PHOTOS: A Look Inside El Compita’s New Davenport Location
To say the least, I'm super excited to be writing this article. My favorite Mexican restaurant in the Quad Cities has doubled in size by adding a second location in Davenport. El Compita Mexican Restaurant has two locations that serve up delicious authentic Mexican food paired pairs with great service and a friendly atmosphere.
My wife and I discovered El Compita's first location on the west end of Davenport (14010 112th Ave) last year. When we went there, the first things our mouths were.
"Yep, this is our new favorite Mexican restaurant."
While we still patron other wonderful Mexican restaurants in the Quad Cities and surrounding area, El Compita gave us a terrific experience right from the get-go that made us want to come back for more. It doesn't hurt that their authentic Mexican food is to die for.
El Compita opened its doors to its first location back on September 27, 2020. Since then, their popularity has grown so much it has allowed them to expand to a second location.
Back in August, we broke the news that El Compita would be opening its second location in the Quad Cities at 1720 E Kimberly Rd in Davenport. That used to be the home of a sports bar (or several), a chicken place, a pizza place, and most recently Uptown Bar & Grill.
On Monday. January 30th, 2023, El Compita opened its doors at its new location on Kimberly Road. As huge fans of El Compita, my family had to go to opening night to give it a try.
If you were nervous that the delicious food or great service would differ somehow, don't be. The food is as delicious as the original location, the service is top-notch, and we had a great time talking and laughing with the wonderful staff, just like we do on the west end.
El Compita on the west end and on Kimberly Road have the same hours. They are open 7 days a week (Sunday-Thursday, 11 a.m.-9 p.m., and Friday-Saturday, 11 a.m. to 10 p.m.) If you have tried El Compita yet, it's definitely time,
