A pleasant surprise

Warm and welcoming, the food is very good, and the deserts are amazing. The fajitas are excellent, and more than enough to fill your stomach. Place can get crowded but people come there for a reason. A good value for the quality of food served.

Great food. The atmosphere at our early dinner was great until the silverware wrapping busboys starting obnoxiously cussing about their social lives behind us in the bar. Kind of ruined the evening. Waitress was nice but disappeared for extended periods of time.

We try to visit Ernesto's at least once a week. I always get their chicken breast with mole/brisket taco plate. As my friends back east might say, it's to die for! My wife always gets an enchilada plate. The servers are always on top of their game. They really seem to give a damn. A rare and vanishing commodity in... More

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.
