Very very good! I've head Mexican food from several restaurants all over the country, this may have been my favorite. Our food was delivered about 5 minutes after we ordered. Our drinks stayed full, and they loved on our kids (but not in a creepy way) I was able to watch some basketball on one of the tvs. Ordered chicken... More

Our family love El Braceros! Everyone is always very friendly, and the service is great. We've never had anything off the menu we didn't like. One of our favorites is the Jalisco...it has everything good all on one plate. Cheese dip is always good and the kids love it. Mom and Dad enjoy all the drinks that are offered. 😉

We like to stop here when we are in Hopkinsville. It is just next door to our hotel. We really like the food. The service is quick. The employees are al very nice. And they keep it clean even when the place is busy. We will be back again on our next trip to town.

Read the reviews about the margaritas...agree with the comments. The tacos el pastor were a bit disappointing from others I've had. Still tasty. I would choose differently on another visit while still recommending you stop in for food. Had I been with a group, would love to try the table made guacamole. Enjoyed the experience and would visit again

Had a great meal traveling through town. I had the fajita shrimp nachos and my son had the chicken quesadillas. Service and food were great.

My wife and I have eaten here a few times and have never been disappointed. Nice atmosphere, good service and great food. We both had the Bracero Bowl, mine with beef tips and hers with ground beef, and you need to have a big appetite to finish it!

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!
