Very busy on Cinco De Mayo but was worth it. The service was good and my husband and I had the fish (Snapper) fajitas. The fish was done perfect. It reminded me of when we were in Mexico and a restaurant was set up on the beach with fresh fish caught that day. And the guacamole was excellent. I couldn't... More

There are at least 2 kinds of carnitas offered in American Mexican restaurants. We prefer the chunks of marinated pork that are either baked or deep-fried until they have a nice, caramelized crust. The meat is tender, tasty and pleasing to the eye. The other kind of carnitas is like a pulled pork. Stringy, grey, moist meat piled thickly with... More

We have not visited Compadre's for quite some time. When I read some of the latest reviews I was a bit concerned, but we decided to go back. Glad we did. The food was as good as always. Our server was very pleasant and attentive. Meals were prepared in just a short time. Servings were very large. Prices are reasonable,... More

My wife and travel extensively and always try the local Mexican restaurants. This one is now on the bottom of our list. In fact, out of the 50 or so Mexican restaurants we have tried, it is the only one we would no try again. The good news is the salsa and chips were very good, and the décor is... More

The place was quiet for a Saturday afternoon. The inside was dark and kind of dated, but the food made up for it. The salsa (served with chips) was excellent. Very fresh and flavorful. The pork burrito - a special item - was stuffed with tender pork. Very filling! Yummy sangria.

Came for dinner with a group of friends, the inside is festively decorated, our server was efficient and knowledgable, and all our meals were delivered to our table perfectly. Definitely worth a visit if you like good Mexican food.

Waitress was less than friendly, food was just OK, nothing at all to brag about. I had not been here for years, and was surprised how the prices had gone up and the portions gone down. But if it had been great, I would not have minded so much. My friend left more than half of her Taco Salad. I... More

just ok. Waitress was really slow and friendly until she turned away from you. We had the green tomatillo enchiladas, a burrito, beef enchiladas. Salsa is very mild and seemed fresh but had a bit of an odd flavor. We are surprised at all the good reviews. It looks nice outside but is just ok.

Had a wonderful lunch there on Sunday afternoon after browsing the Spring Fine Arts show on Dearborn Street. The service was great and the food very good. The chips are ultra thin, have great flavor and are plentiful along with salsa. Had chicken fajitas that were excellent. This place is on my list of places to take guests when they... More
