    "Street style" tacos AL carbon ROCK; the salsa is strong (quality AND taste) as well!

    Unique twist on the quesadilla - it's served like a taco and the grilled steak is delish!

    The creation of chef Mike Saperstein and partner Evan David -- the pair behind Charm City Burgers -- El Jefe Luchador offers “hard-core Mexican street food” in a fun environment.

    Hate to say it, but this used to be my favorite taqueria. No more. The quality has seriously degraded. I get better quality tacos at a better price at Tortilleria Mexico on Dixie hwy in Ft Lauderdale

    The quesadillas are not quesadillas, so make sure you ask them to describe what you're ordering.

    Avoid the guacamole (insipid), stick to the fried foods (chicken & shrimp), and you might have a pleasant meal. Teenage staff not interested in service.

    10pm. Gang if customers drinking from their own bottle out front & staff appear to be having a party in the back. They only come out to serve after customers stand at the counter for several minutes.

    Best Fresh Mexican!

    Best tacos ever!!!!!!!!!!!!! Spit-roasted pork with pineapple is off the chain!!!!!!

    Go to Taco Bell instead. It's comparable. The food isn't good, overpriced and all the tables are dirty with 6 customers in the whole place.

    Better music this time! Food looks as good as always, great!

    Great place! Nice people. Food is one of the best around. Today, the music was a little over the edge. I will be back, but doubt that the older couple will.

    I love tacos al carbon with sweet potatoes & mushrooms instead of meat or chicken... Yummy for vegetarians too

    AdrienneRose Gionta · December 22, 2012
  • Cristina S.

    They remind me of tacos Al carbon in lake worth. Must try: carne asada and carnitas tacos, with nachos to share. Stay away from the chorizo, the other meats are better. I love el jefe!

    The quesadilla is a perfect combination of savory and sweet! Guacamole is amazing! Must order! Read more

    Might sound like an off combination but the sweet potato and pineapple combo in "the champion" quesadilla stands on it's own as amazing!

    New Times Broward Palm Beach · August 30, 2012
  • New Times Broward Palm Beach

    Stacks on stacks on stacks of cheesy Mexican goodness, loving those nachos!!!

    Try the Mistico Taco (barbacoa, mushrooms, oaxaca cheese, mole negro, caramelized onion, and truffle crema) Delish~

    Brilliant Mexico City-style tacos, with some salads, quesadillas and tortas thrown in the mix.

    Nachos and Quesadilla were good

  • Steven ¯.

    Not a fan of the gnats flying around the soda machine... TIP: hot water and cap full of bleach goes long way. HUNTY!

    You had me at Ultimo Dragon, how can you beat kimchee and hoisin in a taco? Plenty of crowd pleasers for more traditional tastes. Some of the freshest and best tasting tacos to be had in South FL.

  • Brittany D.

    Best tacos in town. The mystico is one of my favorites.

    Brittany Dawn · January 28, 2012

    The pork belly taco they had on special was probably one of the best I have ever had!!!

    Eddie Kotlyarov · January 10, 2012

    Saperstein has done it again! The burger taco was amazing, but the barbacoa taco was the best.
