This place has the worst service and the rudest wait staff. Went there at 1 pm only one other table was seated otherwise the place was dead. Wait staff just standing around talking when they finally decided to take our order I requested additional chips; he said sure and never came back with chips. My flauta plate was drowned in... More

Good authentic Tex-Mex breakfast. Wife had the Huevos Rancheros and I had the 'Grande' breakfast burrito. Both were quite good. Homemade tortillas too! Two salsas are served at breakfast, one cold and one warm. The service is good, food comes quick and it was delicious. This one of those hole-in-the-wall places, where the locals go. We had actually visited here... More

If you like salsa with a kick this is the place. Beef fajita plate was a good portion for lunch. The tacos are good. The whole menu is at the top. Other than the enchiladas I didn't care for those. But te salsa I buy and take back to Texas with me every time I go.

Hidden on a side street but well worth looking for. The food is very good, flavorful and authentic. Order at the counter and find a table. The portions are generous and reasonably priced. The tostada compuesta plate with red chili, green chili and beans is great. Their chile rellenos are well done. Save room for dessert, they have the best... More

By referral from our hotel front desk, we visited Los Compos in blind trust. Boy, did that work out well! Though the parking is just adequate for the seating capacity, we got there just as a number of guests were leaving...so parking AND seating were no issue. The menu selection was much different than what we are accustomed to in... More

We had the Estrella tacos which were recommended. I felt they were very bland . More of a takeout place than a eat in I observed. You order at the counter and then take away or find a table in the back to eat. Serve yourself tea or coffee, silverware, etc. I had to take tacos back as they forgot... More
