Blink and you’ll miss this place. But follow the wafting smells of deep-fried tortillas, and your nose will lead you to Los Compadres. This family-owned Mexican joint deep fries its tortillas to order, so the standard Sonoran fare is always hot and fresh. And everything from the beans and rice to the mouthwatering green chile beef is top notch. Lunch platters include surprisingly filling mini versions of tacos, burritos, chimichangas, enchiladas, or tostadas. If you’re in central Phoenix near Camelback Road, do yourself a favor and stop by for lunch, dinner, or at least the irresistible sopapillas. Smothered in honey and powdered sugar, they’re a great end to any meal.
