This was by far one of my favorite spots visited on our recent trip. Good, inexpensive eats in an old brothel.

This place is overflowing with character! They are best known for their Soul Burger. You've got to have one! There's always music playing if it's from the juke box or a live band! They say it's haunted! Go and check it out for yourself!!

I give Ernestine & Hazel's four stars for being one of my favorite "Dive" bars in the country. The jukebox has a great song selection, great burgers for last night and a great friendly bar staff that even took us on a ghost tour!
