Fried Tacos!!!

I would give them an Excellent rating if they seasoned their meat while cooking. It definitely has to have sauce added before eating. Their super burrito is huge and tasty but you cannot find better fried tacos anywhere! This is not a big place but you can have seating and they will bring you... read more

It's usually the none fancy restaurants that have the REAL Mexican food! Every time we come to Crescent city we have to stop at least once to get a couple tacos! The tacos are actually a good size, almost like 3 small tacos combined. The tortilla I believe is freshly made there (not sure) but it test home made. The... More

Excellent spot for some great food. Fresh. You can tell they take pride in the food. Building is nothing to look at. And it is pretty small. But step inside for good food.

We are visiting from Arizona for the month of June. We went to every Mexican restaurant in town and this was the best. Great food, big portions, fair price,and great service from this family run busines Also, took some of the homemade pies home and they were great, don't pass them up.

When I travel thru Del Norte County, it has become a tradition to stop for a Super Vegie Burrito. The service is always fast and friendly, the burritos are always enormous and delicious, the empanadas are good, and the price is always very reasonable. You can take food to go, or you can dine-in in a very basic dining room.... More

I thought the food was pretty good if not particularly special. Its a tiny place and very simple, but if you're in the mood for a decent Mexican dish, then this is a safe bet, plus its relatively inexpensive.

Really great salsa and homemade tortillas. My shredded beef crispy taco was yummo. The burrito was enormo but had a bit to much rice in it.

I love eating the fried taco at Los Compadres--so full of flavor. But the kicker is that ALL their FOOD is wonderful..the service is so kind and friendly.

Right on hwy 101 south, it's a convenient stop in. Either eat in or take out, it's great. We get Super Burritos and usually share one....they're huge. With a beer, you have just reached nirvana.
