We ate there last night with friends. Everybody like their dishes but me. Don't get the queso fundido. I really didn't like it but my wife Jalesco special was good

This is a nice Mexican Restaurant, friendly servers, you get your food in a reasonable time. What I like about El Braceros is that they serve a nice steak, cooked to your specifications, they also have a nice salad.

I took a couple of clients here for lunch. We were greeted and seated promptly. Our orders were taken and food brought hot and quickly. Everything was very good. I'm not sure it is quiet enough here for a real business meeting, but for lunch and casual talk, it works great.

I've visited El Bracero several times and they are very consistent with service and food quality. Prices are very reasonable. If you're looking for great food at a great price, look no further!!

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.
