Food and service were on point. Had a nice tequila selection and huge menu. We started with chips, salsa and guacamole. I had rellenos, my wife had a vegetable bowl , and my son had a quesadilla. Then the key lime pie and churros for desert, both were delicious.

About the restaurant
Our menu is inspired by the Mexican regions of Yucatán, Oaxaca, and Veracruz. We strive to respect the influences and traditions of these diverse cultures to bring you food that is uniquely El Jefe.

We believe in doing things the right way. Not because it’s trendy or cool, but because it’s right. We change our menu with the grow season, supporting our neighbors and the terroir of Colorado. We are not your average Mexican joint, rather a reflection of our environment and beliefs.

We hand make our tortillas every day. All of our pork comes from one whole hog. Our chefs breakdown the whole animal, for chorizo, appetizers, stocks, soups, and entrees. Nothing is wasted. We do this out of respect for the animal and for the people who raised them for us. Anything we can produce in our kitchen is done by us, with love. No frills, just good food.

We do an amazing brunch on the weekends, and by default or menu is nearly 100% gluten free.

On June 15, it was the first visit to El Jefe for my friend and me. We lucked out with Tina as our fun and enthusiastic waitperson. She made our dinner special with recommendations about menu items. She checked back with us frequently to make sure our food was fantastic. (It was.) When we asked about El Jefe’s nixtamal items, Tina brought us a generous sample of chips and Xni-Pec. Delicious! The atmosphere at El Jefe is relaxed while being festive. Big windows allow in light and views of beautiful trees and neighborhood activity. The flavors are authentic Mexico, from the mole enchiladas, the guacamole, succulent carnitas...echoing the chefs' origins in Yucatán and Oaxaca (both places I've been). Fabulous!

El Segundo is a high-energy, fast-paced, sophisticated semi-traditional taqueria & tequila bar, in the middle of Vail Village.

Service was spot on. Food came out in a timely manner and was delicious. Only problem was a table of 8 way up in the corner that was so loud my wife and I couldn't hear each other speak. The manager should have went over there and asked them to lower their voices so others can fully enjoy their experience. We would go back and try it again, because the food and service were so good.

Vail
About the restaurant
Los Amigos, Vail's oldest Mexican restaurant, a great atmosphere for recovering from any activity. Los Amigos has been anchored at the top of Bridge Street since 1972. Come enjoy Vail Village's best view of the slopes, winter and summer. Our deck is perfect for enjoying a Mi Amigo margarita while watching skiers trying one last plunge down Pepi's Face or watching their kids play at Pirate Ship Park. Among our veteran staff, we draw inspiration from our
Hispanic kitchen who have created unique and authentic Mexican dishes like Lobster Tacos: a delicious blend of panko crusted lobster with lime cabbage, Mexican tartar sauce and mango salsa served in a soft flour tortilla. Great Atmosphere, Great Food, Great Location, Family Friendly.
