“Pricey Mexican”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 7, 2014 via mobile

Coming from an area where Mexican restaurants offer a wide variety of combos and dinner options for $6.99 and up, we are a bit disappointed that you really have no options here below $8.50. Maybe not that big a deal, but when dining with a family it adds up. We were only provided one basket of chips - a real disappointment too. The taco salad was good but nothing out of the norm, as were the two combo meals sampled. Two thumbs up for the old school location in the heart of Englewood - a great change of scenery from chain restaurants. All in all a good place to dine, just a little on the pricey side for families.

“Busy Place, Good Food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 28, 2014

Compadre's is right in the heart of downtown Englewood. We visited there on one of the Cruise Nights and the area was packed with people. The wait to get in was only about 25 minutes. The food was good and the service was remarkable fast. Would recommend.

“great salsa”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 15, 2014

Authentic dinners....the homemade salsa and warm chips are de-lish...and you can order some to take home. Fajitas are wonderful, order some guacamoli on the side, yum. Go and enjoy.

“Yep, it's good...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 15, 2014

The other reviews stating quick, hot and good food are correct...And there's plenty of it...Chips and salsa could make a great meal by themselves...Small inside but adequate...Also outside seating. Compadre's is located in what is known as Old Englewood so it is somewhat away from a lot of traffic...Highly recommended...

“An Englewood Favorite”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 7, 2014

The Mexican food here is always served hot (as in very warm!), our favorite among places featuring similar food. The chips served as an appetizer are warm and fresh, and the sauce has just the right zing. We are never disappointed.
