We like to find small Mexican restaurants that offer good food at a good price. Los Compas hits the mark. It is a hole in the wall place that you cannot pass up.

The food at Los Compas is fresh and made to order. The wait staff is attentive and remembers your name after only a couple of visits.

This places best asset is not the food,it's the family that runs it!!! The owner makes a point of introducing himself after you sit down,and will engage MOST guests in friendly conversation too. THAT being said...the food IS awesome as well!!!

Definitely get your money's worth and food is good. Service is good and feels like a home instead of a large restaurant. Portions are large, owner is friendly and it's centrally located on the island.

I visited this place since some people gave it good reviews. Big mistake!! The waitress had horrible costumer service and the food was mediocre at best. The menudo left a disgusting film in my mouth Definitely wouldn't eat here again.

Thank cboru
