Mild-mannered Mexican food

Original post made on Jun 10, 2008

My litmus test for any Southwest, Tex-Mex or Mexican restaurant is its margarita. Compadres passed with flying colors.

My husband and I dine at Compadres from time to time. Recently we lunched there with my sister and her husband who were visiting from out of town. I was embarrassed to find that Compadres does not have an accessible toilet for my sister who is in a wheelchair. The only toilets are up a flight of stairs. (Everyone I've mentioned this to thought as I did, that this was illegal in California. We were all surprised.)

The manager on duty was apologetic, but that really didn't help. I was going to write to Compadres and ask them about this, but since I just ran into this article, I thought I'd also comment here. The Weekly restaurant reviews have a rating for "bathroom cleanliness"; maybe they could add one for accessibility.

I don't want to go to a restaurant that does not welcome my sister.
