Fodor's Expert Review Ernesto's Mexican Food
Customers often have to wait for a table on Friday and Saturday evenings at this traditional Mexican restaurant that's a reliably good bet for shrimp Veracruz, pork carnitas, chile colorado (steak in ancho-and-pasilla-chili sauce), and the red-pepper-and-cucumber El Cotorro margarita. Sister restaurant Zocalo (1801 Capitol Ave., 916/441–0303) has an indoor-outdoor dining space and is a popular launching spot for nights out on the town.
