What a step back in time. Great little diner. Food is good and inexpensive. The help is great. Super friendly and great personalities. We always plan a trip Ernie's when we visit.

We wouldn't go to Gettysburg without stopping at Ernie's for "one with". The hot dogs with chili and onions are wonderful.

A true throwback to a simpler time in America! Reminds me of the eateries you'd see in black and white photos from the 50's of good old main street! Cheap good eats!

This is a cafe. Lunch for four people was only $28. A bargain. Try the Texas hot dog, it's the house specialty. The food was really good and the milk shakes yummy.

Ernie's Texas Lunch is a great place to have an inexpensive lunch. Its traditional diner atmosphere and good food bring back memories of the past. We enjoyed the Texas wieners.

The service was great. It is bare bones and basic breakfast done right. If you are looking for a quick pancake or egg fix this is the place to be.

Tried this cute little place that was off the beaten path for a quick lunch. Nice servers but just average food in this early 1920s luncheonette.

Prompt service. Waitresses was very effective at giving us the best deal for our desired items. I found some things on the Taco Dog lacking. Shredded cheese would be good. But overall great family experience but it was Gburg prices.

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.
