I had a bbq this past weekend and got some stuff from Los Compadres. You’ve gotta love winter weather in Vegas. 60 degrees in January = perfect time for a bbq. My friend was actually the one who picked up the meat so I can’t comment about the store, location, or service. But, since I cooked everything I can give my two cents about the food. We got some carne asada, pounded thin (less than a quarter inch thick) and already marinated. We also got some chicken (I have no idea what the chicken equivalent of carne asada is called), also tenderized so it was very thin and pre-marinated. This was the first time I bbq’d with anything pre-seasoned or pre-marinated and it saved me time. All I had to do was throw it on the grill for a few minutes per side and it was ready to be diced up. The quality of the meat and poultry looked pretty good and the flavor was amazing. Definitely some of the top carne asada I’ve had in a while and it was a hit with everyone else. We have a ton of leftovers also, so I’ve been eating tacos for every meal the past few days. The price of the beef was roughly $5 a pound and the chicken was about $3 a pound, I believe. So, the moral of the story? If you’re having a bbq hit up Los Compadres for some amazing meat. They’ve got 3 or 4 locations around town.
