This place had a great first impression with me: -seemed crowded, but we got seats with NO wait -decor and atmosphere was intriguing (Tex-Mex theme) -tortilla-makers are out in the open so you can watch them crank 'em out! I ordered the pork sandwich and did not like it...I was almost disgusted cause of the chunks of fat were just so huge....I guess that's not their most-prized dish, BUT I could totally go back for more 'corn cake'! delish! My friends ordered the Taco special and they thought it was decent but we were all so full from the chips they serve before the meal that we took the rest to go! Better than leaving hungry, though! If you don't like being embarrassed on your birthday, don't go here! Other than that, I would go back again, and the 'sopapillas' that they serve as the birthday dessert are DELICIOUS!
We go to El Jefe 2-3 times per month. The food is always delicious. Every meal we have tried has been wonderfully flavorful and rich. The spicy dishes are authentically spicy... no blanding down for the American palate here! We have been to the Taqueria in Kennett numerous times, but the meals are not as evenly tasteful there. (The only exception is the green salsa). The only complaint I have with El Jefe is that the service is incredibly slow on drinks and drink refills. (even on the alcohol, which you would think they'd realize would make them more money?!) If you are ordering spicy food, get water to stand next to your magarita!
MMMMMMmmmm Don Pablo's. Just the sound of that makes my mouth water. Don Pablo's is as close to authentic as you're going to get with a Mexican chain. The tortilla chips and sauces are made fresh on-site and the food is always consistent and doesn't taste like it's been reheated or under warming lights. My favorite dish is the corn pudding. I always ask for a bowl on the side to go along with the serving I get with my meal. The chimichangas are to die for, honestly!
