When I first came upon this place, at first glance, I thought it wasn't going to be that good, it was not full at all, and it was a tiny place, and it was a little bit off of the busy area of town, but after going in, I realized the staff was super friendly, and quick, but my fiancee... read more

Although I'm notorious for not liking hot dogs, after seeing the reviews of Ernie's I absolutely had to try one - and thank God I did. This has become my regular lunch stop; their hot dogs are actually really, really good! The staff are all friendly and helpful and it's a really cheap, quick eat.

I love this place to the point where I make it a must stop when I go to Gettysburg. The Texas Dogs I ordered is frankfurter excellence. Add to that mustard, onions, and chili and you've got a great combination. The French fries were cooked to perfection and very tasty. Its not a very big place, but I never eat... More

Love this place! The nicest people work here! The prices are good and the food is wonderful! My kids love it because there is nothing to make kids happier than hot dogs and such. Wonderful service. I am see why they have been here so long and hopefully will remain for many more years

Ernie's is an institution in Gettysburg and has been there over 40 years. The food is simple American fare but it is famous for the succulent hot dogs served with just about anything you could want on them. Great breakfasts also.

I have been in and out of this place over the last 20 years. It has been around since the 1930's. Small town café atmosphere with good food. I really love their Chili Dogs!

We inquired at our hotel about out of hotel breakfast options. This was one of two that the hotel gave us. Since we had walked by the night before and thought it looked nice, we ventured their way for dinner. We were not disappointed. Their choices, while nothing wild, were excellent. I had a great egg sandwich which was a... More
