I have been going to Bert's since I was kid, riding my bike to the old A-frame location by P&P. I have always stuck to the tacos (I crush them up and make a taco salad!), the enchiladas, and the burgers. I used to really dig the deep fried chimichangas but my doctor won't let me go near them now.... More

Went there for lunch and ordered the bbq nachos and onion rings while my wife had the pork steak and potato salad. All of it was delicious.

Plenty of space in this establishment with tables dispersed in two large rooms, menu is varied with everything from tacos, burgers, Italian beef, bbq and lots of sides to go along. I had the Italian beef and was disappointed with the bread/bun, but the meat was flavorful with the added cheese. If they had used a genuine italian roll, it... More

Cheap eats and good food. Flavors haven't changed since I went to Bert's as a kid. Love the tacos and get them every time I go.

My family loves to eat here. There is a wide variety of choices that suites even my picky 12 year old. The staff are always friendly and the food comes out very quickly.

A little hard to find and the pic we saw on the web was not their current building. But once there we were so glad we found it! Even though web sites classify it Mexican cuisine, they serve just as many burger and bbq selections. At the counter inside we ordered their Friday lunch special burger and hand batter-dipped onion... More

This restaurant is a Collinsville institution. If you are hungry and not sure what you are looking for, you'll find something you like on their menu. The service is fast. The main complaint is that the establishment always seems dirty and greasy. The front of the building needs some updating. Inside the front window area, it looks like a garage... More

Great reviews on web site. Plugged address into GPS and drove to area twice. No restaurant. Had to end up at Dairy Queen.
