Ernesto's -- Sacramento -- Really bad

nja | Feb 16, 200411:31 PM

I hereby withdraw any recommendation of Ernesto's. Really bad, overly sweet, artificial tasting margaritas. Sauce on some shredded chicken tasted like it came from a can. Table salsa was made from, no joke, WHITE tomatoes. Bland beans. Bland tortilla soup. Dreadful. I'm embarrased to have ever suggested it as a decent place for typical Mexican combo plate, and I hope nobody has ever had a bad meal due to me.

I had gone out for the night for a few margaritas and some bar snacks. I sat there starting at my uneaten food and unfinished drink and wishing I had simply gone to Centra Cocina instead. If you've seen my posts on them, you may know that I don't like that place too much. But at least they use fresh lime juice in their margaritas and the food is flavorful, even if it's Americanized Mexican.
