El Compadre - Hollywood

The content on this page is provided by a Time Out partner.

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.

If you love Mexican food, then El Compadre should be on your list!  Great margaritas and guacamole can be found here along with staples like amazing enchiladas and mole!


El Compadre has been a staple in Los Angeles for many years now and is still one of the best Mexican restaurants in LA. I highly recommend the flaming margaritas and the quesadillas which come with a side of their delicious guacamole. If you go during weeknights they usually also have a mariachi band!
