I dare you to finish the fat Ernie breakfast burrito. The fat Ernie is basically every option you can get in a breakfast burrito all rolled into one. Taste great, more filling.

The Fat Ernie is the best Breakfast Burrito in Belton, I like mine with extra bacon. It looks like a crazy hole in the wall, but they know what they are doing

It's a hole in the wall, dive joint kind of place! They usually have the best food though! Ernies has been there for as long as I can remember. Go for the Fat Ernie's breakfast burrito. It's big enough for 2 to share.

Told had to get the burrito the fat one. Small hole in the wall place. It's hot and loud with sponge bob on the tv. I order the fattie and only have canned drinks for a buck. The burrito gets here not as big as I was expecting. First bite.......... Need salt! And a lot. Have beans and potatoes that... More

We ordered the 10 piece chicken to take back to our motel and thought it was very good. It was more flavorful than other fried chicken we've had and we enjoyed it for supper and 2 lunches. We'd sure come back again.

I have no clue how their chicken is but their Fat Ernie breakfast burrito is huge and so yummy. Unlike most large burritos, the Fat Ernie is flavorful and not overlay stuffed with egg but compacted with many ingredients. A must try!!

Fat Ernie, need I say more. This is a huge breakfast burrito that is around $4.00 and is amazing, if you haven't tried it you need to.
