“Nearly every Friday night”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 28, 2014

We simply love Ernesto's, and are there most every Friday night. We started going to Ernesto's when all they had was their Pilot Point restaurant. This is truly a family owned business ... yes, there really is an Ernesto! They offer so much more than just TexMex, which is so refreshing! We always receive good, hot food with a smile from their waiters. It can be very busy during the dinner hour, but worth the wait (or go a little early to avoid the crowds).

“A good place with lots of competition”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2014

Ernesto's holds up well in a market with very tough completion. Its a clean place. A family place with a good staff. I've been to this location 3 times and every time the staff are courteous and helpful. The food doesn't go above and beyond but it holds its own. Certainly isn't bad in any way. Ernesto's is creating a very good reputation for itself. Its a very respectable place with good food. Glad to see it doing well. Its a strait forward place. No frills or quaint areas for a romantic date. Just good food at fair prices to fill the belly. Lunch and meeting friends or a quick bite for dinner. Take out is a good idea here. Get it to go and watch a movie at home while enjoying the food.

“We walked out”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed July 7, 2014

We tried to eat dinner there tonight but couldn't because their computers were down and they had no idea when they would be functional. Apparently all service had to stop, and they could not have cared less.

“Good Mexican Foof”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 23, 2014

I love this place. It's close to home, they have more of the authentic Mexican food rather than Tex Mex and they have good liquor at the bar. We enjoy going in on Sunday afternoon for a drink, chips and salsa. Relocating from California, I have been disappointed in Mexican food because it's not what I was raised on. When we found this place, it was a very good substitute.

“Our go-to place for Mexican”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 1, 2014

Our family eats at Ernesto's probably somewhere between once a month to every other week. We love their chicken enchiladas, taco salad, fajitas and salad with shrimp. It can get a bit crowded at dinner time, but going earlier can solve that problem. Service is very good, to excellent, depending on who your waiter is. The food is consistently good. Their margaritas are good too. Prices are reasonable. Lots of families eat here, so expect the noise level to be a little high when the place is busy.
