Our experience at Ernie's Texas restored my faith in breakfast in Gettysburg. After a disastrous breakfast has another breakfast place the day before, we finally had a really good breakfast at Ernies. My omelette came out yellow and fluffy (an issue with a previous experience)...More

Ernie's isn't trying to be a fancy joint with unusual breakfast - it's a solid grill joint with good-sized servings at a good price. Our favorite part was the banter between our waitress (Jess?) and her mom (Karen?) who both work there. Breakfast was tasty,...More

Local residents recommended we stop here, and we are so glad that we did. This place looks like something out of a 1950's kitchen, but in a good way! The staff was wonderful, we had our 2 year old grandson with us, and they genuinely...More

We stopped by Ernie's Texas Lunch for a quick breakfast while in town. We got a yummy, hot breakfast for two for $25.00, including tip. Everything was delicious and piping hot when brought out. Highly recommend!

We just stumbled across this pace while walking around. And its a real treat. Feels like it must have years ago when it first opened. And they make a really good burger too.

Friendly staff, food and service were very good. No complains about the place. It is like going back in time, a little, but it was clean and breakfast was very good.

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.
