What a great little place. Typical diner food. I had a Patty Meltand onion rings. The onion rings were handmade. You can get a beer with your lunch. Have a great bunch of people working there. Well worth the stop for a lunch.

My wife and I eat breakfast here at least once every trip to Gettysburg. You can expect typical diner breakfast fare, coupled with friendly service. Ernie's is also known for the retired waitresses who are often present. These delightful "former" employees frequently pitch in and endear themselves to the customers.

While in Gettysburg for a conference we had someone recommend Ernie's for a quick little lunch. What a great little place for a quick burger! If you are in a rush and what a good little burger and a friendly staff, this is the place to go. Plus, the prices are excellent!!! We ended up going back more than once... More

Nice little diner just west of the square. The service is friendly and fast. Not to mention food is good and inexpensive. Just wished the home fries were cooked more crispy as requested.

My grandfather made his fortune selling hot dogs. This place is the closest I've come to his. Very relaxed atmosphere, and friendly staff. Jess is the best damn hot dog maker this side of the Mississippi. Will return again and again.
