Came to this part of town with the intent of going to Food 101 for lunch. Too long of a wait there and we saw Ernie's Texas Lunch across the street. The hot dog is exceptional and the service was the same!

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.
