Great authentic Mexican

We had the double fajita special, chicken and beef. It was great. Interestingly, the chilled beer glasses were salt rimmed. That was new for us, but good as well.

We went for lunch and our food was very good. The salsas were very good. I ordered the cactus with beef. It was delicious and not to expensive. The service was very good and it was packed.

Very good, legit Mexican food. If you like chain Mexican you probably won't enjoy but if you like cabrito and other real Mexican you will enjoy

This placed was packed and after eating there I can see why. So delicious! I had chicken tacos al carbon. The chicken was cooked to perfection and so yummy! My husband had the enchiladas dinner with spinach and mushroom enchiladas - he loved it. The tortillas were wonderful - salsa, guacamole - also terrific. Very reasonably priced. The service was...

This is a neighborhood restaurant and is always busy at lunch and supper. The food is excellent with reasonable pricing. It is not too far off I-40 and on a main Amarillo street, so that a traveler, not in a hurry could find it. Love their salsa and because I am a born and raised New Mexico girl, ask for... More

We were travelling through Amarillo and wanted to eat supper. We fired up the Trip Advisor App and came to El Bracero. We were glad we ate here. Even though it was 6pm, there was no wait for a table. The place was soon filled with locals who appeared to frequent the place. This is more of a joint than... More

I had the Pork Carnitas and my friends had all different dishes. We all liked them. I've had better in Los Angeles. I felt these were a little on the bland side. But I really did enjoy them. I liked having the sauteed onions and jalapenos with it.

The dinner for two grilled plate is what we got and the flavors were on point! The meat was tender.. The spicy shrimp was so flavorful! I was a little hesitant walking in but the food and service were A+.. The salsa wasn't my favorite but I'm pretty picky about my salsa

We were lucky to have enough time in Amarillo on this day to go to El Bracero on Bell Street, having been there once before and really enjoying it. I had the marinated, grilled quail but don't remember what my husband had. The quail was absolutely perfect! The flavor was wonderful, and while grilled, they were plump and juicy. Yummers!... More
