El Compadre is not just your run of the mill taqueria. It opened late last year with Isaias Berriozabal-Martinez at the helm, the son of Philly Barbacoa’s owner and chef Cristina Martínez.
Isaias passed away unexpectedly in January, but his restaurant remains, and it is serving up some great food.
The homemade tortillas are awesome, and my cucumber agua fresca was refreshing after a day on the baseball field.
Al pastor nachos – 3.35/5 pickled jalapeños – eat these with family and come back for the tortas for lunch.
