“La Jefa” translates to “The Boss” in English, and visitors to this popular casual spot tend to agree that La Jefa is chief among Tapachula’s restaurants. Daily specials feature regional favorites, such as pork tacos in a pipián (pumpkin seed) sauce and tortilla soup. Local beers wash it all down and guests love the botanas, or bar snacks, included with each meal.
