I'm talking about Ernesto's Good Grub in Jarretaderas, just south of Nuevo Vallarta, and just off the highway to Puerto Vallarta. This little restaurant, built on the enlarged patio of the family's home on the edge of the little town of Jerretaderas, has always made me feel welcome. I should have reviewed it before now, since it's always in contention when friends yell "Where d'ya wanna go for dinner tonight?"
Most of my friends choose the "all you can eat" ribs which are slowly cooked for hours in a succulent BBQ sauce. I have eaten their burgers and their chicken dishes, as well as fish plates, and I have never been disappointed. I'm not a tortilla soup lover, but friends say it's the best in the bay.
Service over the years has become a little slower as they've become busier and busier, but no less eager to please. They treat you like family, and yet also like a treasured guest, so if you need anything, just holler or go to the kitchen and ask for it. The kitchen is wide open so you can see all the cooking going on!
Ernesto's Good Grub in Jarretaderas, without a fancy view, is the best place to receive true, warm, Mexican hospitality and down-home good food. The combination is magical!
