Great little local restaurant where you can sit in a booth or at the counter. Great hot dogs with most anything you want on them, but my fave is their BLT! Their menu is American which includes cheese fries, hamburgers, sandwiches, etc. Good, friendly service and good prices.

Ernie's reminds me of a 1950s diner, quaint and old fashioned. Their hot dogs are the real thing. They crunch when you bite them. Try their fries and gravy too! Great service and great prices too.

I have eaten at Ernie's before and very much appreciate the ambiance. It is very unique, where they still cook their food right in the front window. Cool place and friendly people. Wish I could speak better about my hot dogs. Got the Texas wiener. For my taste it was burned, I mean burned with a burned taste to it.... More

Our experience at Ernie's Texas restored my faith in breakfast in Gettysburg. After a disastrous breakfast has another breakfast place the day before, we finally had a really good breakfast at Ernies. My omelette came out yellow and fluffy (an issue with a previous experience) and it was very tasty. All the food was good and the service was stellar.... More

Enjoyed a great lunch here last week, during a road trip with my son. Food and service were great and would like to go back again!

We stopped for breakfast because the bakery next door was closed and I am so happy we did. The food was amazing and the service was excellent. We never had to look for our waitress, she anticipated our every need. I can't wait to come back again.

Can't complain about the food. It was great food at a great price. Has an old diner feel for sure and the staff are wonderful. Will definitely return for more food

Ernie's isn't trying to be a fancy joint with unusual breakfast - it's a solid grill joint with good-sized servings at a good price. Our favorite part was the banter between our waitress (Jess?) and her mom (Karen?) who both work there. Breakfast was tasty, quick and fun.

Thank splendidcheddar
