Bernie's Burger Bus has been serving old school burger awesomeness since 2010. Bernie is everywhere. Now there is one place where we will always find Bernie - in Bellaire! Preparing for their April storefront opening in the Bellaire Triangle, Bernie set their Burger Bus up in the parking lot this past weekend, and plan to be there each weekend going forward until opening. So, of course, I gathered up friends, neighbors and pets to join me for a Bernie's Burger.
My burger of choice - The Principal. I did it simple, as I really wanted to sample and taste the flavor of Bernie's meat. Burger with lettuce, onions, and light mayo. The burger, handcrafted from scratch with no preservatives, is angus beef. The buns are made fresh daily (I could definitely taste the freshness).
My take on the burger - very good. The meat was juicy and flavorful, cooked exactly to my order of medium. The bun was light, with a hint of sweetness, that did not overpower the burger. Do I wish for a little more taste in the bun, yes. But, that's my only gripe. The rest of the group concurred - this was a great burger, and we are all excited to welcome Bernie's to the neighborhood. One friend joining me said he thinks Bernie will give another Bellaire favorite, Bellaire Broiler Burger, some real competition with better hours and better food! Hmmmmmm...
Josh Tucker, Director of Operations for Bernie's, sat with us telling us more about their burger, their commitment to the community, and their excitement about opening up in Bellaire. And, since all of their condiments are homemade, we each got nice bottles of their hand-made "Small Batch Ketchup" and Chipolte Aioli to take home. Bernie's is welcome in my house anytime, and we want Bernie to stick around for the long haul. Welcome to Bellaire!!!
Cheers to Eating More Burgers!
