Stopped through Amarillo on our way back from vacation and tried El Bracero based on the excellent reviews. What a disappointment! The food was greasy and without much flavor. Very low quality. The queso tasted more like cheese gravy. The lone exception was the guacamole... it was fresh and delicious. Texas has an abundance of delicious Mexican food restaurants, unfortunately,... More

We stopped here for dinner when staying in Amarillo. We had been in Colorado for a month and were anxious for some tasty Mexican food. The food was authentic but on the bland side for what we are used to. My husband had the combination plate and I had the chicken with mushrooms and cheese. Both were good, although I... More

Typical Tex-Mex again. It is not Mexican. Sigh, when will people get that right? Decent edible food, cheap. If you must shovel food into your mouth for energy, this place will do.

A friend recommended El Bracero to us and we are very glad he did. The food is awesome! I had the carne guisado and wife had pollo cilantro and both were over the top good. The only negative thing about the place is it is crowded and loud, but if you can ignore that,a really good meal awaits you.

The food here is AMAZING!!! The food is also priced very well. I had the Enchilada dinner with Salsa Ranchera. It came with two Huge enchiladas with a huge serving of beans and rice. Also the servers were very friendly.

We have gone to this restaurant multiple times since we live relatively close. This last time we went, i ordered the famous parrillada for my family. It was delicious! This restaurant does have an authentic mexican taste and feel to it. My family and i are sure to go back yet again.

We were travel through and stopped in Amarillo for the night. I wanted authentic Mexican food for dinner. After reading the reviews, we chose this restaurant. It wasn't very appealing on the outside but the inside was clean. The service and food was fantastic. I had a chimichanga, it was delicious. I was disappointed that they didn't serve Margaritas but... More

The reviews were good so we gave it a try. We simply had the special (3 tacos), they were great and more than either of us could eat. The prices are very reasonable as well. We'll certainly be stopping here again.

Pay attention to the area for this locals favorite. Funky decor gives an indication of good food to come. Ample portions--many dishes have a shared size. Excellent real Mexican food at a very reasonable price. Find this restaurant for a great time
