Hungry for thin, hot tortillas... got em! Want chorizo... no problem! Huevos Rancheros... good lord yes! We were visiting family in Douglas for a week and went back to Chef 3 days in a row. Seriously, this is some impressive, authentic Mexican food for the whole family and the service is fast and friendly. Just go already!

Our RV group, visiting Douglas for the Cochise County Fair, decided to go into town for a meal. Our wagon master found El Chef and made our reservation for 18 people ahead of time. I was very impressed with this little mom & pop restaurant's ability to serve such a large group with such efficiency. One server handled the whole... More

Delicious food. Wait staff very friendly. Prices very reasonable. Very family oriented. My caldo was the best I had ever had. We each ordered something different and we were not disappointed.

Nice quiet atmosphere with unique mexican decor. Gabe, our waitress, provided quick, friendly service. Our food was prepared fresh with real ingredients and look presentable. The food was NOT sitting in a warmer. Bathroom was clean. All the other costumers were local.

I'd recommend trying this mexican food restaurant. The service was good and the food pretty good as well. I don't really know what else to say except we'd eat here again next time in town.

We ate breakfast at Le Chef on the advice of a local and it was really, really good! Reasonably priced, totally delicious, authentic Mexican food in a charming atmosphere. The service was very friendly and extremely fast. I had an eggs, potatoes and vegetable dish, served with tortillas and beans. My buddy had chorizo and eggs. SO yummy. We would... More

This place serves large portions of typical fare. My enchiladas with green sauce were good, but the chili rellenos my companion ordered were a disappointment. Service was pleasant. The chairs were uncomfortable and no beer or wine is served. The reception is cluttered with many religious messages than some my find inappropriate.
