I have become a pretty regular diner at Ernesto's, which now has 2 locations in the Pilot Point, Texas area. The food is always consistently good. My 2 favorites are the enchiladas and beef fajita nachos. The 1/2 order of nachos is good for a moderately hungry person without getting too full. The drinks are always good and the staff... More

We love their Chicken and beef nachos here, but other than that we have not had much else to eat here.

I judge most Mexican food by their salsa and service. The salsa here is good tasting but it has about as much heat in it as ketchup. Why call it Mexican salsa if there is no chili peppers in it. I did discover that you can ask for the hot salsa which is a little bit spicier, Oh well the... More

The Pollo Burrito was excellent. If I lived there I would work my way through everything on the menu. Definitely, a must visit if you... More

I judge all Mexican restaurants by their Cheese Enchiladas. The absolute best ones I've ever had were in a Snyder's Drugstore in Brownsville, TX; that was in January 1978. Those enchiladas positively melted in my mouth. They were AMAZING and they were only cheese enchiladas! Unfortunately, that drugstore is long gone. I've eaten many cheese enchiladas since 1978 trying to... More
