Going to this restaurant was extremly special and brought back a lot of memories. I had never been there before so let me explain. My husband and I moved from Santa Barbara a few months ago and for our first date, celebrations, and our dinner before the wedding fro the wedding party we went there. The restaurant in Santa Barbara is named Carlitos and we had many many wonderful memories there, not to mention the best Mexican food I have ever had (and mexican food is my favorite so I've been to a lot of places). I didn't think I would ever find another place like that moving to Sacramento. Santa Barbara is known for their beaches of course, and State Street, but also for their restaurants. Living in Elk Grove, I have to branch out to find real restaurants because this town is made up of chains. Thank you Ernesto's for being our new place for many memories to come. I had fish tacos (the Mexican street tacos) and they were amazing. My husband has gotten the carnitas before and said they were wonderful, however the enchiladas I will past on in the future. Oh yea, and their salsa is so fresh and my husband and I ate the whole bowl they offered to us. I hope to try their quac in the future!
Absolutely was needed to have a full service Indo-Pak restaurant like this. Amazing back home food taste with amazing cultural decor that made us feel we were traveling elsewhere. Some desi people were sitting next to us complaining about how long it takes and they think they were at a fast food.lol. People are not used to having a sit down restaurant like this so they act silly and it is new for them and they need to wake up because my family and I ate greatful to now have found a place to go as an outing to take pics at and enjoy food. They have a banquet hall for 150-200 people too I believe and I went to an event where they did catering and that is how I found out about them. I guess they are new in town...all I know this is a 5 star restaurant and they will probably have people waiting soon just to be seated. About time we get a nice desi restaurant with amazing food.
I wasn't planning to buy lunch but a homeless, hungry, diabetic man asked for some food and not cash. I went to El Faro across the way and spoke to the owner Hugo about the situation and asked him to pay for half the meal for the hungry guy and I would pay for half and by myself a meal for his kindness in helping out. Hugo said I did not need to buy myself a meal and he bought the guy some healthy food that would not hinder blood sugar issues. I went ahead and bought myself a burrito as a good will/thank you gesture which was out of this world. Excellent seasoning, tender chicken, great proportions. I will now be a regular supporter b/c of the owner's good deed and b/c the food and service are excellent. Please show your support for El Faro and Hugo, we need more like this to help out those who for whatever reason have lost their way!
