Chef/owner Justin Turner is happy to announce his first brick and mortar restaurant is OPEN!
For a couple of weeks now, Bernie's Burger Bus--the restaurant, not the fleet of burger-flinging school buses roaming the city--has been holding a very quiet soft opening. No announcements were made, but the doors were unlocked, and if you wandered in for a bite, chances are the cooks would take the opportunity to practice and serve you whatever you wanted from the new menu.

Well, now it's official. The first bell has rung, and Bernie's Burger Bus is open for business!

The announcement came via Instagram around noon today, when chef/owner Justin Turner posted a photo with text reading "ROLECALL" and featuring the new restaurant's hours.

When this photo was taken, the space was still under construction, but you can see the bus features prominently in the design.
Should you get a hankering for a burger today that the bus just can't fulfill, head on out to the new digs, where technically you'll still be getting your burger from a bus. Turner had a school bus outfitted to serve as the counter in the restaurant. Other school-themed quirks include desk tables (remember those pesky desks attached to chairs that you had to slide into?) and chalkboard décor.

The new space comes with some new menu items as well. In addition to the juicy beef patties that put Bernie's on the map, diners can order chicken or lamb patties. There's also a salad option, poutine fries (as if those could top the truffle fries) and boozy milkshakes designed by Fluff Bake Bar's Rebecca Masson. And you know what boozy means: Yep, there's a full bar.

The space is sure to be crowded, so get in soon if you want a Bernie's burger in the cool air conditioning for a change.

Bernie's Burger Bus is open Monday through Thursday 11 a.m. to 11 p.m., Friday and Saturday 11 a.m. to 12 a.m. and Sunday 11 a.m. to 9 p.m.

Burger, fries, and Coke for $20. But that includes tax and tip.

It should be ROLL CALL.  And I'm heading there with my Dad and my son this week.  Should be a treat.

They said that about Burger Guys too.  I fail to see the difference.
