Ernie's is an institution in Gettysburg and has been there over 40 years. The food is simple American fare but it is famous for the succulent hot dogs served with just about anything you could want on them. Great breakfasts also.

I have been in and out of this place over the last 20 years. It has been around since the 1930's. Small town café atmosphere with good food. I really love their Chili Dogs!

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.
