New Times Broward-Palm Beach's Description

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. Tables and chairs wear primary colors. Flamboyant lucha libre wrestling masks are mounted on one wall. A gaudy crystal chandelier hangs from tin ceilings. ZZ Top blares through the speakers. Plates have names like “Vampiro” and “Dos Locos Gringos.” Bold décor parallels bold flavors in the food that’s coming out of the kitchen here. Chicken or rib-eye asada tacos are the most popular, but foodies love the more adventurous pork carnitas (citrus garlic-braised pork shoulder), barbacoa (braised beef brisket), or mushrooms and yam. Toppings here are traditional yet flavorful: a ripe tomato and onion medley, tart lime, cilantro, and queso blanco.

Tips from foursquare

  • Lauren S. on 05/28/11

    Don't forget a side of guacamole.

  • Jill S. on 05/16/11

    The corn is so good. So are the nachos and the quesadilla.....

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

  • Jessica S. on 01/02/12

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

  • Nicolle C. on 08/11/11

    Grossssssss! Freezer burn old chorizo burgers from charm city cut up and thrown into my taco.
