I've been eating at Los Compadres since the early 90's, before customer service became extinct. The last time I tried to eat here I called in an order to be picked up, and the young girl on the phone kept interrupting me and hung up before I was even done ordering. I didn't even bother going to pick up my... More

No extra spent on an interior decorator. Giant servings. Chile Colorado is soul satisfying. Chile verde will open clogged sinus passages. Clean and friendly

We liked its down home simple looks and gave it shot. Really great Mexican food at a very reasonable price, run by very nice folks. The flan is a total standout!

After driving for many hours with no signs of real food stopping at the first place was ideal. When we pulled up the sign said "Mexican Cooking" this made me wonder what that meant? I was Leary but I went with it. Food is cooked to order so it took longer than desired. When it finally came it was amazing!... More

All of the employees were very personable and humorous. Everything was made to order and delicious. Watch out when ordering the burritos - the large size is the largest I have ever seen.

The food here is very good.. Here is the deal however... This is a restaurant that is sort of a Dine In / Take Out format. You go to a counter to order your food. Then find a table in the dining room. They call your order number when meal is ready. You go up and get it. If you... More

I had the chicken super burrito which was so super that I couldn't finish it. Hubby had the mole which was delicious. Chicken was on the bone so be aware. The tortillas served with the mole and the tortilla for burrito were freshly hand made. They had just made about a dozen blueberry empanadas - made with fruit, not filling... More
