A word from Comida - Longmont
We are a small, funky, not overly precious but delicious neighborhood joint filled with the flavors we have come to love over the years while visiting family and friends in Mexico. The food served at The Comida Cantina is filled with tons of flavor and richness. It is, however, authentic to the basic flavors and presentations of Mexican food only to a point. The rest has all been created out of a desire to try new things with these flavors as the base. Our roots are based in street food. Little bites, affordable, quick and delicious. Comida is food that makes people crave it.Continued

  • "the best part of restaurant was service. the staff was very attentive and friendly. the food had unique selections, tasty, affordable. lots of spicy. however it was very loud, and tight seating so it made it a challenge to enjoy each other's company"

  • "I first tried Comida at the Source in Denver. I've been intending to sample the wares of the restaurant but don't get to Longmont often Oh how it was worth the drive, which isn't all that far from Boulder. First of all, it's in a very cool neighborhood in Longmont, I felt like I'd been transported out of Boulder County. Amazing food, fantastic spin on American-Mexican fare. Don't want to spoil it so go explore for yourself the explosive flavors."

  • "Comida may have come from a food truck, but they are waaaaay beyond that now! I've eaten at both locations (Longment and The Source) a couple of times now and finally felt compelled to write a review because they do what they do so well. Presentation of the food is always quite nice, but more importantly the taste ! is just great. From the fish, to the beef to the combinations of flavors - the kitchen does a great job. Items are familiar enough to be accessible, and yet new and fresh enough to be interesting. Prices are reasonable, atmosphere is fun. It's a winner."

  • "Thank you to all the Comida staff for making this past Valentines Day special for my wife and I. we had the Stripped Bass for two and it was wonderful, we both enjoyed it. the Squash Soup with scallops was also great! I would recommend this place for a dinner for two or for four if you want a local nice place to meet and have dinner."

  • "Comida is great for variety. I love the sirloin situation and the bacon and jalapeno tacos. Only complaint is the drinks, you have to pay for refills"

  • "Checked OT for res. Comida had a res in 1 hr. Made res for 1.5 hrs, 7:30pm. Arrived on time. Told we hadn't made our res in enough advance time, 24 hrs was optimal. They were busy. it would be a 15-20 minutes, But we would be seated 1st, since we had that meaningless reservation. Except we weren't seated first. If they aren't going to honor reservations, why have them? We wouldn't have been seated any sooner than if we had just walked in. Told to enjoy drinks & apps. No place to enjoy apps,& weren't offered them. Once seated, we were poured water, we asked for an app. Told we had to ask our server. Food is great for the price point. But this was a serious fail in terms of service. Take it off Opentable, making a reservation is meaningless."

  • "So our car broke down on the way to Comida, taking about an hour to drive there. Monday is all day happy hour which was nice, we enjoy the food and the neighborhood Comida is in is cute. Not a huge fan of going out in Longmont but there are a few great places to eat and Comida is one of them"

  • "The food was excellent and the service was great but it is very loud when busy. Even with the volume we'll definitely be back as the food is amazing."

  • "This little neighborhood restaurant is a great place for a group of gals to grab a bit of food, a great cocktail or two and a lively conversation. I don't think my boyfriend, who has a rather large appetite, would love it, but if you are looking for a light bite, it's perfect!"

  • "Coming began as a food truck and, luckily, blossomed into a happening restaurant. It was chic, fun and delicious. A welcome surprise in the Longmont dining scene."

    Dined on 8/4/2013
  • "Everything is fresh and delicious (from the apps, flan, and specials such as rellenos and tortilla soup to the core item that made them famous when they started dispensing them from the beautiful pink truck: tacos). Highlights include flavorful Tender Belly bacon in the griddled bacon/jalapeño taco, amazing Sirloin Situation taco with sweet potato mash, and jalapeño grits nestled in the camerones a la diabla taco. Watermelon and pineapple margs both have a spicy kick. Great service, friendly people, nice space. Easy to find just off of Hwy 287 in outskirts of Longmont's newer Prospect neighborhood with ample free parking (and coming soon to Denver)."

  • "We thoroughly enjoyed our dinner at Comida. The margaritas were perfect. The food options were great. Ordering items to share increased our conversation at the table. Our waiter was spectacular. Recommend this to anyone interested in a fun, laid back Mexican dinner with a great neighborhood atmosphere."

  • "We go to Comida just about every Friday nite. Living in Longmont, with its array of chain restaurants, we are thrilled to have Comida just a 10 minute walk away. The staff knows us by name and they are truly a very special group! Not a fan of the margaritas, but realize that is a matter of opinion. Favorites of ours are the salads, guacamole, shrimp taco, tamales and verde sauce. We are thrilled we now can make reservations..."

  • "Food here is great, very modern take on Mexican. If you're looking for your usual burrito or chimichanga, this is not the place for you. My favorite is the shrimp taco that comes with jalapeño grits and has a nice kick. The steak one is also great, as is the bacon griddle taco. I've had the chips and salsa starter as well as the queso- both solid appetizers. I wish they served chips and salsa as a complementary starter... Their watermelon jalapeno margarita is what I go back for- there's nothing like it. I'm not a margarita person generally, but these are amazing. I can't wait to try the pineapple habanero one. Food here is always good- service can be spotty."
