Super Duper Burgers Opening in the Castro


If all goes according to plan, ~SUPER DUPER~ will be slinging burgers in the former Pasta Pomodoro space in the Castro on Monday April 12th. The menu will feature five kinds of burgers, fries (regular or garlic), shakes, and soft-serve ice cream. The burgers will be cooked on a chrome flat-top grill, available plain (burger with Super Duper secret sauce); with cheddar cheese; Super Duper style (lettuce, tomato, cheese, thin red onions, and house-made pickles), with bacon (supplied by neighbor restaurant Starbelly), or make it a double. A plain burger will be under $4—no word yet what the beef is, however. There will also be a veggie burger and chicken burger. For dessert, the Straus Family Creamery soft-serve ice cream can be whipped into shakes, or served by the cone or cup; or get it with toppings like strawberries and cream.

This fast-casual restaurant will have a retro look and is the latest project from Adriano Paganini (Beretta, Starbelly, Delarosa) and business partners Edmondo Sarti (Starbelly) and Deborah Blum (Beretta, Starbelly, Delarosa). Open 11am-11pm. 2304 Market St. at 16th St., 415-558-8123.
