I work downtown and Ernie's is just a few doors down. I pop in when I just cannot decide what I feel like for lunch. Hand carved turkey or roastbeef are great. Just the other day I was in the mood for tuna and it...More

Once in a while you find a place that is very special. Not because it is fancy or posh, not because it is an "in spot", but because it is just plain good! The food was great, the corned beef & pastrami was great, the...More

Great sandwiches, with all home made meats! You cannot beat the Ernie's sandwiches. All meats are home cooked and carved right in front of you. Combine that with the top hat of Ernie and his big smile,what better lunch could you wish for?

This is the greatest place for a super tasty sandwich with the meat handcarved by Ernie. Very small area for eating in, but great for a take out.

The sanwiches here are some of the best fresh made sanwiches in the area. The chicken salad BLT is a particular favorite that's hard to stray from!

Ernie's has the best sandwich in Rutland. His meats are freshly made right there on the spot. So he doesn't need to 'reheat' your sandwich, it's hot to start. The pastrami with coleslaw on rye is fantastic! It's not thin sliced deli meat, it's handcarved...as...More

Specialy hand carved Sandwiches remind one of the fine New York City eateries of similiar nature. Chef Ernie is delightful and provides a cheery, clean and wonderful environment for dining.
