Great people and food!

Our waitress was incredibly friendly and kind, and the food was very good as well. The restaurant was a little run-down and there were lots of flies, however.

This place is one of those good old neighborhood hotdog joints started by their grandparents decades ago. Great chili dogs; enjoyed their BLT. Good for an inexpensive and lighter lunch or dinner; a short walk from our downtown hotel. Friendly waitresses.

Cute place but it is a lunch spot for sure. We stopped for dinner and ordered one with! Yes that's it one with! It has onions, mustard, and chili sauce. We also had French fries. The waitress pointed out a special that we could try which was a little less expensive. It was a good hot dog, and fries. We... 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.
