I would call this a local place. They have a few other locations but are owned by the same family. The food is good authentic Tex-Mex. The fajitas are very good and they give you enough sides to fix them right. Try the Fundido for something different. The service is always good and you will not be disappointed. You can't... More

The service was great but the food was amazing. I had the avocado enchiladas and they were delicious. We went at lunch and it was busy but the wait staff kept up and we were never out of our drinks.

Ernestos is typical Tex Mex. It isn't good for group because they don't like you coming with a group, even if you come say on a Friday night at 5pm. Service, food and drinks are all fine, just not amazing.

You can order Guacamole that they prefer fresh at the table - awesome!!! We had a Pronto lunch - they have a wide selection and the food was really good!! If it weren't so far I would definitely make this place a regular!!!

The chips and salsa were good. The chicken fajitas were not so much. It seemed they were prepared for noon meal. The chicken was dry, with warm up burns on all edges. Typically, a knife might be needed to cut through the meat. This meal required a knife to separate.

I go to Ernesto's at least once a month. They are always friendly, and my food is usually at my table within 5 minutes of ordering. Super fast. Especially fajitas... which are the best I've found anywhere in DFW.

Excellent Tex-Mex and great service. Mexican food priced right and attentive service. You can't go wrong here! Lunch menu is extensive and reasonably priced. You won't run out of chips or salsa because they pay attention to the tables.
