First time to Ernesto’s. Loved it. Food and service both excellent. Had heard the house margaritas were good and they absolutely were. $10.31 with tax. The plain quesadilla with carnitas was perfect: moist, flavorful carnitas and a good cheese. Big enough to share. The chocolate cake was melt-in-your-mouth, fresh, and again plenty for two to share. We sat at the bar and had excellent service from Camilo, and the manager stopped by to make sure all was well. Looking forward to next time!

Service was barely average. Mixed up our order and 2 items. We had 4 of us so 50%, not so good. We then asked for 4 waters and got 2. Once our meals came out the server removed our chips, had to ask for more and he seemed pissed about it. Maybe it was tops once upon a time but nowadays the answer is NO

Nice attentive service, plenty of chips and salsa. A nice clean place, you’d be comfortable taking a date here. Food, not spectacular, but checks the boxes.

ernestos was crowded indicating that it was very popular which we took to mean it was a good place for dinner...i can only speak for the two us but just average is all i can say...i am a tamale addict these fell short...not stuffed with meat was a problem and small was another...the price was ok but the ends of the tamale were a bit dry and a bit tough...part of my combo were flautas...tiny and low on filling and only two of these little buggers were served...hardly adequate...our tortilla soup was also less than special...big bowl but not flavorfull...we wont be back

We just wrapped up a family dinner at Ernesto's and it was great. The wait staff were very friendly and quick. Our meals were delicious although a couple of the meals got mixed up and had to be remade. We all really enjoyed the chips, salsa and bean dip. It is very easy to get full on just that appetizer.
