“Best Fish Tacos”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 28, 2013

We were hungry after a day on the beach and wanted something quick. Had carry out fro Los Compas. It was fabulous. The chips and salsa were heated. The fish tacos were grilled with a tasty cream sauce and slaw in the shell. We will be sure to visit them on the next trip to Galveston

“They do a decent job”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 13, 2013

Returned after being away for a while. Didn't seem to have changed much despite H. Ike. Food was good and filling. Waitress was pleasant. Atmosphere was a little down-at-the-heels. It was a good lunch.
But, if this is the best Mexican food on the island, there's no particularly great Mexican food on the island. Having tried them all, I'd say, yep, that's about right.

“Best Mexican Food on the Island”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 26, 2012

Just moved to the Island two months ago and have tried every mexican restaurant here. By far, Los Compas is the best! Nothing fancy about this place located on 45th Street in an older small house but definitely worth the visit! Staff is extremely attentive and friendly and the owners are hands on and so nice. Made us feel right at home.

“Excellent Food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 6, 2012 via mobile

This is some of the best mexican food we have eaten. The place is a little small but the favors are huge and so are the portions. Hot sauce was excellent has a spicy after bite. They also now serve dinner. Will definitly be back!!!
