete with working-class Mexican joints, catering to a mostly-Mexican crowd. A bit of basic Spanish will help you to choose, though it is not necessary. I go there for lunch a couple times per week, and...More
