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

El Compadre is one of our favorites on Long Beach Peninsula, WA. We consider ourselves regulars. Favorites usually a margarita, chicken carnitas, or taco salad. Even hosted club meetings and family gatherings here for lunch or dinner. Good food and great service. Give them a try.

This place is hard to beat. We have eaten at several other Mexican Restaurants when we traveled on vacation and they don't match up to the taste and value of El Compadre. Truly a restaurant you don't want to pass up when in the Long Beach area.

This is the best Mexican restaurant we have found even compared to places in Portland. They have a cheery decor and delicious sauces, not to mention generous portions. We love going here!

Thank you for the best Authentic Mexican Food! The waitress was very busy with a great attitude. Music, atmosphere felt like I was in Mexico! If we come back to Long Beach we will definitely come here again!
