Welcome to El Hefe Tempe

Mexican restaurants Tempe
El Hefe Super Macho Taqueria in Tempe 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 Tempe. 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!

Don’t Take Our Word For It..

Tempe Mill Ave Restaurants“Loved that El Hefe Tempe opened up recently! I love the food so I couldn’t wait since this location is much closer to my work and I was looking forward to another lunch spot staple!

I went in on a Monday and brought a co-worker and Amber helped us. My co-worker ordered the nachos but had a specific request and I ordered the Camaron Ceviche Tostada’s and they were awesome. Amber made sure to come back while they were making our food to confirm with my co-worker her order since it was custom (love that they will do that with any of their menu items since everything is made fresh). Everything came out perfectly. I was such a great lunch and will look forward to going back….

Went back last Friday again with another co-worker! We shared the chips, salsa and guac and that was outstanding! Then we both ordered The Chopped Salad with Steak (her’s minus the goat cheese, but I took hers on the side of mine). and that was outstanding! The best salad in my opinion right now. Amber was also our server again and she is so friendly and even remembered my order from Monday!

This is a great lunch spot as you can sit inside our outside (nice break from being in the office). We have scheduled a work happy hour there in the very near future so that will be fun as I know their cocktails are very delicious! Looking forward going again very soon!!”

"On a business trip, I needed a solo dinner that wouldn't feel formal. This place was welcoming and surprised me with some excellent, very picante enchiladas prepared Mexico-city style and excellent beer. Sure, it's a college hangout, and you clearly have to be hot if you're a waitress here. But I was satisfied by the careful preparation of all the things I ordered. "

"I know El Hefe is known for their packed to the hilt crazy nightlife but we decided to try their menu for dinner because the place we had plans to go was closed. So glad we did! The food was surprisingly good for being a "bar". Service was spot on and everyone was friendly. Have been back several times since then, glad our first choice was closed now!"

"Every time I go to El Hefe I enjoy my experience! The service is great, the food is delicious and it's always a great time. I was a little apprehensive about going there for brunch and was in shock by how fresh and amazing the churro toast was! The breakfast nachos were probably the best brunch dish I have ever head in Tempe. Amazing!"
