looked at some of the comments from some of the other travelers who have eaten here and decided to try it out. From the outside this place is not impressive, however it is what is inside that counts. I walked in and was immediately greeted by the owners and I was taken to a booth. The restaurant was clean and... More

Wendover isn't know for its great food in my opinion. My girlfriend and I decided to try the small local restaurant off the beaten path. I had eaten here a couple of years ago but now it has new owners and a new name. It is no longer called The Onion and Garlic Mexican Restaurant. Now it is called "La... More

We had some friends come to town. We decided to go here (now under new management called "Los Compadres"). We decided to just have banana splits and visit. Wonderful choice! We really enjoy the food, but the visit was great with just dessert. You really should give it a try.

It looks like this place has changed name again. It's now, "Los Compadres Mexican Restaurant." We read the reviews and decided to give it a try. Looking at the outside, we probably would have passed by. It's a portable trailer; similar to what you would see as a school temporary building. However, the inside looks pretty good. Service was very... More

As mentioned before, don't let the outside area keep you away. It's clean and neat inside. It recently went under new management, and I hope they make it. Food was very good and I think reasonably priced. Service was great! I hesitated on going there (we live in W Wendover), but some friends talked us into going out. I'm glad... More

This restaurant is a trailer located on the way to the airport. We decided to live on the edge and give it a try. Let me say, it is a typical run down trailer, but I was quite surprised to have delicious authentic tacos. The tacos are $1 or $1.50 with great portion of meat. I would recommended this place...

Well I am Hispanic and can be critical. I like the old fashioned home made Mexican food. Had the fajitas carne asada , not the best more veggies than meat, salsa was fine, service was very good.

the selections in wendover are few. fast food, casino buffet and all very average at best and the cost is high. this little place is special. small older building. simple interior. looks to be a family. young girl and boy working the tables. food is good. we had two combo meals for $15. don't let the outside and area bother...
