The grilled cod filet dinner was excellent. The fish was served hot, fresh and properly seasoned. It came with rice, beans, tortillas, chips and choice of several different salsa. There were actually two large filets, making it possible to share part of it with my companion, who had an excellent Tostada Ceviche. If you feel like going vegetarian, the Vegetarian... More

I eat here relatively often. The food is consistently good and the staff is always great. I have eaten many things on the menu and the food quality is very consistent. It is the best taqueria in town, in my opinion.

Memorial Day, 2013 was the second time we've been to this restaurant. You order your food at the cash register and then they give you a basket of chips to try at their "salsa bar." There are about six different salsas to try, but they don't tell you what each one is, so it's not too easy to find your... More

Everything you want in a taqueria. The carnitas grande nachos easily feed two. The grande burritos are insanly huge as well. This place has been one of our guily pleasures for the last ten years.

This place is amazing, fresh salsa bar, delicious chips and amazing entrees! My husband and I often split dishes because the portions are large. They have an amazing grilled chicken breast quesadilla with grilled onions and tomatoes and it its huge. We love the food, the staff and the location (right next to Yogurt Mill - great place for dessert)... More

Francisco, the owner, made me Huevos Rancheros 18 years ago at his restaurant in Riverbank, his sauce is wonderful. My next favorites are the Chili Rellanos and the Carnitas Quesedillas. 4 generations of my family are regular customers.

I love their fajitas...they put squash in them. Absolutely fabulous. And plenty to share with someone. They also do a wonderful chicken salad. Mix the ranch dressing with pico de gallo and it makes a good salad better.

This is our go to place for family birthday get togethers. Casual ordering at the counter and delivered to your table, or take out. Relaxed environment and great food. Good selection of Mexican beers and soft drinks. Great salsa bar which includes the best avocado tomatillo salsa ever. Our family loves this place and it's always a hit.

I had the house special & all I can say is I wish it wasn't gosh to lick the plate. The enchiladas were perfect!!! Of course the chips and salsa before the main course were delicious as well. You have to check this place out!!! The service is amazing too - we sat down from getting soda & our entree... More

We go to Taqueria Los Compadres all the time - at least once a month anyway. Have for years. And the funny thing is, again and again we see different "repeat customers" from our circle of friends. (It seems to be a favorite with many people!) Last week when we went for lunch we found ourselves in line behind some... More
