Party of 4 friends in the afternoon on a long communal table eating different things and everyone was really happy at this place. Food was fresh and seasoned tasty. Great spot.

The staff is nice and when I ordered a specific menu item with no meat they alerted me of other products in the food that could concern me if I were a vegetarian or vegan. The menu is sorta confusing so I appreciated that. The food is great.

This place was great. Our party had a fair sampling of everything and no one walked away disappointed. Even the kids enjoyed.

Now I know why @ 10 PM on a Friday night theres nobody in the place eating, that should have been my first clue to run for the hills.

First time in when I was in the area for business. Service was quick, great menu selections that were unique and Chef driven choices were exceptionally tasty. Had the Chicharron Taco and Fried Chicken Taco and just enough for lunch. Mexican "Street" Food is a an interesting twist on things and definitely will be back.....Hope they eventually get other locations... More

Stopped here for lunch for the first time. Great funky place with DELICIOUS tacos. We tried several but hands down the Charm City Burger Taco was THE BEST!!!!!! Also had their salad which was very good too. Plenty of "stuff" in the salad besides lettuce. I'll definitely be back!

We tried this casual no frills restaurant last week and were pleasantly surprised to find good food and a nice staff at this store front Mexican. They have a surprisingly large but simple menu with all fresh ingredients. A good idea is to stop by before and pick up a menu - this way it's easier to choose your order.... More

Simple, good Mexican food. Well worth stopping off 95 if you're passing by. Tortilla soup was very good. Carne Asada tacos tasty. Service was friendly and quick.

Last week my wife & I had the pleasure of experiencing El Jefe. I did not know what to expect from the sign on the front "Mexican street food", but I was willing to find out. We ordered El Chicharron (crispy pork belly with ancho-smoked tomato, salsa suave, guacamole, cabbage slaw) and El Rey (crispy shrimp taco with mayonesa picante... More
