Old Skool Way...

One of my favorite places to eat growing up was a small teriyaki hut just outside of Downtown LA. Spending lots of summers in Hawaii, I was used to eating plate lunch. But at home, there wasn't anything close, except for Bernie's Teriyaki.

Bernie's Teriyaki
Closed on Sundays

The interior really hasn't changed since I was in the 9th Grade

Bernie's is one of those places where the food/recipes hasn't changed in years. It tastes the same as it did back in the late 1970's. The taste and smell reminds me of the church fundraisers in Hawaii selling Huli Huli Chicken, but can't find anything close to it these days.

My Favorite Menu Item

Chicken and Beef Combo


Other things on the menu: teri burgers, teri chicken, wonton soup, and taquitos. But, everyone orders the combo plates. The last time I was there, there was a young couple who read the Yelp review and knew what to order. Guess they didn't know it came with fried rice, because they ordered two sides of the fried rice. It's good, but not that good...

There aren't too many places that you can get Old Skool food anymore. They either don't know how to cook or have no idea how it should be done. Everyone is looking for that type of comfort food. I'm glad that somethings never change and Bernie's Teriyaki is still around...
