Twenty years ago, or even five, I would have given Ernesto's five stars. Apparently there has been a change in management / ownership. Our last three trips have been terrible. Would not have gone back after the first bad experience except they used to be so good that we kept giving them the benefit of the doubt. We will not be back any more. The quality of the food has gone to pot, the cheese dip is thin as water, and the place seems dirty. Our food was just lukewarm last trip.

Apparently our view is shared by many others. This restaurant used to be always packed. Our last few trips, vacant tables out numbered occupied tables about three to one.

Sorry to see this former landmark restaurant go.

Not your everyday TexMex type food- Very cozy and the food is great! Margaritas good too!

Disgusting is the only word I can come up with. Over the last year or so the quality of the food has changed a great deal, it is almost inedible. The restaurant itself is disgustingly filthy, tables, walls, floors, utensils, virtually everything in the building is spotted with food, grime and dirt. I can't imagine what the kitchen looks like, the ladies room was so bad that we didn't use it. Our entrees were all incorrect when they arrived but we had waited so long that we ate what we could and left, we certainly won't be back. Ernesto has been gone for many years but I know he would be humiliated at what this once great restaurant has become.

My cheese enchiladas arrived very quickly - only with cold, congealed cheese in the middle. This isn't the worst Mexican restaurant in Monroe, but it's not very good.

The salsa is amazing. The food is very good, just not authentic mexican food. It's very reasonably priced and you get your plate filled.
