Best

I had never had a berrock until I moved to Fresno. The berrocks here are very good. If you are on a low carb diet just eat the filling. I have gotten just the filling to take home.

Take it from a consumate Bierock aficionado! 10/17/2008

Bierocks (the correct spelling, by the way) are of German-Prussian, or Prussian-German (you say potato, I say spud) origin. I grew up in Russell, Kansas, which has a large G-P influence. More importantly, Russell had Simpson?s Bakery, makers of the largest and finest bierocks on the planet. As a teenager, I consumed more than my fair share of these 1-pound gut-busting delicacies. Why is all of this significant to this writing? The Berrock Shop caused the most vivid flashback of my life! Their bierocks, save for the size and price, were so close to Simpson?s bierocks, I was stunned! I?ve tried several bierocks from numerous bakeries, festivals and fairs, but they never really compared to those of my youth. The Berrock Shop filled this void in splendid fashion. Their other fares, salads and deserts are of equal quality, which explains the standing room only situation at lunchtime.\r \r The only differences between my homemade bierocks and those from the Berrock Shop are size more

  • The Berrock Shop began in 1977 when two ladies with a great berrock recipe opened a restaurant at the corner of Clinton & Weber in Fresno, California. It was a small sandwich shop...just a hole in the wall, really. They served their specialty, ground beef and cabbage berrocks, plus a variety of sandwiches, a few homemade deli salads, and a daily soup. They did a respectable business from their little shop, but as the years went on and they got older, the work became more than they wanted to commit to and in 1989, they decided to retire and sell their business to a young couple who were first time entrepreneurs. The ladies taught us how to make their famous berrocks...working along side us for a week or so to make sure we were ready to carry on the tradition, and finally, the torch was passed in October of 1989. We brought to this business a strong work ethic and a vision...We would create a place where the food was the focus. Everything had to be absolutely made from scratch like you would at home...in small batches each day. Real food made by real people, not machines...where the mixing and prepping are done by hand and where you would use only quality ingredients. The world was moving faster, but we wanted a simple place, quiet atmosphere with the best comfort food...nothing fancy or trendy...just good, wholesome food reminiscent of years gone by. The berrocks were our specialty, of course, and over time, we began to introduce other varieties. We were the first in our area to do this. Our first new variety was the shredded beef berrock, made with lean roast that is actually shred by hand. The barbeque beef and Mexican berrocks followed, along with the breakfast berrocks and the hors d'oeuvre berrocks which are so popular for entertaining. Since our berrocks are all hand made, not machine made, we are able to customize them in size and variety. Our first year was full of menu improvements. We began making our own bread for the burgers and sandwiches, made homemade soups rather than serving canned, and expanded the deli salads with the addition of pasta, bean and rice pudding. Soon our famous chicken pot pies were introduced, and they quickly became a permanent menu item. We baked our own cookies which are actually old family recipes and offered fruit pies and turnovers with our delicious flaky crust.
