If you love authentic Mexican food, you'll love this spot. It's around the corner from my office, so I've tried a lot of the menu. Also, having been so often, I can tell you that it's very consistent and they're always finding some locally sourced fresh items to put on the menu. Service is a little slow, as they prepare...

First timers. Different type of eatery but very good. The girl that took our order was very pleasant and patient... Told us about the menu and how to order... I had the Chicken Tacos and my girl had the Burrito Pork version... Excellent quality and amount of food. Left happy and full.

Being a patron quite often of this restaurant, I deem in necessary for me to write a review of their food. So damn good! I've been going to this restaurant since its opening and the additions have been amazing with their menu. I started off getting their tortas with the combination of their meats (carnitas, al pastor, barbacoa, chorizo, carne... More

I haven't had a failure at Jefe. Every time I visit the staff is always friendly and helpful and the food is always amazing. I've already converted 6 of my friends to this place.

Same guy as Charm City Burger and one of my favorites, Rebel House. Very funky restaurant. Very good food with a wide variety. You can chose 7 different items for your tacos, burritos, quesadillas, and other entrees. Definitely a place you must try if you are in Deerfield or just want some funky Mexican food.

This little out-of-the-way fast food Mexican restaurant is a true treat. Food is excellent! We had steak quesidillas and tacos... Very tasty. Good prices. Best quesidillas I've had in South Florida. Clean bathrooms. Nice staff. Interesting masks on the walls. Don't miss this special treat!

Though the shrimp tacos were tasty, they weren't worth the high price I paid for them. I couldn't get full (and satisfied) eating 2 of them. By the way.. the service/cashier was nonchalant and lacked good customer service skills.

El Jefe is a must go. Their salad is the best. Actually I have tried just about everything and was never disappointed. The restaurant is small but you can always find seating. The food is fresh, unique, and yummo
