Editorial review from Citysearch 12/12/2012

If you've got a big appetite, order the Skylab burito. It comes standard with shredded beef, but it's much tastier with carne asada. Deeeeee-lish! more

Editorial review from Citysearch 11/28/2012

Fantastic food and amazing customer service! We asked if they would stay open for us as closing time was soon and the guy said for sure. We were greeted happily and served promptly. At no point did we feel rushed to leave but were encouraged to enjoy our meals. As out-of-towners, we will definitely recommend and want to come back to Ernie's! Delicious margaritas!! more

First visit 9/24/2008

A buddy of mine mentioned that I had to try the burritos at this restaurant and even though it's not exactly around the corner from me, I went for the first time last weekend. Have to admit their largest burrito was not only good, it was GREAT. Will definitely be making another trip soon. Pros: BURRITOS Cons: there's only one in LA... they need a chain more

Good old-fashioned Mexican Restaurant 7/6/2008

The charm to this place is definitely the old feel ... the minute you step inside, it's a different time era. A restaurant that has been established for 50 years needs little explanation to why it's still there -it's just plain good. Margaritas are make your mouth water, not to mention the addictive chips & salsa. Not too many people know about their delicious hamburgers, YES, I said hamburgers... once you try them, you'll never go back. But definitely, the skylab burrito is where it's at. Few restaurants have that ""mom and pop"" feel, and this place has managed to retain it, which keeps attracting customers like myself. Pros: Good food, margaritas, old-fashion, authentic more

Best ""Old School"" Mexican Around 1/17/2008

I have tried a lot of the ""old school"" Mexican places in town, and Ernie's is about the best. The food isn't the most healty but it sure tastes good. I have enjoyed everything I have had, from the delicious albondigas soup, to the just-right rice and beans and terrific tacos and taquitos. At first I thought this place was a dive but the decor has grown on me over the years. It's old, but it has authentic atmosphere (unlike so many places these days.) The service is always good and the prices are fair. I do agree with another reviewer's opinion of the solo piano player - not right for a Mexican place and often downright annoying. FYI, he is only there on Sunday evenings and I usually avoid going for that reason. They have tradiotnal Mexican music on Friday and Saturday nights which is nice. Pros: Good food, fair prices, usually no wait more

Good Food, abominable entertainment 4/28/2007

Ate here for the first time, food was tasty, drinks were good. The music was AWFUL. They had a live musician playing American standards, ""Imagine"" by John Lennon, ""I Like You Just the Way You Are"" by Billy Joel and so on. Why would a Mexican restaurant steep in traditon including staff, decor and food, host a 1-person band that in 4 notes or less, destroys the experience. Definitely recommend restaurant for easy local dining. Be sure to call ahead to see if the ""band"" is playing. If so, avoid. Pros: authentic Mexican food Cons: the music more

BEST POTATO TACOS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! 9/28/2006

Before I came to Ernie's I thought my days of eating tacos were over,since I Became a vegetarian, but then I saw tacos de papas!!!I asked the waiter what is this??He said potato tacos...I was in heaven from that day on. The tacos de papa are hard shelled with a mixture of potatoes and onions and seasonings, then topped with cheese lettuce and salsa, comes with rice and beans.BEST TACOS EVER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!I have been to a couple other mexican spots that have these tacos but the taste is always bland...they also have great service, never had to wait more than 5 mins even on a busy night.they are very helpful and will suggest somet hing for you if your are not sure of what you want. they have great drinks and other food items husband loves the gringo special, which is crabmeat enchiladas with a green sauce...MMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMM GOOD!!!!ENJOY!! Pros: potato tacos, service, free parking in lot more

Never a wait and never trendy! 2/21/2005

This place gets to be crowded on typical Friday or Saturday nights, but never have I had to wait more than 10 minutes. They somehow always take you in!!! The gentleman that OPENS THE DOOR FOR YOU is just the cherry on top. Where else will you find that sort of service... only at a family owned restaurant. Very friendly place but not too trendy! Pros: never a wait, killer tacos, very friendly more

hot stuff! 1/24/2005

everyone has to try the salsa, chips along with a frozen margarita. what a killer combo... i attended the school across the street and every Sunday we'd have brunch here. It's still a tradition in my family and as long as the food stays as it is, it always will be. good stuff! Pros: great food, amazing margaritas more

Great for special events 1/11/2005

We recently celebrated my daughter's wedding reception at Ernie's and the service was great. The nice lady in the front was able to work out a special menu for our guests (vegetarians included). They set up their main banquet room the way we had asked to be decorated, with white table clothes and burgundy napkins and fresh flowers at every table- very classy. They appointed two servers to our party and both were extremely attentive and friendly. The margaritas were amazing, not too strong but the right about of tequila. Their fajitas fed our party of 80 and the ambience makes you feel like you're at home. I would highly recommend this place for your special events. Pros: Good food, Attentive servers, Good prices more

The Best 12/21/2002

This place is great! They have the best salsa I've ever had at a restaurant, watch out it has a kick! Burritos are huge, tacos are great, also try the rice. more

Good food. Bad waiter 7/12/2002

Good food. Bad waiter. I have going there often for several months, but seem to get the same waiter who has a condscending attitude. This is not a real fancy place and we do leave good tips - so why the bad treatment? One time he was gone for such a long time I had to ask another waiter for some service and my check in order to get out of there. Last time we were there with our elderly parent, he made some snide remark. He must have an attitude about older people. Every time I go in I feel uncomfortable so havent been there for some time. This waiter is giving this restaurant a bad reputation - too bad, because the food is good. Pros: food Cons: service more
