We hosted a rehearsal dinner for about 40 guests. The staff was very attentive and professional. The food was delicious and plenty. A fun time hard by all.

I didn't realize that guacamole could be so tasteless...nor Sangria. I wish I could have a do over and we'd have eaten somewhere else that night. Would not recommend.

They handed out coupons for $1 margaritas at the 4th of July parade so naturally we had to go check this place out while in town. This place totally surprised us. There was a beautiful outdoor patio next to the river, friendly service and the food was rich and delicious. And the margaritas were worth having more than one :)

We were staying across he street at Rverpointe Resort and around 9pm I decided I wanted a snack so I walked over, sat at the bar and had the chingalangas and a margarita. The margarita was very good, not too sweet. The chingalingas were decent, kind of a baked mini chimichanga. The bartender was friendly and fast and there were... More

Thank you for your nice review of our breakfast, which really is my favorite day-part. We really do have some very authentic and original creative dishes...try the Chilaquiles or the Bistec Hash when you visit the area the next time. More

I felt Compadres was a little pricy for the quality of the food. The pitcher of margaritas ($28-$38) on the other hand was a good value when you compare the price of the drinks to the pitcher. Most disappointing was the guacamole ($10)...couple of mashed avocados, little spice/taste. The entrees were large portions, again somewhat higher than in other areas... More

The food, the service, and the ambiance of dining next to the river was very good. The Chile Relleno was delicious and so was the Chicken Mole. The portion of Chicken Mole was enough for two.
