Home of the flaming margaritas. Features Mexican food, potent drinks and nightly music.
El Compadre brings old school Mexico to Hollywood. Come enjoy the live music every night at 8pm at the "Home of the Flaming Margarita" and enjoy the wonderful food and friendly service. The family-owned restuarant features two locations filled with red vinyl booths and original Mexican decor, allowing you to feel the essence of Mexico right here on the Sunset strip. Get the tacos or enchilads verdes--it's all delicious. Come early and stay late. Enjoy this wonderful fiesta every day of the week at both locations.
