This is a very famous place that's been here for a very long time. A real diner with tons of character and history. Stop by for a hot dog and fries.

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

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.
