Located at 1812 Winchester Road, Suite A, Supper Heroes is a restaurant made with the comic book fan in mind. The walls are covered with classic comics from both Marvel and DC as well as independent publishers. With menu items priced between $8 and $10, a family can have a fun dining experience and stay on budget. They are open Tuesday through Saturday from 10:30 a.m. until 8:30 p.m. and Sunday 10:30 a.m. until 2:30 p.m.
The dining experience begins when you walk in the door and are greeted by the hostess who might be wearing a Spider-Woman T-shirt or in a Supergirl costume. Once you’re seated at your table, you can spend the few short minutes before your server arrives in a review of your tabletop which is covered with images from the comics. Our table featured images of Hulk, the Golden Age Hawkman, Nick Fury, Wonder Woman, and countless others. If your table isn’t enough to entertain you, the big screen TV in the main room runs super hero blockbusters; the day my party went “The Avengers” was playing.
My party and I visited during the restaurant’s fundraiser for Autism Awareness. The day’s events featured Ghostbusters, the U.S.S. Werhner von Braun, Family Video, The Deep Comics, and Alexander’s Martial Arts. The drink offerings include milkshakes flavored with Little Debbie snacks and a daily flavor of Kool-Aid. The menu offered several interesting appetizers from the Rattle & Hummus to the Huevos de Diablo. The entree menu items reference popular culture icons from Arnold Schwarzenegger (The Arnold) to the Flintstones (The Bamm-Bamm) to Yogi Bear (The Pick-a-Nick Basket). For those who want a lighter meal, Supper Heroes also offers several salad options. Kids’ meals are also themed featuring The Mysterio Jr. and The Chicken Hawk.
In terms of taste, Supper Heroes lives up to the claim its menu makes: “Hunger is Vanquished.” My party tried The Bamm-Bamm and The Arnold; both sandwiches were large, warm, and quite filling. The cole slaw was spicy and left your tongue tingling, and the waffle fries were crisp and hot. The kid’s meal came with an entree and fries and a Little Debbie dessert (Swiss Cake Roll, Nutter Butter Bar, Zebra Cake, or Oatmeal Cream Pie). No one at our table ever had an empty glass, and when we were done, we were pleasantly full. The manager even stopped by to thanks us for coming.
My only regret is that grown-ups do not have dessert options. Still my party had a wonderful time and will likely return.
