Age Appropriate: 5 and up
Hi, I’m Juliette! My husband, my 7-year-old and I love going out to eat and we are sharing our restaurant finds with you.
My husband is taking the review into his own hands this week as he and our son went out and tried a new place for you: Bernie’s Burger Bus in Bellaire .
For some reason – and I don’t know if this is accurate or not – the one food truck that sticks out in my mind as the one that started the food truck craze here in Houston is Bernie’s Burger Bus. The concept that it would tweet its location to its subscribers so they could drive out and get a Bernie’s burger was such a novel concept.
The fact that it could have prime real estate every night of the week for a fraction of what it would cost to have a brick and mortar store just felt like borderline genius. The fact that people would stand in line outside in the middle of the summer was just proof they had something going on.
The restaurant is casual with a bar area, tables, booths, and picnic tables outside. They actually had a school bus inside which I think may have been the kitchen – didn’t really look. One oddity was the AC duct hanging from the ceiling was some kind of plastic-like cloth material. It hung flat when the AC wasn’t on, but when the AC turned on it inflated like a snake – pretty cool.
See you next week for another culinary adventure!
