While this restaurant won't beat out many in my home state, it was pretty good for dinner after a long day on the road. The meals were reasonably priced and the quantity of food was what you'd expect.

The food here isn't quite as good as what we had when we lived in Texas. But we had an enjoyable meal, certainly better than what we might have expected from a Mexican restaurant in the mid-West. We'll definitely be back as future trips take us through Sikeston.

I've always loved their food. Sometimes I pick up instead of fining in but am never disappointed. Very reasonably priced.

Nothing to get too excited about. I've had better but I've had worse. This place is in the middle. The Italian margarita was great, generous, and affordable. The food took a long time to come out for it to be so un spectacular.

The restaurant has the traditional authentic Mexican menu. The food is prepared well and served quickly. I recommend the Durango special or the chicken, cheese, and rice plate. The staff are very good about clearing tables and refilling drinks. Once you've been here a few times, the staff know what you want to order. El Bracero has and excellent Stampt... More

Nice sized place and easy to get to from Hwy 60 and Interstate 55. Chips and salsa were good with right amount of cilantro. Food was average to good but the service was not up to par for a very good rating. All in all if you want Mexican food, it may worth a try.
