Chuck Wiki

First date at el Compadre

El Compadre is the Mexican restaurant where Chuck took Sarah on their first date when she was developing him as a possible asset, prior to her revealing herself as a CIA operative, and Chuck thought it was really a date. Over margaritas and Mariachi music, they chatted and had a nice time. He told her of Captain Awesome, and managed to avoid speaking of his ex, Jill, to her. She said that he was funny and commented, "I like you, Chuck," apparently a real sentiment, and not just cover patter.

Later, he mentions the date when he was trying to develop his own asset in Chuck Versus the Nacho Sampler, "Felt like I was having the luckiest day of my life. God, I was pathetic." To which she responded, "No, you were sweet and innocent. I liked you. It made it much harder."


El Compadre Mariachi

The restaurant was mirrored in Chuck Versus the Goodbye when Chuck and Sarah were in Berlin. The Mexican restaurant they followed their mark to was markedly similar to El Compadre, and this was commented on by Chuck, "This place looks just like El Compadre! It's a Mexican restaurant in LA. We went there when we first met...Sarah, this has got to be some kind of sign. I mean, think about it; El Compadre was sort of our first date. Not for you so much, you were still just, you know, being a spy back then, but for me, yeah, totally. I mean, I somehow thought I stumbled on a date with the most beautiful woman in the world. I was so nervous, and you were so amazing. We talked and laughed and had such a great time."
