Though coveting thy neighbor's wife or underground sprinkler system is beyond the pale, longing for a mouthful of their cuisine is an understandable desire. Today's Groupon satisfies desires to eat from the table of our nation's neighbor: for $15, you get $30 worth of drinks and south-of-the-border fare at The Comet on Hamilton Avenue.
Among the city's best bars and nightclubs according to CityBeat's Best of Cincinnati poll, The Comet draws crowds with live music, a menu of classic Mexican favorites, and a massive selection of suds. Start a salutatory mouth soiree with a plate of nachos crowned by cheese, sour cream, black beans, and jalapeños ($7.50), or begin with a salsa sampler featuring a quartet of house-made salsas, one for each of your taste buds ($5). Like savory, soft piñatas, chicken, beef, or tofu burritos come stuffed with black and/or pinto beans, rice, cheese, and salsa ($6), and chile con queso gives tortilla chips a refreshing dairy bath in white-cheese dip ($4). A Sunday brunch starting at 11 a.m. helps give the weekend a flavorful hybrid-meal finish.
Six rotating tap handles and more than 150 bottled brews give The Comet's beer list the breadth of an encyclopedia and the steamy appeal of a sci-fi romance novel. An informal atmosphere keeps snobby aristocrats from interrupting conversations with name-dropping stories about their numerous resort travels, and frequent live musical performances spanning genres from big band to bluegrass provide a veritable feast for the ears.
- One of favorite area bars that happens to also have food. Mainly a great selection of burritos and salsa, but you come for the outstanding selection of bottle and tap beers. The jukebox is always amazing and there are frequently great bands and no cover. – michael white, Urbanspoon
- Great beer selection. Wait, let me correct myself --- GREAT beer selection!!!! – Jessica K., Yelp
