I love this place. It is my reward restaurant. I normally get the # 11,12 or 22. The guacamole is amazing. We always get an extra guacamole to go. The servers were willing to explain what was in the items i was interested in. My water glass never gets empty which is a sign of an attentive server. It is... More

We enjoy all types of Mexican fare and have not been disappointed during several visits to El Compadre in Long Beach. The presentation of the meals has been appealing, and both the quality and service have been consistent. This is an enjoyable spot for very casual dining if everyone in the party wants this genre.

Like a lot of restaurants in the area, it is much nicer on the inside than the outside. Looks like a sketchy dive on the outside, but inside it is a bright, clean, family-friendly space. Make sure to get some of their fresh and excellent guacamole with your meal. Portions, quality, service, and value were all very good. We had... More

My wife and I dined here in April. We each had two tacos and a side of refried beans between us. The tacos were tasteless and looked like they had been made by someone who didn't care about what was being served. The beef in the taco was just a little bit of ground beef. They were eaten with a... More

I had been craving some yummy nachos, so we decided to stop here. I ordered the "Super Nacho".... nothing super about it. Just way too much cheese with a tiny bit of refried beans and few small pieces of tomato on it. They only had one waiter working and he was obviously not having a good day. We most likely... More

This was place was great, Arroz con Polo was good, the tortillas were fresh and warm. Fajita burrito was good also, very big and not just all rice and beans...everything had really good flavor. Could have used some drink refills, but food was great.

We've never stopped here but this trip we did. This is a pretty good place for Mexican food. The place is right off the highway and was always busy which is usually a good sign. We had lunch - I had the chicken taco el carbon (think that was what it was called) and my wife had the chicken chimichangas... More
