Thank you so much for the support of First Responders! Your kindness is much appreciated and my lunch was delicious! Captain CS, Charleston PD
Took a trip back in time and met my dad at my age this past weekend.
Had dinner with my family here last night. We enjoyed the fact that it offered so much room as opposed to the other restaurants on King Street. While waiting for our dinner, my 1yo daughter became a bit fussy, the waiter (I apologize but I do not remember his name) was extremely apologetic and even brought us a free queso. The wait was not an excessive one but he still made an excellent effort to keep us comfortable while waiting. After our meal the manager presented us with a few BOGO taco coupons for our next visit. Needless to say, on a trip where I had encountered ZERO “southern hospitality,” I was extremely impressed with the service that we received at El Jefe and we will most definitely be back! Thank you!
Upon my short time working here i enjoyed great texican food. The ribeye taco and aioli sauce is all that and then some but the management is terrible.
I was harassed and lied on by the owner Roy for no reason and when i expressed my concerns to the other owner he just brushed it aside after saying it would be handled. I was then accused of being entitled for not wanting to be spoken to like a child and driving a wedge between them when i just wanted the situation resolved. Words were put in my mouth and i was seen as the angry mad black woman (of course). I was told “i know how you are” without even being listened to. That says a lot about them. It’s one thing to run a business but if you don’t know how to treat people or SPEAK to them you won’t stay in business. The employees are brilliant and super attentive and will definitely show you a good time but if something is done wrong by management don’t call them out on it or you will be put out.
I’ll give it two stars for their marketing lady who seemed to care.
Our server Taylor was the GOAT. Great food and fun atmosphere.
They have a new Mechanical Bull on Thursday through Saturday starting at 9 pm. Ride the bull or just go to enjoy the show!!!! It's a blast!!!
