We visited this restaurant on a recommendation from my mother in law and it was great. I ordered the chicken tortilla soup and although it was spicy there was enough avocado to cool me down and it had large chunks of chicken. The gentleman with the chips kept them coming and they were nice and crispy, the salsa is very... More

We've been here a couple times and it's good tex-mex. Fast service, tho not very attentive. There's not much to choose from around here, so it's still a winner.

Probably been to Ernesto's over 100 times. It's a small town and we don't have much to choose from but it is always hot and fresh with super sincere young waitstaff. And did I mention the bar??? Excellent margaritas.

Every time I visit Pilot Point on business I opt for dinner here. I think the margaritas a bit weak on tequila but the food very well seasoned. Carne Asada great as well as Camarones de Mojo de Ajo. Also camarones with cheese flamed!

Food is rushed and is no longer very good. The cigarette smoke from the bar goes everywhere and the roach did it for me.

I have eaten at Ernesto's twice in the last few months. The food is consistently outstanding. I love the flavoring of the Carne Asada, and the Camarones Mojo de Ajo was excellent. Tablemade guacamole and the house margaritas are not to be missed. Service excellent.

Have eaten here many times over the last 10 years, always good and served hot, staff is always friendly. Their Chicken Chimichanga with the Ranchero Sauce is the best and I get it most of the time.

The food was good. Typical Mexican fare. But it was a good value as meal is not pricey. Large seating area and is able to accommodate large groups easily.
