Older restaurant, not in the trendy area of town, but friendly, efficient service, good prices, clean (including restrooms). Has it's own parking, which is a plus in that town!

Really simple and unassuming restaurant. Food is pretty good and service is quick. Love the machaca. Always come here for Mexican.

authentic Mexican food, quaint. Not greasy, very fresh tasting, the fish and chips are fabulous. The soup is also very good, beer on tap.

We go to El Jefe every monday and enjoy their food selection week after week. They have items not found in many restaurants serving Mexican food. Everything tastes great.

And I won't eat here. Tried to twice...same results. Bleh! Need more? The service was so laid back they barely know you came in the door. Food just unimpressive.
