We visit Los Compadres at least twice a month and are always happy. The food is great, the service attentive and the margaritas are delicious. The lunch specials are an especially good value.

Service, food choices, pricing and friendliness is 5 Star. Menu is large enough to satisfy anyone's palette for Mexican Choices. Bring a Smile because you will get one in return!

The atmosphere isn't great, but the food is outstanding and the service is incredible. The 4 of us were able to eat lunch for $40. The staff is very friendly and they are always fast serving the food.

LC came highly recommend from a local and it did not disappoint. Our waiter was attentive but not pushy, the food was hot and delicious and the margaritas were on point. Mom and I ordered the carne asada enchiladas and chili rellenos. They were the best we've had. The rellenos were loaded with cheese and the enchiladas were stuffed with... More

We are regulars. Los compadres leaves the rest behind. Rafael is a super owner. Fantastic staff. Food is always great. Margaritas, chips and salsa the best. Clean. Good value. Simply the best. Highly recommended.

I've reviewed this restaurant in the past; it was excellent then and is still excellent now. The margaritas are hand mixed, not from a pre-made spigot. The food and service are continuously excellent. Chips are warm, salsa is perfect. Thank you Los Compadres for the wonderful meals we have had in the past, we will be back.

Well, we had dinner at another restaurant but we just wanted a drink after dinner. We were about 15 people and we arrived about the time they were closing. To their credit they wished us welcome and accommodates us. While they cleaned the place around us we had a few pitchers of margaritas. The drinks were good and we thank... More

They have the best top shelf margaritas. Their chips and salsa are good too. The food is really good too. But of course the margaritas and chips and salsa are the most important part :)

The waiter, who appeared to be the manager, was rude when he took our order. Then we waited for 40 minutes before I went to look for him. When I found him, he realized that he had failed to turn in the order for our table. He then acted out his anger when he realized his error. He ruined our... More

Most Mexican restaurants serve so-so combinations of the same ingredients. Juby and Horacio Jara of Los Compadres have found the magic touch of fresh, hot, food and high energy service with perpetual smiles and brazos from regular patrons that make the Mexican dining experience a treat. My test when visiting a new place are 1) the Tamales and 2) the... More
