Ernesto's Restaurant Review

: For more than two decades, Ernesto's has been a popular choice for those seeking traditional Mexican food. Live mariachi coupled with a vast selection of tequila make it a good choice for a fun night out with friends --- so expect a wait, especially on weekends. The menu includes favorites such as tacos and burritos, as well as more involved dishes. Specialties include Veracruz shrimp, chile Colorado and enchiladas suizas. The fresh guacamole is some of the best in town, and the carnitas are tender and well spiced. A seat on the relaxing outdoor patio is good for people-watching or throwing back a beer or cocktail on a warm summer night.
