I've been going to Ernie's since his dad, Charlie ran it. Only place I'd get a hot dog in town. Two with, onions on the side!

You're not going to find a cheap diner with more local authenticity than this place. The food is basic & "nothing to write home about" but the service is fast & friendly. The atmosphere hasn't changed in decades, which gives it a very genuinely vintage...More

Really wanted to like this vintage place but food was very lack luster including fish that my son was certain were from the frozen food section and microwaved...the owner can do much better given the old school ambience and history he projects...

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 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.
