My favorite is the chicken sandwich. It is so tasty! Every time we go here I get the chicken sandwich, my sister gets the hamburger melt and my nephew gets skinned dogs. The hot dogs are very tasty too!

We recently visited Ernie’s for breakfast and had a very nice time and meal. This is a great local lunch counter with good food and reasonable prices. We had eggs, bacon, home fries, toast and coffee - $12.00 for two people was very reasonable. Our service was very friendly, down to earth and efficient. Everything was clean and looked to... More

Absolutely the best breakfast in Gettysburg. Real potatoes and always hot. It's where the locals go-always a good sign. Great staff, great service-- a throwback to the days of true Diners! And my grandson loves their hot dogs!

My son and I dropped in here for a quick bite. Sat at the counter which was fun. The shop is like stepping back into the 50's. Service was friendly and fast. My chili dog and fries were wonderful. Will definitely come back!

We loved this family owned spot! Ate fries, hot dogs, grilled cheeses and a chicken sandwich and drinks for less than $15. Everything was tasty and we loved the story behind the making of the business. We will go again next time we are in Gettysburg.
