Met family for lunch. I ordered the lunch chili verde and thought it was bland. My son ordered a burrito and it was huge. He ate it all! Free chips and salsa with order.

The food is well made, hot and fresh. Great portions at a very reasonable price. I would definitely recommend! A great place for larger groups as well.

To staisfyour inkling for Mexican food, this is the place. I had carne asada, the steak was great, and the portion was well over what I could eat. My husband had chili colorado, a little too spicy.

We have dined here several times, and the food is always tasty, though not spectacular, and the service is prompt and cheerful, even when they're slammed with tourist business.

Arrived in town and decided to try El Compadre Restaurant fro lunch. Good decision. The lunch menu was oh so very reasonable offering very good Mexican Food. The cheese enchilada was as good as it gets with a generous side of rice and beans and a fresh bean tostada. For under $8.00 this is a bargain in a beach tourist... More

I don't know if the Mexican food here is authentic or not, but it sure is good. Just love this place. Food is as good here as it is in Phoenix where we live. Always eat here when in town.

This brightly-colored and fun restaurant seated us quickly. It was a busy weekend, but they could still accommodate our party. The food was prepared quickly, was just as I would consider "typical mexican food" but of truly decent quality. We liked it so much, we bopped back by for more another day of our stay.

There are so many things to choose from on their menu. It was hard to choose. But the food is really good and the wait staff were friendly and attentive. We will go there again

Tonight my wife and I decided to go Mexican and when in Long Beach that means El Compadre. The food that we ordered was good and we left very satisfied. But like most every restaurant in Long Beach, it is under staffed. We had to wait longer to be served and get out cheque. My wife and I felt sorry... More
