El Hefe Super Macho Taqueria in Chicago is not your average taco joint. Yeah, we serve up delicious little tortillas full of flavor, but we also boast the best Happy Hour, Tortas and Beer-Garitas in Chicago. You might just have to try it to decide for yourself!

Hmmm, how can we describe El Hefe? Think Dia de Los Muertos - but with style (and great-looking servers)! Have you ever tried a beer-garita?! Come in, be charmed and leave full!

At El Hefe we dish up all kinds of tacos: Pork al Pastor, Braised Beef, Duck Carnitas, Chicken, Carne Asada and more! And they don't stop there - add in an entrada (appetizer), Hefe Dog, Torta or finish off the meal with a dulce (dessert).

Are you more concerned with the beverage? El Hefe has some of the best Margaritas we've ever sipped. Grab one - or a beer-garita, frozen marg, beer, boxed wine (seriously!) - the list goes on and on!

How do you say "Cheers" in Spanish? At El Hefe we have earned it!

  • We loved that this was more of a sports bar Mexican restaurant than a fancy formal one like so many in the city seem to be. We were looking for a more casual laid back vibe and that is what we got her...  more »

  • It wasn't horrible but certainly not great. The place itself is fantastic and great for watching sports. The food is average in all honesty, and far from true Mexican food. The service was bad but that could be because of our waitress who was attractive but not prepared. A positive was the chef coming out to apologize on some mistakes of the waitress and giving us a free chips order.
  • Completely average downtown taco joint. Tacos looked great on the menu and looked like they were well thought. Execution when the food arrived was about par. The fresh made tortilla chips were solid. And the fresh made salsas served with the chips made up for the hum drum tacos. Pretty pricey for what I got.
