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-

This is the 2nd location (other on 6th St.) Both are very good. This location is very small needs better ventilation (grill smoke) but worth it for some of the best Authentic Mexican food in town.

We went here based on Tripadvisor. It hasn't led us wrong too often but this was a bad idea. The people that run the place are nice, the place is clean, the food is quickly prepared but: 1. We were served chips and salsa. The salsa was good but not great. The chips were poor. They tasted like they'd been... More

My wife and I ate here while traveling to Colorado, based on reviews from TripAdvisor. The recomendations were absolutely on target. The restaurant is in a repurposed competitor restaurant and is decorated with pictures and paraphenalia of Mexico. Service: Prompt, friendly, and very helpful, even providing generous samples of some of their sauces which we weren't familiar with. Food: We... More

We visited yesterday. The food - EXCELLENT!! The reviews are correct. Great food, inexpensive. I had the carne asada and it was incredible - great flavor and you could literally cut it with a fork. My husband had a stuffed burrito, and while it was good, I out-ordered him!! I would give this four stars, except, our table was not... More
