This is the best Mexican restaurant we have found even compared to places in Portland. They have a cheery decor and delicious sauces, not to mention generous portions. We love going here!

Thank you for the best Authentic Mexican Food! The waitress was very busy with a great attitude. Music, atmosphere felt like I was in Mexico! If we come back to Long Beach we will definitely come here again!

We stopped here for dinner. The food was a bit pricey and very bland. No spice to it at all! I ordered the tacos.. and the shells looked like the kind you buy already cooked in a box.. like tortilla chips. Very disappointed in the food.

While on vacation and craving Mexican food, we looked up restaurants and came up with this place. We decided to try it and we were glad we did. The service and food were excellent, for a Thursday afternoon in sometimes lonely Longbeach, Washington,we were happy to see it was kind of crowded and still received excellent service. We come back... More

I love this place. It is my reward restaurant. I normally get the # 11,12 or 22. The guacamole is amazing. We always get an extra guacamole to go. The servers were willing to explain what was in the items i was interested in. My water glass never gets empty which is a sign of an attentive server. It is... More

We enjoy all types of Mexican fare and have not been disappointed during several visits to El Compadre in Long Beach. The presentation of the meals has been appealing, and both the quality and service have been consistent. This is an enjoyable spot for very casual dining if everyone in the party wants this genre.

Like a lot of restaurants in the area, it is much nicer on the inside than the outside. Looks like a sketchy dive on the outside, but inside it is a bright, clean, family-friendly space. Make sure to get some of their fresh and excellent guacamole with your meal. Portions, quality, service, and value were all very good. We had... More

My wife and I dined here in April. We each had two tacos and a side of refried beans between us. The tacos were tasteless and looked like they had been made by someone who didn't care about what was being served. The beef in the taco was just a little bit of ground beef. They were eaten with a... More
