Los Compadres has been my favorite Mexican restaurant for several years. However I'm looking for a new place now. This is ONLY because of the problems with their Margaritas. Their frozen Margaritas were awesome. The flavor was good, they were perfectly frozen and served in a typical Margarita thick goblet. The last few visits have been disappointing. Twice the drinks...

There happy hour during the week is like sometime have to be put on a waiting list. Havent eating there in a while but will go for happy hour drinks and chips and cheese. The drinks are strong and good price on beer. If you eat during happy it usually half price sometimes and depends what you order.

It is located in a convenient place. It provides authentic Mexican food which is reasonable. It also provides great service and is priced reasonable. A large variety of tasty food. It also provided Cuban food, though we did not try. The ambiance is good and lot of space for groups as well.

My husband I love Cuban food, so Los Compadres Cuban dishes was a pleasant surprise. The atmosphere was festive and the food delicious. They were able to seat a large group of us; however, the service was not great. The food came out very slowly and the servers didn't honor my requests even after asking them several times (in Spanish).... More

What is great about this place: frozen margaritas!! I hate frozen margaritas, but something about theirs knocks me out! It is good and strong. The food is pretty decent too. Especially the Cuban menu which is hard to get in Memphis. I love the steak asada and the portions are huge! The bad? The service is terrible. I've been here... More

The worst water. Do NOt drink it. Tastes like totten popes. Terrible especially when you know Memphis water is excellent. The amanager doesn't even care and won't come to your table when you ask for him. The avocado dip is the most tasteless avocado dip in the world. They have mixed some kind of cream in it and it doesn't... More

I was in Memphis on business last month and discovered Los Compadres by accident. I went in hoping for a good Mexican restaurant but was delighted to discover they serve Cuban food as well. I took my server's recommendation and tried the Cuban roast pork. It was delicious! Service was fast and the waiter was extremely friendly. Would recommend you... More

We eat here about twice a month. The food is very good, friendly service, and great margaritas. We enjoy sitting on the patio - it can be noisy inside. It's a great place to meet up with friends or to have a relaxing evening with someone special.

It looks like your typical Mexican restaurant, but the food is wonderful. Enchiladas and taquitos are good. The tamale was doughy but flavorful. Ask for the Cuban menu if you'd like to try something different, you can mix and match from both. Service was friendly and prompt.
