El Compadre Echo Park review image

El Compadre

Perfect For:Big Groups

If the Hollywood El Compadre is where you go for a night you probably won’t remember, the Echo Park location of this classic Mexican restaurant is where you go to prep for a ballgame. While it doesn’t have the same magic as the original, this is a solid spot for a ballpark pre-game involving flaming margaritas and plates of fajitas that will give you a meat-steam facial when they get to your table, and flaming margaritas.
