We all had a chicken taco salad. The bowls are so good, deep fried and flaky. The service is very good and the staff was friendly and helpful. The restaurant is not fancy but clean and with such good food, who cares. We would definitely go back if we are ever in the area again.

I can highly recommend this place. We have eaten here on two separate occasions and have enjoyed it very much both times. Prices are reasonable and the quality and portions are more than you expect. This is a great little find.

It's been better previously but this time just mediocre. All 3 dishes we had were very runny. Service was slow even though it was pretty quiet at the time.

We went here based on the Trip Advisor Reviews. What a disappointment! First, the service was slow; we sat at our table waiting for a menu for almost 15 minutes (they were not busy) & waited another 10 minutes for the order to be taken. The food arrived quickly. But, it was all the same beige color! Not even a... More

I had heard that this was the best Mexican restaurant and depending on the tripadvisor ratings, we went to the restaurant. The service was poor, I never did receive the drink I ordered ... was told my the wait staff that she didn't know if they made a Long Island Ice Tea. I pointed out that it was on the... More

I have lived here for 17 years. I always try new Mexican restaurants but none compare to Ernesto's. Service is good. Food is good. I always clean my plate there. Prices quire reasonable. I have not found anything on their menu that I would not recommend. I go there at least once a week. Great place to eat.

Slowly working our way thru all Mexican restaurants in St. George area. This one had the best salsa of any we tried(tasty but devoid of any heat) but did not care for the chips. They are more authentic as they are thicker like you may find in Mexico but I feel that there are 2 things that the Mexicans never... More

We have been to Ernesto's many times through out the years and it was always pretty good. Though this visit yesterday was very mediocre with food, service and cleanliness. They only had one other couple in there and they sat us right next to them at a table that still had not been wiped off or cleaned underneath the table... More

I have been coming here since I was a kid. Love the chips and salsa. I used to have to beg my honey to go out for Mexican until we tried the Mexican shrimp cocktail. We share one before we get our entrees every time. My husband loves the shredded beef tacos. They are fantastic. I love the Chile rellenos.... More
