It's been a popular spot for years. It's a solid choice for lunch or dinner. The service is excellent, fajitas are awesome!

Great food here. Really better entree choices that a lot of typical Tex-mex type places. They have a lot of unique and authentic things on the menu. We brought family from out of town and they all gave rave reviews. The fried chicken breast with the cream queso sauce is my favorite--pechuga empanizada, it's called. My mom got the relleno...

This is such a great place. We are visiting family and they raved about the Mexican dishes. Big place, great decor, crowded with everyone enjoying. Chips and great salsa are served warm and so thin and fresh. We all had the shrimp dishes. Shrimp wrapped in bacon. I had shrimp in garlic. They were all served with yellow rice, white... More

When you're limited on your choices of Mexican food Ernesto's is the next best thing. It is a neighborhood staple and has been around for at least 15 years.

They have great food and service. Love their margaritas, the beer-Rita is my favorite! Never had anything I didn't like. Always stop here anytime we go to the lake and since we live closer by it is a go to anytime we don't want to cook. :)

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.
