For those wanting a more "dining" experience; THIS IS THE PLACE. Tortilla soup is best I've ever eaten. Clean and the owners are the most gracious people. First ate there about 11/2 yrs ago and we've been back and made reservations for another night as well. Probably will eat there 3-4 times this trip. Don't hold back and come hungry.... More

We come for the ribs every year. This year we came during the week and ordered the tortilla soup and rib combo. We had heard good things about the soup and it did not disappoint. The ribs were amble so we are thinking no need to always come on the all-you-can-eat rib night when it gets so very crazy, busy.... More

We had read the reviews of Ernesto's Good Grub and decided to try it out. It is off the beaten path but the food and service were very good. I ordered the tortilla soup and it met and exceeded my expectations but make sure you order a small bowl if you are ordering an entree unless you have a very... More

Okay - when you take a taxi, you are a little concerned about where you're going. We've been there two years in a row and loved it both times. Not fancy but great ribs.

Everything good you have heard about their tortilla soup is true! It is the best we have ever eaten, and very filling. So order only a small bowl if you are adding it to your entree! Their coconut shrimp is also fabulous....huge shrimp! They don't show on the menu, but they are written on the wall! The restaurant is not... More

The tortilla soup was as wonderful as guests at our resort were saying. It was so yummy we cannot wait to go back with our friends this week. We had the small bowl and it is very ample. We then had their barbecued ribs, served with a perfect sweet tangy sauce. It is only a $6 taxis ride from the... More

We had dinner here for the first time and the food was fantastic. The tortilla soup is to die for. We ordered the large soup and shared it with the four of us. We ordered the ribs which we heard was really good and that is so true. The ribs are fall off the bone ribs and they are baby... More

Not fancy, but as others have said, the tortilla soup and ribs are real treats. The setting invites a party atmosphere. One caution - bring pesos. Credit cards not accepted.

If you like tortilla soup then you have visit this quaint little spot. It is truly a family operation. Also great ribs but we go primarily for the soup. It is the best we have found anywhere.
