The margarhita's are really good here. I had at least three. The food is delicious as well. I definitely needed it to sober up some. Lol

Some really great TexMex! We went on a Sunday evening and most patrons were locals, with lots of relatives in tow. We knew we had made the correct choice. Exterior and interior are nothing fancy, don't let that scare you away. The portions HUGE

Ehh nothing to write home about. Salsa was good chile verde was mild but flavourfull. Would like to see whole bean instead of just refried beans. Service was quick. This was for the location on bell st.

We ate at this place while staying over an extra night in Amarillo due to a late December snow storm. We had discussed where to eat and after seeing the reviews for El Bracero I held out and won the discussion. I think we were all glad of my choice. On arrival I recognized this place as a converted fast... More

Excellent food at a reasonable price. Good sized portions. I go through Amarillo once or twice a year and make it a point to stop at this restaurant.

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.

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.
