Been going to restaurant for over 50 years. This is the first time we have been in in over 10 years. The hot dogs have not changed much. The roll seems to have gotten bigger. The dogs and the chili sauce and onions are the...More

My uncle and I visited Ernie's a couple weeks ago and had a great time. The Texas hot dogs were fabulous and the fries were out of sight.

We stopped in for breakfast on a Saturday morning and found Ernie's to be a true diner food place. Nothing fancy, but with good honest breakfast food at a reasonable price. The coffee could be stronger but otherwise no concerns.

We loved this little diner! We ate there two days in a row because of the food and the service! Wonderful atmosphere, our waitresses were fabulous and the food great! I would move to Gettysburg just to eat at this diner everyday.

This is supposed to be a classic "Texas Hot" type of dinner often found in northeaster small towns. It looks the part with small dinner tables, and a malt shop feel. The wiener was terrible. The fries soggy. The chili probably out of a can....More

Whenever we come to Gettysburg my husband and I come in to get a hotdog and fries. They remind us of a hot dog place both of us used to go to as kids. We love this place and will be back when we come...More

We ate breakfast here and the food is like home cooking. Inexpensive. It has an old feel and look to it but clean.

Google "Ernie Texas Gettysburg Menu" and you should find a picture of the menu online. It lists a lot of items other than a hot dog. Items include sandwiches, wraps, salads, soups, sides, and dinner platters.

Hi You would have to rent out the whole place to sit that many people. All they have is counter seating and a few tables. Nothing where everybody could sit together. I would call them and see if they would work with you.
