The onion rings proved to be too thickly breaded and not crispy enough.

The staff wears masks but no gloves at the Fourth Street location. They are extremely friendly and helpful but five minutes late with the order, which is bagged with the burger wrapped in signature checkered paper inside an eco-friendly cardboard take-out container.

The Cheese Superburger is solid — not too big, not too small, with just enough barbecue sauce to make it messy — and lettuce, tomato, onions and pickles stacked on the side. The onion rings cool quickly in transport and are thickly breaded and not crunchy. Best to eat hot upon pickup. The vanilla shake is thick, cold and made from real ice cream; something to remember.

Superburger serves up a solid, messy meal. It’s not the best burger in town, but it maintains its place as a reliable go-to with five Sonoma County locations.
