Famous locally, Ernie's is one of those places you'll never forget. Fast, friendly, not to mention the BEST sandwiches this side of anywhere. Actually, the word sandwich doesn't do them justice. They're more like "creations" that have to be experienced to be appreciated.

You've got to try one of Ernie'.s hand made sandwiches I/ve been at least 4 times. Great time but sometimes there's a bit of a wait.

Oh man, Ernie can make a sandwich!!! This place is one of those "must try" local shops. There is just something about freshly sliced meats, spices, and a good attitude that makes this deli shop unique. Just remember to bring your appetite when you visit.

Ernie makes the best sandwich ever at a great price. It’s stacked to the ceiling and served with love. Expect a long wait, but it’s well worth it.

Ernie is an experience unto himself! He passes out Hershey kisses, slices your meat to order, stacks it high, then spices it with "Love". You must check this place out

Ernie is the best! Warm, funny, personable, and takes the time to talk to every single patron despite the usual long line to order. Of course, his sandwiches are out of this world! - and priced like it's 1970. If you're ever in the area,...More
