This place has been there my whole life. Great little lunch stop. Hot dogs,hamburgers, regular lunch stop foods. Serves beer and has a few desserts. I always go when I'm in the mood for a chesseburger with everything. Local people love this place and it should always be a stop for vactioners.

We chose to eat lunch at Ernie's on our trip to Gettysburg. It's not fancy by any means, but the food was great! It's an old fashioned hotdog lunch counter. But, they have other things besides hotdogs on the menu and it's a very affordable lunch. "One with" is the way you order their signature hotdog which is really quite... More

My husband and I planned to eat lunch at the Blue Parrot Bistro down the street but it was not open (a Mon.). A clerk at 7-Eleven recommended Ernie's Texas Lunch ( said it was her mom's favorite place to eat). I ordered the featured Texas hot dog and it was NOT good! I don't know if it was the... More

An old fashioned, not fancy, eating place with outstanding food and very nice people with very reasonable prices. Located downtown, so depending on time of day, parking might be tricky, but it is worth circling the block until you find a place to park.

I come to Gettysburg at least once a year and have to stop at Ernie's for lunch every time. The hot dogs, the atmosphere, and the old fashioned ambience are great. I love the family tradition of quality and good service. Any place that can stay in business for as long as Ernie's in this day and age of cookie... More

Great diner atmosphere, and clearly popular with the locals--but the Texas chili dogs were just so-so (dogs were ok; the chili wasn't good) and the hot ham & cheese sandwich was kind of flabby--It would have been a lot better if they'd grilled the roll.
