We have been going to Ernesto's for years. My favorite is the number 22 combination platter. It comes with beans, rice, tamale and enchilada. They will give you your choice of beef or chicken. My husband always chooses the platter that has the two enchiladas. He will make them beef. We are pretty picky about where we get our mexican meals at and Ernesto's has fresh ingredients and love the waitress Angie over there.

My fondest moment at Ernesto's is every time I walk in for lunch I am greeted by "Welcome back, would you guys like the usual? Two chicken enchiladas and one chicken enchilada, chicken taco?"

Favorite place in St George
Friendly excellent food all around A+
it looks a bit on the cheap side, but pff, when the food is delicious (and also cheap) who cares? it is bland mexican food, but sometimes, that is just what i'm craving. the spice in mexican food is a bit much sometimes.
anyway, ernestos resturant has the most chill, relaxed vibe of any resturants i have ever been to, and that is what keeps me coming back.
plus, the rice is just...mmm....
Also the food is very tasty, I got the chili verde smothered burrito, good stuff!
We moved from St. George almost 2 years ago and we keep trying to find a Mexican restaurant to compare and are always disappointed. When we travel we always arrange our schedule to stop at Ernesto's for a delicious meal.
In st. George there are so many Mexican food restaurants. It's almost overwhelming. I think I've eaten at a good handful of them now. This is definitely one I would return to. The family running the business were all very charming. We never had to ask for a refill or attention of any kind and the food was really good. Everyone at the table left happy. The portions were good and everything was really fresh.

5 stars for Ernesto's Mexican Restaurant. Homemade. Authentic. Just. SO. GOOD!!
After a long day at Zion Nat'l Park, I took to Yelp for a quick sit-down dinner. So glad that Ernesto's won the rock-paper-scissors battle that I had with myself in my head.
We ordered the 5 beef taquito plate as an appetizer. They make everything. The complimentary salsa, chips, and guac!! Absolutely delicious. The taquitos were fresh and the carne was flavorful and tender (the perfect stringy-kind of beef!).
I ordered the "Quesadilla Dinner" with chicken/ served with rice and beans. It was not your typical quesadilla- it was even better!!! It was not pressed on a grill, but I think fried? It was not bready, but the perfect flakiness. A cross between a large, thin empanada and a big version of a fried chicken dumpling. Inside had chicken, cheese, onions, and tomato. Simply divine.
If you're St. George, Utah, you must try Ernesto's if you're in the mood for BOMB Mexican food.

4 stars is because the chips and salsa need improvement and it will be 5 stars.
This place tasted fantastic and had great prices but I couldn't give it 5 stars because the food destroyed my stomach for the following 24 hours. I got the beef enchilada with rice and beans as well as a half order of guac. It was all delicious but about two hours later made my stomach feel awful. Maybe it was just my experience. The service was great.

My favorite are the chile rellenos. My husband is the chimichanga. The chips and salsa are awesome.
