Bernie’s Burger Bus
It’s a very rare thing to see people looking excited while waiting in line outside a school bus. But rather than whisk disgruntled kids to school, this bus is staying parked long enough to serve up old school burgers and fries made entirely from scratch. Each of the burgers––which bear school-appropriate names like the study hall, the subsitute, and the homeroom––is made using a blend of three cuts of black angus beef, before being topped with ingredients like homemade ketchup, pickles, and thick-cut bacon, and placed between freshly baked buns. The study hall sizzles with slow-braised pork belly, Spanish onions, and homemade BBQ sauce, while the substitute swaps everyday lettuce and tomato for bleu cheese, bacon, burgundy-laced mushrooms, and caramelized onions. Of course, even diners with perfect attendance like to shake up their lunchtime routine now and again, and so Chef Bernie creates a globally-inspired daily special, the field trip, which might feature anything from German pretzels and mustard to spicy Mexican guacamole. Thanks to its from-scratch philosophy, Bernie’s Burger Bus has won numerous awards, including the title of best food truck from the My Table Culinary Awards, and "best burger" from the Houston Press. But there's another list earning even more buzz at Bernie's: the detention list. Customers who order Bernie's detention burger––two angus beef patties sandwiched between two applewood bacon grilled cheese sandwiches, and topped with crispy onions, cheddar, and all the fixings––are rewarded with a spot on Bernie's prestigious detention list, only if they finish the mammoth mess or smash it in into a locker.
