Came to this part of town with the intent of going to Food 101 for lunch. Too long of a wait there and we saw Ernie's Texas Lunch across the street. The hot dog is exceptional and the service was the same!

Great little local restaurant where you can sit in a booth or at the counter. Great hot dogs with most anything you want on them, but my fave is their BLT! Their menu is American which includes cheese fries, hamburgers, sandwiches, etc. Good, friendly service...More

Ernie's reminds me of a 1950s diner, quaint and old fashioned. Their hot dogs are the real thing. They crunch when you bite them. Try their fries and gravy too! Great service and great prices too.

I have eaten at Ernie's before and very much appreciate the ambiance. It is very unique, where they still cook their food right in the front window. Cool place and friendly people. Wish I could speak better about my hot dogs. Got the Texas wiener....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 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.
