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

El Bracero consistently serves authentic Mexican (and a little Tex-Mex) that is spicy, flavorful and attractively priced. The place is clean, but nothing fancy. I think Jaime, the owner, makes the salsa fresh every morning. But here's the standout: Parrillada. It's about $40, but easily feeds three or four people. You choose your meats (three), and they grill it all... More

We came based on other reviews while we were passing through. I had the grilled quail and my husband put together ala carte meal w lamb chop, chili relanos and enchilada. Excellent.

El Bracero provides a savory alternative to standard Tex-Mex food. The mouth-watering aroma of the grilled meat greets you as you enter. Located in an old fast-food restaurant, this is a popular, family-friendly spot, with little space at busy hours. Go early. Reasonably priced variety of authentic Mexican grilled meats: beef, chicken, seafood, goat, etc. and a delicious combination of... More

Really good salsa, tasted fresh! Had the beef fajitas and it did not disappoint. Dining room is brightly lit, a little fast food-like atmosphere but food is great! Food came out super fast-
