Really good Mexican-style street food here. We tried the carne asada, beef barbacoa and carnitas tacos, a barbacoa burrito and brisket tamales. The tacos had good flavor (though their menu makes the flavors seem more complex than they actually were), and all the ingredients were fresh, which was awesome. The tamales were incredible-- perfect amount of salt & moisture, and... More

Best place for burritos where I've ever been. It's just so good, we went every week. And I can't wait to come back and go there again. I asked for "vegan" burrito and they delivered and it was absolutely outstanding

El Jefe is a great Mexican Tacos street style. The food is simple but very good and you cannot beat the prices. We have been there several times, taken friends there and have never been disappointed. They have both hard shelled and soft tacos. The pulled brisket taco is the best followed closely by the fish and the shrimp tacos.... More

Stopped here after being recommended at Charm City Burgers, and soooooo glad we stopped in. I came 2x while visiting my parents in Deerfield Beach. The tacos were fresh and delicious, and I really can't stop thinking about them. The menu can be a bit confusing to a new-comer, but the staff was helpful in explaining. Carnitas Tacos and Pork...

Was told about this place from an old coworker of mine. So ive wanted to try this place out for a while. The decor was neat. The staff didnt seem interested. I mean he was able to recommend which way to go when ordering but I just didnt get a good vibe from him. Or maybe I was just expecting... More

Great place for lunch, groups of friends, late night snack. Try #6, the salad with brisket.... Or the shrimp burrito. They have take out, too.

I have been here many times, is our spot to grab a real taco, the closest to an authentic mexican street taco. The "Tacos al Pastor" are the originals and delicious! Also love the Quesadilla (small) with Carnitas. The sauces are very tasty made from scratch. I tried last month something they invented as Special: "Platillo Volador" fantastic flavors and... More

I love that they are very authentic! It's hard to find a good taco in this area but when ever I need a taste of a home made taco or burrito they never disappoint. I recommend the steak salad and the Cuban tacos. I must say it is a bit high in the price range and I cant have it... More

This is a good place to grab a quick lunch, as I did this day. Downscale interior but with a neat and interesting wrestling motif. I'm not into wrestling, but I found the theme attractive. I went with the chicken burrito. It was pretty good and was of good size. The meal didn't come with chips and salsa, but I... More
