Mexican

At El Hefe in Tempe, the atmosphere is unlike any place you have ever dined, in town or anywhere else for that matter. It is fun, energetic, casual, and full-tilt crazy at times. The only thing that is truly serious about El Hefe is the food which is made from scratch with high-quality fresh ingredients. Well, scratch that, because the 20-ounce margaritas as well as the house special bulldog-garita which is 32 ounces are pretty serious too.

The Mexican cuisine menu at El Hefe in Tempe has a number of great choices, including tacos, enchiladas, salads and appetizers. Notable mentions are the queso fundido dip, supermacho bowl and fried avocado tacos.

Not really authentic Mexican food. Salsa was bland at best and everthing was Gringo. The cadilacc margarita was not even close and they used Sugar around the rim?? Sugar?? Really?? New that's me, my east cost colleagues thought it was fine, but that's east coast.

I made a res for my son and I for dinner. We finally found parking and walked up to the bouncer. Being from out of town, didnt know it was 21 and over and they weren't even serving dinner!! We had to find another restaurant. Looked like a fun place to party though!!

It was fine...not great. Service was super slow, but friendly when she came by. Food was pretty standard. I probably wouldn’t go back. Too many other choices in the area for a “meh” meal.

we went there before the ASU vs CU game, and the music was at an all time high, so the us as an over 50 group it was way too loud. you could not hear anything. it does seem like the place to be for the younger college to mid 30's group, but just not for us. needless to say we did not stay and eat and found a much quieter place down the street
