Park That Bus: Bernie’s To Open 3 Non-Mobile Locations

Justin Turner of the cheddar-colored, school-themed burger bus — a frequent visitor to the can-you-hear-me-above-the-generators Houston Food Park in East Downtown — tells Eater Houston that he’s planning to open 3 non-wheeled restaurants in the next 5 years. That’s in addition to the stand he set up at Sections 114 and 115 inside Reliant Stadium to cook patties while the Texans play. Bernie’s will still operate 3 buses to serve close-in ’hoods, but it appears that all the restaurants will be outside the Loop: The first to open, says Turner, will be on Bellaire west of 610, the second in Katy, and the third “another place out in the ‘burbs.”

  • Bernie’s is killing it. Well deserved success, all the best of luck to them!

  • Curious and excited to taste their food. I have them catering an event tomorrow, YUM!

  • The food trucks (bus) are fun. But they are a hassle to find.

  • Who cares? It’s a effin burger. And not even one of the better ones.

  • Jack, you obviously don’t know jack!

  • Texmex, I know enough to know that it’s not even in the top 10 of burgers in this city.

  • Bernies makes some great burgers. Good luck to them with the new venture. Fusion Taco, one of Houston’s first well branded food trucks has also made the switch and recently opened a restaurant in Downtown next to Market Square park. Another food “truck”, which is actually a bus, is Good Dog Hot Dogs who is working on a non-mobile location on Studemont, a few blocks from Antidote coffee. All of the trucks make awesome food and I think they’ll do great.
