While visiting Yellowstone National Park for 4 days (arriving on Sept 10th), we stopped into Ernie's one morning for a very local feeling place for breakfast. At first we were amused at the way the place works with ordering and picking up at the front counter. We're flexible so this wasn't an issue--actually enjoying the local flavor of it all. However, after putting in our breakfast order, we noticed after 20 minutes, that people were coming in, ordering take-outs and leaving as we still waited - and waited - and waited. Finally after almost 40 minutes and a handful of others ordering and leaving, we got up, gave the lady behind the counter a dollar for my cup of coffee and we left----------worse service I have ever had and that's saying a lot after 66 yrs ! ! ! ! Maybe they didn't appreciate my Vietnam hat.......I'm still shaking my head over this place......

So we stopped at Ernie's for lunch, the place was packed so we expected to be a little slow, the food was great and the customer service was great but we were there for over 40 minutes or just the sandwich. So overall OK food but just don't go if you're in a hurry or just on lunch.

We got a pecan roll and a breakfast sandwich - both were excellent. However, we had to wait 30 minutes while the breakfast sandwich was prepared. We weren't told when ordering that grill items would take this long and probably would have not chosen to order them as we were trying to get food quickly.

Our hotel clerk recommended Ernie's, and it was a good choice. The "Wrangler" was great - what we've called a "Hole in the Wall" and other names. Ernie's takes it a step further by deep frying the toast cutouts and coating them with sugar. Voila - a couple of small doughnuts with your eggs and bacon! As with truck stops, you can tell Ernie's is good by the many fishing guides who were eating here and getting lunch to go. Not fancy, but give it a try.

We stopped at Ernie's twice to get our "to go" picnic. Fantastic homemade sandwiches, fruit, chips, cookies, candy, and drink for a reasonable price. Yellowstone restaurants close from 2:30 to 5:00, so it was nice to have food available on the road.
