2 "The best burger I've ever eaten!"

Hey y'all! Thanks for coming back to see what The Paisley Texan has created today.  Let me just start with saying, I didn't physically create today's inspiration for my blog post, but what I'm about to share with you had to be passed along!!!  You have to tell your friends, your friends friends, and your friends friends friends!  It's that good!  {Obviously it's that good by all of the exclamation points used in the last 5 sentences, worth every single one of them!!}

So, Mr. Texan has raved about this amazing burger.  This burger that he says is, "The best burger I've ever eaten!"  That made me curious. Living in Texas, we eat a lot of burgers, and I have to say I don't think I've ever had one that I could call, "The best burger I've ever eaten!"  I mean, my daddy can make a mean burger, Mr. Texan makes a pretty darn good burger, but I can't say that I could pick my favorite out of all of the burger's I've had in my life.  The curiosity was too much to handle.  I knew I was going to have to experience Mr. Texan's "The best burger I've ever eaten!"

Now, I know you are dying to know where Mr. Texan's, "The best burger I've ever eaten!", happens to come from.  Ever heard of Bernie's Burger Bus?  Yeah, me neither, until Mr. Texan came home raving about it, complete with bumper sticker on his car and all.  Yes, to answer your question, because this was my first question, it's actually in an old "yellow dog" {aka yellow school bus}.

Now, playing up on the whole school bus vibe, the menu items all have school related names.  For instance, my husband's favorite burger is the Detention burger.  This burger consists of, "Two applewood smoked bacon grill cheeses used  as the bun, two signature beef patties topped with Texas cheddar, tipsy onions, and  all the fixings." {description taken straight from the website}  Doesn't that just sound like a heart attack on a plate, 2 grilled cheese sandwiches as the buns for the burger, then 2 patties, more cheese and fixins'?  There is no way I would be able to handle that much goodness on a plate.  So, I opted for The Principal, "traditional approach to the classic American burger with mayonnaise, mustard, ketchup, pickle, thin sliced onions, shredded lettuce, and slow roasted garlic tomatoes." {description taken straight from the website} That first bite started off sweet because of that delicious homemade bun, then I got that moist hamburger patty that you could tell was no frozen patty, and then all those fixins' hit you.  It was definitely a burger I'd eat again!

I also tried the Truffle Laced Hand-Cut Fries with Parmesan and Green Onions.  Oh man, those were delicious too.  I couldn't sit there and eat all of them at once, but there were definitely enough to share with Mr. Texan.

Mr. Texan, by the way, branched out this visit and tried the fries with chopped BBQ, Cheddar, chives, and BBQ sauce.  {I couldn't find it on the menu, I think it's new, so I could have left something out.}  These were to die for and served as a meal all on their own.  The meat was perfectly cooked and the fries were perfectly fried.  I have to say, everything from Bernie's was perfectly, perfect.

I know you're wondering, where is Bernie's Burger Bus?  Well one never knows.  The bus is in different places each day.  There is a schedule on their website.  Also, you can follow them on Facebook, or Twitter.  

I know I've got you curious now.  Are you wondering if I could call my Bernie's experience "The best burger I've ever eaten!"?  Well, even though I can be an indecisive person, {That's an entirely different blog post, ask Mr. Texan.  Don't ask me where I want to go eat, that could take longer than getting there, eating, and getting out the door.} I'd have to say that Bernie's Burger Bus is probably one of "The best burgers I've ever eaten!"  {Daddy, I still love your hamburgers, yours ranks up there with Bernie's, I promise ;)}  What helped sell me was the fact that the majority of their ingredients are home made.  From their patties to their buns to their fries.  It's all made from "scratch", so you know you are getting good, quality food, that is oh so delicious and fresh.  We will go back again, I'd love to try a little bit of everything on their menu.  
Now, do yourself a favor, go out and find Bernie's Burger Bus today and give them a try.  You will not walk away disappointed, that is a Paisley Texan promise!!!  {And no, Bernie's has not compensated me in any way to write this post.  I wish I could be that lucky ;)}

I'll leave you with some pictures of the beautiful scenery we had to look at while we ate our amazing food.  We decided to "picnic" at Discovery Green and let the girls play some.  {You don't see our oldest much, because she was all over the place and never stood still long enough for me to get a good shot in.}  Enjoy and stay tuned for what The Paisley Texan Creates next!

Loves and hugs!
