Los Dos Compadres offers authentic Mexican food

November 6, 2010 — by Rebecca Nguyen

While most people think of Chipotle when thinking about Mexican food, Los Dos Compadres #2 is a great alternative.

Only four minutes away from school, Los Dos Compadres #2 is located at 1652 South De Anza Boulevard and is open every day from 8 a.m. until 9 p.m., except on Sundays when it closes at 8:30 p.m.

With a wide variety of Mexican cuisine, such as enchiladas, burritos and quesadillas, Los Dos Compadres succeeds in delivering delicious food for an affordable price, such as $5.45 for a reasonably large quesadilla.

“The food tastes really authentic and good,” said senior Shahar Perlmutter. “The prices relative to the proportions are pretty cheap too. It’s definitely worth it.”

Both Chipotle and Los Dos offer a different feel for Mexican cuisine.

“They’re both different. Los Dos serves very authentic Mexican food, while Chipotle is commercialized,” said Perlmutter. “They’re both good though.”

With its great food and convenience, Los Dos Compadres is a delicious off-campus lunch spot.

“People should definitely go there. It’s close to school, so you have a lot of time to eat and it makes lunch less rushed,” said Perlmutter. “Also, the food is prepared pretty fast.”
