I think this may be the best Mexican restaurant we've ever been to. Everything is very fresh and delicious. The salsa is amazing. I'm not sure of the name of what I had but OMGOODNESS!

I tried the Jalisco special and it was delicious. We also ordered the chunky guacamole and that was just too good. Definitely a place to check out.

We stopped here for our evening meal. Very busy and noisy! My frozen margarita was delicious as was my taco salad. My husband ordered the shrimp burrito and said it had an odd flavor and was lukewarm. Bartender was very accommodating and zapped it for him.

My wife and I took her sister and husband out to eat one evening. They chose this restaurant because they like it so well. The food was tasty and reasonably priced. We would go back again.

This place has great food and really good service too. The taco salad was great and the fried ice cream was very good too. Will definitely go there again.

We arrived after 8:00 pm with a very large group. Sitting was immediate and there were six servers assigned to our group. Drinks were kept filled, orders were delivered promptly and without any confusion as to who ordered what. I don't drink but heard the margaritas were excellent, heard no complaints about the food and no plates were sent back.... More

Our family LOVES El Bracero! We eat here at least once a week. When my kids come home from college, this is their first request.
