We know you’ve seen the sign, and you’ve been anxiously waiting. Well, the day has finally arrived! Monday, July 31, 2017 is the official opening of Bernie’s Burger Bus in the Heights. Go! Go! Go!
#BrandNewHouston has been a major fan of Bernie’s Burger Bus for over 6 years now. We followed the food truck around the city, and watched the company blossom to its first brick and mortar. Today, they open their third location in the Heights on 2200 Yale St. Houston, Texas 77008. Their other 2 locations are in Bellaire, Texas and Katy, Texas.
Whenever anyone asks us where they can find the BEST burgers in Houston, the answer is quick and fast: Bernie’s! The flavor is undeniable, the ingredients are fresh, and every bite is made with love. Our favorite burgers are… all of them, but we’ll narrow it down for you.
The Homeroom is a single patty cheeseburger with crispy bacon, caramelized onions, chipotle aioli sauce, and a fried egg on top. This burger has literally everything you need, salty, sweet, and saucy.
The Fire Drill brings MAJOR heat as a single patty burger with pepper jack cheese, salsa verde, chipotle aioli, spicy guacamole, slow roasted garlic tomatoes, shredded lettuce, and crispy tortilla chips. A truly amazing burger bringing flavor to heat. This burger is not for the faint of heart!
Lastly, if you’re feeling REALLY hungry, the Detention. This mammoth of a burger is a double patty with crispy bacon grilled cheeses as the buns. Yes, you read that correctly, two entire grilled cheese sandwiches as buns. Between the two grilled cheese’s and the two burger patties is also caramelized onion, and Bernie’s house made ketchup, mustard, and mayonnaise.
Fear not, if you’re not a beefeater, you’re still in luck at Bernie’s because their chicken sandwich is equally delicious, and they have salads to match. On the side, don’t forget their fresh fries – either regular or sweet potatoes. And definitely don’t forget about their ketchup. As mentioned, their condiments are made in-house and as with all their food has a unique trademark taste, but the ketchup has really made their mark. It’s sweet and tangy and absolutely delicious on everything.
As a special Heights exclusive, this new location is the only Bernie’s with a full bar pushing specialty cocktails to go with every burger!!
Take another favorite, The Unicorn Burger (which has a patty made of pork shoulder and pecan smoked bacon, topped with pepper jack cheese, pimento mac and cheese, arugula, garlic roasted tomatoes, and house made mustard on a soft pretzel bun) and pair it with your new favorite cocktail.
Wash it down with either the Ancho Mama’s Pimm made with Pimm’s liqueur, ancho chile liqueur, and fresh lemon juice, or the Watermelon Margerita made with silver tequila, fresh watermelon, Peychaud’s liqueur, fresh lemon juice, and nectar agave.
Now that we’ve given you a quick cheat sheet (Bernie’s pun). You have all the tools you need to get in the new location and have an awesome meal. Bernie’s Burgers is the truth and you’ll be dreaming for more the second you walk out the door!
Stay Trill, Spread Love, and Be The Wave!
