Not mexican fare

We were looking for mexican food but this is more like tijuana flats-chipoltes mixed together with an old time mexican wrestling theme. The menu is confusing but cute after you study it for a while. Tried the tacos al carbon which had good flavor but we're dry. The burrito had good flavors and the... read more

A Mexican wrestling-themed counter-service joint with their own gourmet take on Mexico City street-style tacos. Great ambiance, fantastic food. The nachos are a great value and are amazing. I highly recommend the roasted corn, also.

The Southern Gent is a very tasty staple street taco here. However, I always make a point to try the special taco of the day (soft). They are a buck or so more than the menu tacos, but often worth it as a great way to discover some unique flavours. If they have pork belly, make sure you hop on... More

My husband and I stopped here for a couple tacos. We tried the fish, pulled pork and cubano. I thought the fish was good, he thought it was a little fishy. He liked the cubano the best which was a special. They didn't come with anything. We had a couple beers. You order at the register and then pick up... More

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.
