Good place for a quick lunch. Service was very good. Some of our party enjoyed the gravy fries and the burgers were hand patted.

Usually fast service; consistently good food for any meal. Hard to pass up those hot dogs - with or plain. Best french fries in town.

YUM! Love this place! It's just about 1/2-1 block off of the square. Very cute diner and yummy food. It's not high-end, but then the name of the place is "Ernie's Texas Lunch"! Friendly staff and a great place to grab a burger and fries!

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.

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.

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...More

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.

Hi, Would there be seating available for 10-15 for a Sunday brunch in July?

Hi You would have to rent out the whole place to sit that many people. All they have is counter seating and a few tables. Nothing where everybody could sit together. I would call them and see if they would work with you.
