Food is average, The beef in the Taco and Enchilada is unseasoned ground beef. I ordered #19, the waiter said they didn't have tamales, so I said he could provide a taco, I got the dish and it had a tamale and a taco...The dish did not have much flavor, the refried beans were like soup and the rice was...

Always a great place to stop. Busy busy busy be willing to wait it's worth your time and value of food. I've had the chicken enchilada burrito the last time and there was enough food on my plate for three people!! I took it home and I had it for breakfast.! The service is impeccable! Always try to stop every... More

Best food on our trip, not expensive and the service was outstanding. So much food on the plate, we couldnt finish it all. Ha a refill of our tea before we had to ask. Food was delicious. My enchiladas were so cheesy I had to wrap it around my fork. Excellent restaurant.

This is the spot for Mexican food in Gillette. We stopped in for lunch and got one of the last tables. For lunch we had tacos and a burrito. The salsa and chips were fresh and the service was really good. I will plan to eat here again.

Very crowed but worth the wait. The food was very good, could have been a little more spicy. The service was excellent.

Have been searching for a good chili rellano for about 30 years since I had one that was light like a French souffle in Patzcuaro. The one here was not a souffle, but was the closest I've been able to find. It was superb! The rest of the food was delicious, hot and abundant. The salsa was mild and yummy,... More

This place never fails to please. Tonight I chose shrimp fajitas and they were the best I've ever had. I couldn't eat them fast enough! The service is fast and polite, and he place is full but the turnover is quick. I love this restaurant! Eat here !!

Don't be fooled by exterior appearance of Los Compadres. What looks like a little hole in the wall restaurant actually serves pretty good Mexican food! When we first moved to Wyoming, i was skeptical about finding a good Mexican food restaurant but Los Compadres has been a nice surprise. The staff is always friendly, the service is quick and the...

Next time you're at the (very nice) Hampton Inn in Gillette, there's no need to consult the guest book, ask the locals, or guess about lunch or supper. Just walk across the street to Los Compadres. Even before we sat down, the waiter was there wanting to know whether he could bring us a drink. Of course he could! The... More

This is a popular restaurant due to the great food, reasonable prices and good service. It is very busy for a good reason!
