Reviews for Comal Next Door

Quick pick up order through Caviar app. I enjoyed my carnitas burrito without beans. Although, it was smaller than the other order of al pastor burrito with beans. The carnitas was nicely seasoned. I was hoping there would be salsa cups in the to go bag, but it was solid and good nonetheless.

We had high hopes for this place. It boasted an expensive menu but a more down-to-earth vibe than Comal, next door. Weirdly, they did not have carne asada, so my girlfriend ordered 3 tacos al pastor. I ordered al pastor, barbacoa, and carnitas tacos. The tortillas were dry and tasteless. Perhaps they were slightly warmed up from the cold ones they got at the store?

This is for the Berkeley Next Door. I'll definitely try the Lake Merrit location some time. It doesn't look like much from the outside but the inside decor is nice. As with everywhere, very much lacking in staff. One server trying to take orders and deliver the food so no cleanup was happening on the outdoor tables. Food was good. The Barbacoa taco was great but the al pastor was just so-so. My friend ordered a side of refried beans and rice and it came as black beans. A full review
