by Mila Besich, Mayor, Town of Superior
As spring turns into summer, time spent outdoors tends to shift to evening activities, and Superior is a great place to enjoy a meal at one of our local restaurants, especially those with great patios!
Superior restaurants offer Mexican food, Italian food including a variety of pizza places, Asian food, barbecue, plus your all-American fare of burgers, soups and pub food. And, don’t forget those delectable blue plate specials in our cozy downtown diner.
As Mayor, a hard question to answer: “Where is the best place to eat or hang out?” Superior offers something for every palate. Some favorites:
Buckboard Restaurant — Best stop for breakfast and tortilla soup.
Bruzzi Vineyard — Vidal Blanc wine; order a bottle to go for your picnic or enjoy a glass of wine before dining out.
Casa Dona Lola — Breakfast burritos. (Beware: they are huge!)
DeMarcos Italian Restaurant — Classic spaghetti and meatballs.
Edwardos Pizzeria — Grilled chicken salad or veggie pizza.
Estillo Sonora — This new food truck has the best Birria tacos; located on Sonora Street.
Farmer’s Market — Fried chicken or chicken tenders (great for picnics at our parks or on the trail).
Farm to Fantastic Market — Saturdays only; stop by to find farm fresh produce, eggs, honey, jelly and the famous Brickhouse Bakers Bread.
Felicia’s Ice Cream — Cinnamon Milk Sno Cone Blast, or the Brisket and Bean only served on Saturdays.
