We were traveling I-75 trying to find another Mexican restaurant I found on trip advisor, but got off at the wrong exit and saw this instead so decided to give it a try. I'm glad we did! We were seated quickly and the hostess was all smiles...always a good thing. The waiter was funny, he kept making jokes and playing... More

What a great find!! A large group of us stopped in for lunch and the service was stellar. The chips and salsa could be a meal. Many lunch options for around $5-6 and the portions are huge. By far, the best refried beans I have ever had!

I reviewed Los Compadres a few weeks ago and praised the place under new management. Well, it's back down hill. Since my last visit the portions have withered, the service acts as if they are doing you a favor to wait the table which they don't check on after the order. And the prices are up, too. $3.50 for a... More

This was, I think, Tifton's first Mexican Restaurant. Started off really good and slowly went down hill -- don't know why but several other TexMex places opened up and Los Compadres suffered in traffic and quality. Well, now there's new management and I've had really good meals twice in the last week or two. The portions are huge, the seasonings... More

Nice folks. Cheap A couple can eat here for under $20 lunch or dinner. Good Mexican food. I don't drink Margaritas but everyone I know loves theirs. Love the taco salad.

Service is slow but food is good. Lots of seating room. Great decor. But have been 3 tines and food takes way too long to come out

I stopped in on a Thursday evening with two teen aged boys who were hungry. The food was great, and when you ask for beef in your items its SHREDDED BEEF not the lame hamburger most places give you. Food was good. One boy had a grilled chicken salad..Id make the salad more than just shredded lettuce myself..but he liked... More

While visiting Tifton again, it's good to re-visit this restaurant. The food here is sooooooo tasty and the service is great. The waiter was very friendly and my drinks were refilled even before I reached the bottom of the glass. Their margaritas are superb and I could drink glass after glass (my goal is to sample each of their flavors)... More

Speed of service is integral to a positive dining experience no matter the restaurant service type. A guest will likely form expectations as to how long they should wait for the food, depending on the restaurant. The guest will be annoyed if his two-dollar cheeseburger took ten minutes to serve, but in a fine dining restaurant, that guest will probably... More

Great food at a great price. The two waiters are AMAZING and I request them every time! I have eaten many Mexican restaurants all over and this is by far my favorite! Very clean place and good, strong drinks. Quality food. One of my favorite places in Tifton.
