“A good spot for BBQ and Mexican”
Reviewed March 4, 2014

Bert's is an institution in Collinsville. Recently relocated due to road construction. But they maintained the same atmosphere. The BBQ is very good and they a very nice selection of Mexican fare. Reasonably priced, casual dining.

“Great Favorite!”
Reviewed March 4, 2014

This restaurant and the one in Fairview Heights have been around since 1970. The Mexican and BBQ are great. Haven't tried the rest of the menu because I always want the those two items when I come in. You only stay around this long if the food great. Reasonable prices also!

“Hole in the wall of yumminess!”
Reviewed September 6, 2012

Bert's is the best. What a great place for inexpensive great food. I highly recommend the deep fried burrito or the tacos. My husband LOVES the BBQ chicken on Saturday's. Don't miss the fountain soda's with shaved ice and a squirt of cherry. Roger, the owner, is funny, friendly, welcoming and wants to make sure everyone is happy.

“This is place is amazing!”
Reviewed June 14, 2012

Read about this place on Yelp, it's better than I can describe!

We would have thought it was closed on a Saturday afternoon, as the windows are all dark. We would have gone past had it not been for the sandwich board sign on the sidewalk. You walk in through a small lobby and into what looks like an old gymnasium. There were several families around the room but it was QUIET. WHY? Because the food is so good, who has time to talk?

Order at the counter, take a seat and be pleasantly surprised! I got the Mexican platter and it was a beef enchilada, a taco and refried beans and rice. The corn taco shells were thin, thin, thin and crispy, not greasy at all. LOVE THEM! The flavor was excellent. The enchilada was flavorful and fresh. They offer a nice taco sauce on the side. My husband got the nachos and they were gone before I could have a taste.

Next time were trying the b-b-q. And maybe some more Mexican! Now I want to go back to Collinsville, unless they want to open up in the Chicagoland area. We sure could use a great place like this!
