Small whole in the wall restaurant on C street in Hayward with good food and great prices. Same family has run the place for many years. Servings are average size.

If you have a craving for a no-frills meal where your salad has thousand island dressing like mom used to make, and the chile releno is cooked perfectly with retried beans and Mexican rice then Los Copadres is the place for you. Add to that chips that are slightly salted and a thin, but spicy salsa plus real jarritos(Mexican soda)... More

We started going to Los Comprades 40 + years ago. It used to be a family favorite as our children were growing up. The food was good and it was inexpensive to take a family of five. We haven't been there for quite some time, but if they've kept things the same, it's great quality for pretty good food.

Their salsa with the chips is wonderful. All their main dishes are great, the meat could use a little less salt. But over all you would be hard pressed to find as flavorful a spread as they offer here. They have a waitress that is awesome. Can't remember her name just now, but she never misses a thing, and it's... More

Small portions, food was luke warm and generic. Service was spotty and it wasn't even busy. Hadn't been there for years and now I remember why.

Los Compadres has the best mexican food. Our family has been eating there for years. My daughter calls me every week to eat there. They make the best beans, rice, chips & salsa. Our favorites are Chicken Enchiladas, Pork El Pastor, and Shredded Beef Tacos. We have eaten at many mexican restaurants out of the area, not by choice. Always... More

Amazing. The family atmosphere and friendly staff makes the restaurant somewhere you keep returning to. In the talkative mood? Ask for Ignacio! The food is divine! Shrimp Camarones and Diegos Bean Dip are my favorites!!!
