Bernards Has Not Changed. I ate at Bernard's when he first opened, then after that once again, then yesterday one more time. The place has changed but the food has not. This not Creole, or Cajun food, this some ninth ward kitchen stuff I swear. I read them other reviews and they must be wrote by some relatives I bet. The food portions is little, cornbread small and dry, boudan is not a link but only about two bites. Service people was very nice but the cooking was not. I don't think you can find real Creole or Cajun here in San Antonio. So If you are hungry and want good Louisiana food this not be the place for you. Bernard is a nice fella but he needs to hire a cook.
Not Authentic Creole~ ; (.
I went to Bernard’s yesterday and was not pleased at all with the food that I ordered. I am from New Orleans and thought I would try out this Creole food that I heard all about here is SA. I ordered the Fried Chicken and I would swear I had a pigeon because of the size of the piece that was on my plate! There was no taste and it was overcooked, it sure was not Popeye’s!!
I also ordered the boudan and it did not come in a casing like the links come in everywhere that I have eaten them before did. Flavor was good but the amount was maybe the size if 2 cigarettes were side by side. Very Disappointing with the Food!
YUM!. Great food. Cant wait for the new location 10/16. Found this place just today, but we will be regulars, no doubt. The food was amazing.
Out of Body Creole Food Experience.
Hurricane Katrina devastated New Orleans, but it did bring Bernard to San Antonio. In a four-table afterthought of a convenience story, Bernard has made his three-walls a New Orleans kitchen hot spot. Enjoy what fate has brought us.
My latest random choices from his list of daily specials was ox tail, chicken smothered in seafood, and waffles and chicken.
At best most folks think of ox tail as a meat for soup. Not here, think fall off the bone tender beef and slow cooked in (I'm guessing) molasses for a sweet and savory food experience.
I'm not a white chicken person, but when cooked just right and smouthered in a blend of seafood with a crab cake pasta salad on the side your taste buds simply sing.
Chicken and Waffles, heard of it, never had it. Glad it was here. The fried chicken wings that were perfect, not greasy, and seasoned just right, served with a sprinkle of powered sugar and herbs, That's good, on good, on good. Now add pancake syrup to seal the deal.
If you blink, you will pass it. The best landmark is the South San Antonio High School across the street. Once you have been there, Bernard's will be the landmark for the high school.
The Fried Chicken is to die for.
As the headline reads.... omg.
The gumbo is very good as well as the cornbread. Been there many times trying all the stuff in the menu.

Best Creole Kitchen in SA. This is my favorite place to get a New Orleans muffaletta! I have searched since the first time we visited New Orleans. I have tried everywhere from chain restaurants to delis but this takes the cake. The food is great and more people need to give this place a try. Bernard the owner is there everyday cooking fresh to your order. Located on the southside of town, you may pass it up, it is a tiny restaurant packed with flavor. If you are heading up from military drive it will be on your right hand side just as you get passed South San high school (there is a light at Navajo street and the restaurant is on the right). The food is great.
Not really Cajun Food. Sorriest excuse for Cajun food in the city and way over priced. If you know good Cajun food, avoid this place.
