El Hefe Super Macho Taqueria

Along with an ingenious invention called table taps, self-serve beer taps of Coors Light and Dos Equis at each booth, there are a few decent food offerings to go along with the good times in this Mexican-themed bar and restaurant in Scottsdale’s entertainment district. The Sonoran-style menu, created by former Noca sous chef Steven Smith, features a humble offering of surprisingly wallet-friendly traditional standards with a few twists. Satisfying fare includes the macho nachos and the house made churros, but the best dish is the least Mexican one: the hamburger. Enjoy one paired with a selection of several alcoholic offerings from El Hefe (the name a play on the word jefe, the Spanish word for "boss”), in an atmosphere more metrosexual than macho.
