In 2002 after spending 32 years in the mining industry, longtime Superior resident Edward “Eddie” Denogean and his wife of more than 50 years Esperanza opened Casa Denogean along side US Highway 60. "We have no business running a restaurant,” he says with a laugh. “But she likes to cook, and people keep going back there. So she’s doing all right."
Sometimes the best things said about a restaurant are the things their guests say...
I was driving through Superior on my way up to Globe and I was hungry. It was breakfast time. Driving along 60, I saw about four police cars parked in front of Casa Denogean and thought "that's the place to eat in Superior". I was not disapointed. I had the #14 breakfast (I think) -- eggs, tortilla, chorizo, etc. They also serve the Kirkland green tea that tastes just like Japanese green tea. The chorizo was spectacularly yummy. It was an all-around excellent breakfast. If you're in Superior and you're hungry, try this place -- and get the Chorizo!
A fine way to end a day after visiting Boyce Thompson Arboretum. Superior is just 3 miles away... The food was delicious and hot. The homemade tortillas and salsa (a bit spicy) and chips were wonderful. We enjoyed the cheese enchildada and bean tostada...hot and tasty. The chile rellenos were super.
The place a drive-in style building, was packed with locals. Our sever was quick and attentive and the prices were fair. We will definitely visit here again!
