We needed a restaurant close by and luckily ran across Ernesto's by accident. Really great food, HUGE portions, cold beer and delicious margaritas. The waiters were very helpful in making recommendations and our food came out piping hot and exactly as we requested. We will drive out of our way to return. Our actual meal photos are better than the... More

We went here on a Monday for lunch. Been wanting to try it. It wasn't busy at 12:00 so we were seated right away. I had the Pollo Creme and I would recommend it. Delicious. Margaritas were very strong and kinda watered down. The staff was great and attended to every need. We'll give them another shot. Nice option close... More

My family and I went to Ernesto's Mexican last weekend. I've been a million times, but I don't think I've ever reviewed it! Ernesto's has a really nice menu with standard Mexican fare, some specialties of their own, and a full bar -- everyone is happy! I am trying to eat a little better here lately, so when the kids...

Stopped in for lunch. We find the service and the food consistently good and excellent for the price. Very impressed today when we observed that the restaurant picked up the tab for a police officer. Our media is all over negative stories, well here is a good story for you. This is certainly the type of establishment that we prefer... More

Fast, good, and reasonable. For a neighborhood restaurant, you can't go wrong! I had brisket tacos and they were excellent.

So I really like their food. The fajitas and tortillas soup are excellent, they have good salsa and tasty chips. My only disappointment is their happy hour margaritas are too expensive. When I go for a happy hour margarita, I expect it to be 5 bucks or less and theirs are not. So for happy hour, I go elsewhere but... More
