El Jefe is that friendly neighborhood cantina tucked off of the Saguaro hotel’s lobby where everyone comes for the cool margaritas, refreshing cervezas, and of course, the tacos (of which there are currently five varieties) as well as a selection of popular Mexican dishes like the shrimp ceviche tostada, potato flautas, and chicken tinga or nopales quesadillas on an all-day dining menu.  Known near and far for its tasty nachos, happy hour, and the area’s longest running Taco Tuesday (and now Taco Thursday), it’s no wonder that the local newspaper named El Jefe “Best Mexican Restaurant” in this year’s readers’ poll. With Palm Springs’ largest selection of tequilas and mescals, a hand-picked variety of locally-brewed beers, hand-crafted cocktails and its creative, contemporary Mexican-inspired menu served by the friendliest staff in town, travelers visiting Palm Springs must make a stop at El Jefe.
