About Us

Taqueria El Jefe is a colorful, modern “world beat taqueria” - a playful collision of traditionally inspired Mexican tacos influenced by global flavors. The chef-driven menu features tacos with a variety of creative ingredients and deep flavors, including traditional Mexican street eats such as al pastor and signature food items like Mexi Brisket and a taco of the day.

Our bright aquamarine and orange décor provides a fun, casual atmosphere that accents our diverse dining menu. Pop in for a taco to go or linger at the counter and enjoy a tequila shot with chips and salsa. Our restaurant is centrally located at the Mayfair Collection in Wauwatosa just off I-45 and Burleigh. Come on in and indulge at Taqueria El Jefe!
