Since 1975, El Compadre Restaurant in Hollywood has been one of Southern California's hot spots for Mexican cuisine and drinks. The restaurant fashions the look and feel of an "old world hacienda". Lined with clay roof tires, wrought iron lanterns and stained glass chandeliers; its walls grace of Mexican heritage with paintings, artifacts, antiques and vase floral trimmings. We specialize in showcasing "The fine foods of Mexico". We serve family recipes handed down over generations using select cuts of meats, and choice seafood alongside season fresh vegetables. e have a dedicated full bar area where we serve mixed cocktails, imported and domestic beers and our legendary and famous "Flaming Margarita". Coupled with live nightly music from a trio singing Mexican classics and with a dimly lit, sultry lighting; our romantic ambiance is unmatched.
