He plans to close his business at 136th and Q Streets on April 19 after nearly 45 years, two years before he planned to retire, saying his landlord is making it too expensive to operate the restaurant.

I have never been there, but it looks like a good place and it has pretty good reviews online.

What is everyone's opinion of the food? I am wanting to try it before they close.


I have ate there 9 or 10 times over the past 20 years. I don't give it a thumbs up but its not a thumbs down either. Its alright pizza that there is definitely nothing to brag about. The sauce is not especially tasty and they do not pile on the toppings. The décor in the place is pretty rough. The article said that Bernie only pays 1000 a month rent and hes closing because they tried to raise rent to 2000. $1000 a month rent wont get you a shed out here in Millard. I always wondered how Bernie was making it considering the place is always dead and hes only open at night. So theres my answer (the rents only 1000) and the whole thing was a hobby at best. If Bernie was lucky he made the thousand a month rent and enough to pay his couple of employees. Bernie wasn't making nothing himself. Godfathers is right up the street and a few notches tastier.

I'll agree it was not amazing pizza, but it wasn't gross either. There was something kind of cool stepping into a place that hadn't changed decor wise in 40+ years.

The last time I went there it was still the husband and wife working and some younger help, I didn't order a beer but I could have sworn it cost 95 cents.

Must be a Millard thing because I swear the "Duck Inn" or "Picolos Bar" also had 95 cent beers.

By the way, the Duck Inn is one of my favorite bar names. Not sure why, but I like it.

Yeah it's right up there with the Dew Drop Inn which is (maybe was) in Tekamah.
My son got a 27 on his ACT. No this score is not as high as what Jeff's son achieved. But one has to remember the paternal gene-pool my son has to overcome. On a PGPAB [Paternal Gene-Pool Adjusted Basis], my son's score is a 37 and Jeff's son's PGPAB ACT score is 19.

I went to the Dairy Queen next to Bernies on Saturday night for a malt. It looked like they had a pretty good turnout over at Bernies for the funeral.
