Another great family gathering with Ernie and his crew. Always a fun place to gather. Menu is limited but everything on it is great. Service is always outstanding. Their Texas style hotdogs with everything is their most popular item but everything is great.

We had breakfast here. We came at the cut off from Breakfast to lunch, but they gave us which ever meal we wanted, (breakfast or lunch) They were very nice people and we enjoyed our food.

Old-school Diner. Seems like a lot of locals eat here. Word to the wise, they stop serving breakfast at 11 am. We ate there twice while visiting Gettysburg. The boyfriend had to go back for the chipped beef on toast

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.
