El Bracero

See also

El Bracero, located at 927 Pine Lake Avenue, La Porte, Indiana, was a delightful surprise. With an authentic Mexican ambiance and a no-frills approach, this restaurant serves up an expansive menu of true Mexican dishes with a little bit of Tex-Mex thrown in. The premiere dish is probably the fajitas, particularly the Fajitas Mexicanas with chicken, steak and chorizo. This dish is reasonably priced below $10. As is standard for most Mexican restaurants, the chips and salsa get to your table quickly and the salsa is among the best I have had.

The service has never disappointed and the food was served hot with enormous portions. As a bonus, they serve beer and the margaritas here and have a great reputation for serving high quality margaritas for a terrific price.

They offer dine in or carry out service.

El Bracero has another location at 4100 Franklin Street in Michigan City, Indiana. Their phone number is (219) 872- 0762. The La Porte restaurant is (219)369-0800. Since neither has a website, it may be a good idea to call ahead of time to get their hours as the hours have varied a few times during the past year.
