Love El Bracero! Food is always served fast and delicious! The staff are great. Celebrating birthdays here is especially fun. Take out is also a great option.

Best Mexican food around, service is always fast and friendly. Portions of food is always more than most can eat in one settings. Price is very good value for how much food you get. Would highly recommend to anyone coming thru the area.

This is one of my favorite places to grab mexican food. Their food is the best. The employees are nice. I think it's awesome how they come out with plates all the way up to their shoulders. I can barely carry two without a mishap. The Pollo Feliz is the best. Then again so is the Chimichanga..and the burrito..and the... More

I ate the thursday special for the week, it was the Kentucky burrito. The Kentucky burrito is an extremely large burrito, I get mine with steak. All the food I've tried here has been good, but this item was great.

I usually dread going to a "mexican" restaurant...which is NOT a mexican restaurant. I believe they all order from the same warehouse, surely nothing is cooked on site, just warmed up. The rice is all the same, very, very salty. The meat is all the same, very salty, and the chips all taste the same. Ditto the salsa. So disappointing... More

The food is good. The employees are not. One waiter was to busy checking out, talking and sitting at another table. We were there for twenty minutes when I finally walked to the register to ask can I order a water for me and a pop for my friend. The guy at the register told me my waiter will take... More

My first time trying them out. Went as part of a buisness lunch group. We all enjoyed our dishes and the salsa was very good. The chicken fajita was excellent and the building was clean with clean restrooms. Will be returning.

I really enjoy this restaurant! The food is great, the service is on time, and we enjoy the atmosphere. My friend likes to practice his Spanish and the staff is good about spending a few minutes with him.
