Always festive and colorful, Mexican cuisine melds the old world with the new world. Mixing pre-Columbian Indian ancestry with the mix of Spanish European influences, Mexican cuisine is as diverse as its geographic abundance. Savory sauces, select cuts of meats and choice seafood with fresh vegetables and traditional refried beans and colored rice, El Compadre Restaurant brings together staple dishes from various regions of Mexico, using family recipes that are gourmet flavorful. We serve a diverse menu that employs various cooking techniques. From our succulent seafood plates like Camarones Cancun, Pescado Veracruzana and Enchiladas Acapulco, to our juicy grilled meat plates like Steak Tampiquena, and El Compadre filet mignon, our main dishes are sure to please. We also have House and Chef’s Specials like Gallina en Mole Estilo Puebla, Steak Picado Estilo Michoacan, Bistecitos de Res and Lengua en Salsa Espanola which use fine cuts of meats infused with complex zesty sauces and vegetables. Fresh salads, soups as well as a host of combination/regular plates along with small a la carte servings round out a good selection of choices ready for any group’s tastes. We also have vegetarian options and can make most dishes vegetarian with vegetable substitutions in that particular dish, still served with traditional refried beans and rice and trimmings! .
