Another one gone - sadly no great loss
The Honolulu Compadres has closed. The Honolulu branch was the original of this Hawaii based mini-chain, and the last to be closed. Today was it's last day in operation. My friends and I used to refer to the food as "microwave mex", and while it wasn't very good... it was rarely awful, so long as you didn't expect it to be really mexican. Sort of an upscale taco bell. Still it's sad to see another restaurant felled not by its own mediocrity, but by the business climate.
