I was in Pasadena, Texas killing some time and decided to find a place to eat lunch. There was an over abundance of fast food places to eat and I decided to find a more upscale place to eat. As I was driving around I saw Ernie's restaurant and noted there was a parking lot full of cars. Usually when you see a restaurant's parking lot full and it is the only business around it must be a good place to eat. So in I went.
I was told by the lady at the door that they only had a booth and a small table available. Another indication that this must be a very good restaurant.
They had a excellent menu and I chose: chicken fried chicken, mashed potatoes and white gravy, and okra. Over the years, I have eaten a lot of chicken fried meals and I have to admit this was outstanding as was the okra. Oh by the way, they serve hot sourdough rolls which were really great.
The service was excellent. The young lady was very efficient and had a great personality.
Bottom line, if you are ever in Pasadena, Texas you can be ensured that you will experience an excellent lunch. The only downside to Ernie's is the fact they are not open for any meals except lunch but it is worth trying out a place that has excellent food. By the way, the cost for lunch is very low compared to the value received....my meal was around $12.00.
