Eat Up Some Homemade Tortillas at Comfort Cafe

By  | 

Comfort Café in Comfort, TX is about two blocks away from Interstate 10 and easy to miss. Tucked behind a gas station between Exxon and Dairy Queen, this restaurant is worth turning around when you miss the road (hopefully, not more than once!) A narrow front room, with a counter to the left and tables to the right, leads to a larger room with tables and booth seating. Comfort Café is not a large venue, so you may want to call ahead if you have more than five people in your party. The walls are decorated with paintings, as well as accolades of support from the town of Comfort. Menu items are mostly Tex-Mex in nature but steaks and hamburgers can also be had. Although the menu notes full menus served all day, lunch items were not yet available around 10:30 a.m on Sunday. Breakfast is worth the trip, though!

Standard eggs, sausage, and shredded potatoes were tasty. Several menu items with this combo are available and portions were quite sturdy. Breakfast taco options are quite varied and are served on gigantic, homemade tortillas. Carne guisada was half gravy and very tender; also on the peppery side. The bean and cheese taco was the crown winner of the pair; the refried beans were smooth and perfectly seasoned. Salsa was freshly made and readily available.

Found at 104 Blueridge in Comfort, TX; if you pass the Dollar General, you missed it! Servers are friendly and the atmosphere is very homey. It’s a family-run business by locals from the community.

Cards are normally accepted but the machine was down during this visit so bring cash just in case!
