Good dawg

I think this is one of the places you go to if you're in the area. I'm not sure it's outstanding when compared to other Chicago dogs, but the atmosphere and service, drive-in make it unique. If you're in the area, I would recommend a visit.

Chicago hotdogs; if you visit the windy city, you gotta have one, or two or three. And, you GOTTA go to Superdawg! Saw it on tv a couple years ago, and stopped by twice on a recent visit to Chicago. IT IS A MUST SEE. First time, ordered at the window and ate in the added on dining room; it... More

We always stop here on every trip to Chicago. The fries are great. My personal favorite is a jumbo char dog. Have never been disappointed in 40plus years.

This place makes a simple dawg into a culinary experience. If you live in the Chicago area and you did not visit this place you don't know what you are missing. If you visit Chicago, this is one place worth visiting just to get a taste of Windy City life. Our routine: take a bike ride through the forest preserve... More

It opens late night so if you are craving for something delicious to eat, this is your place. The service was excellent and it has this sense of going back in time cause you order the food from your car and they bring it over. The taste is super and the shakes awesome. I recommend it.

Awesome historical drive-in with the best dawgs in Chicago! The onion fries and thick shakes are just a bonus!

Superdawg was opened in 1948. That alone tells you how good this food is to have lasted this long. I've had Chicago dogs before, and thought most of them were very good. They all pale in comparison to the delicious food being served up here! First off, you can pull under the awning and order from your car-side menu. Then... More

With the aura of a 60s or so drive in venue, you would be forgiven for expecting service to arrive at your car via roller-skating courier - it is an interesting themed fast food restaurant. The burgers and hot dogs themselves are good value for money, tasty and competitively priced. It is well worth the trip when opportunity presents, especially... More

I used to like going here, but things have changed. I even put a good comment for them a few years ago on tripadvisor, but unfortunately I have to take that back since my recent visit. If they don't improve their food quality anytime soon, they will be lost and forgotten and Portillo's will be the king of the hotdogs... More
