If you want rude service come here. If not still don’t come here I am sure they didn’t let me in because I am a person of color. But even though they verified my ID there was still “something off “

You have to be in the mood for a college-town atmosphere!
Came on Easter Sunday. The food and drinks were spectacular! Chips and fresh guacamole were excellent. I had fajitas that were fantastic and hubby had the 3 taco plate that he enjoyed.
Margarita was YUM too.

We went to El Hefe mainly for horchatas which was pretty good. We also ordered the Queso Fundido Dip, which was a good appetizer to share with a few people. I also ordered the Tres Tacos Especial, the meat in the tacos were a bit overcooked for me personally and the beans were slighlty too salty.

This is a pretty popular place at nigh for a younger crowd, but I was pleasnantly surprised by the nice quiet atmosphere during lunch. I loved the selection of tacos, and the young lady who was our server was very sweet. The great taste of the food hit the spot!
