    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

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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
  • New Times Broward Palm Beach
    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
    Stacks on stacks on stacks of cheesy Mexican goodness, loving those nachos!!!

  • New Times Broward Palm Beach
    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.
