They have a few coin operated games in the back of the restaurant that our kids enjoy playing while waiting for their food. We have never been... read more

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.

The one thing I liked about this place is their Super Burritos! Yum! They are super! I could only eat half of it. Many verieties too. The staff was very polite, and you can tell it's family owned. A little pricey, but I would love to come again!

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
