This restaurant has both Tex-Mex & “heart of Mexico” cuisine. The family-style grilled food is excellent! Quail & shrimp are both great choices! I recommend this restaurant highly!

Very fresh food. Very enjoyable meal. Had the burrito dinner and there was nothing on the plate I didn't enjoy. Too much to finish!

Shared a chicken/shrimp grilled Fajita plate. It arrived timely, hot, plentiful and good. Service was very good. Margaritas are huge, good and inexpensive. Chose El Bracero because of TripAdvisor.

This place seems to be very popular. The hot sauce is good. The guacamole is very average. The enchiladas are great. The rice and beans are superb. The chips are ok. The service was very good. Overall, it is a good Mexican place.

I had Pollo Sante fe and my husband had quail. Both dishes were excellent! Sides were your normal Mexican restaurant rice and beans. Lots of seafood choices. My dish came with 3 jumbo grilled shrimp.

I've been to their location on Bell street on a Sunday, so while I"m not 100% sure the 6th street location is open on Sunday, I'd bet my last dollar it is.
