Great fast-food burgers with a 'slow-food' mindset

Super Duper burgers are pretty darn tootin' super duper. We popped in to their 721 Market St location for lunch as we were feeling like burgers and thought we'd give these supposedly super ones a go.

The layout at Super Duper is good with plenty of seats, although they were really busy as it was right on lunchtime when we got there, so there weren't too many that were available. We managed to snag some just as we were ordering which was lucky.

I got the veggie burger that comes with the veggie patty, super sauce, hummus, and cucumber and I added tomato, lettuce and fried onion for free. There are two lists of things you can add to your burger; one list is for free things and the other lists items that will cost you a dollar extra each one. The extra cost items included free range egg, bacon, avocado and cheese. The freebies are lettuce, tomato, red onion, jalapenos, fried onion, super sauce, pickles.

The ordering is really simple even on a first visit: pick your burger type; beef, chicken or veg, pick your additions, make it a combo with a drink and fries if you want and voilà. Collect your buzzer and find yourself a seat.

They also had delicious sounding shakes and organic soft serve on offer but I resisted the urge.

When the buzzer went off and we collected our burgers the meaty one my boyfriend had ordered was overflowing with cheese and sauce out the edge. Mine looked really tasty and delicious too. We got the fries to share and he had the drink from his combo.

The buns are delicious and are toasted too. I did enjoy the burger but by the time I'd finished I had a feeling of slight salt overload. Rather than the creamy super sauce I think it really could've used a sweeter sauce to cut through the salt. The veg patty itself was pretty good – not super greasy but a little bit to feel like I was having a real burger and not leave my burger craving unfulfilled. Overall it was a pretty good burger.

My boyfriend's burger looked ready to explode with all of the stuff inside it. The menu advises that their burgers are cooked medium and are juicy and that eating them could prove messy and they are absolutely correct with the meaty ones.

They seem very proud of their home-made pickles with signs hanging on the wall to tell you about them.

The lights also kind of reminded me of some sort of alien-helmet or U.F.O. Basically, the whole place has a much classier vibe than you'd usually expect at a burger joint.

There was a wooden cow on the wall next to us that I couldn't resist taking a quick snap of as we ate. Super Duper claim to have slow food values even though they're making fast food and after tasting the burgers I can't disagree with that.

The packaging is also fully-compostible at Super Duper. Some other fast-food restaurants could really learn a thing or two from that.

I would most certainly visit again if I had a burger eating urge.
