The hot dog itself is good. However, the way it comes on a tiny box and everything is packed that tiny box. The French fries are not fresh , next time I would avoid eating them.

I love their dessert menu. Yes I know everyone on here is talking about the hotdogs and maybe the cheeseburgers. Which I think are good. Are they awesome? Well depends on what you think *Your* perfect hot dog is. I think it's worth the price and ambiance of your in the 50's kind of era. But back to the dessert.... More

Fun fun fun! Great north side hot dog joint. We all got the Superdawg and fries. Very nice staff. Great dog! The atmosphere makes it worth the visit.

Overrated "icon" (???) of Chicago hot dogs. I never used to go there after the first time when I lived there and when I visited last week my friends insisted on going there. OK brutal as this is going to be, the dogs are mushy, not like the "V" type and supposedly made especially for Superdawg with beef but they... More

I have been going to Superdawg since I was a kid, I have taken out of towners, family, friends, basically any excuse to go! I LOVE Superdawg! Only place to enjoy the best Chicago style hot dog and their specialty pickled tomatoes! Awesome! :-)

Pretty simple review got picked up at airport by my buddy and paid him in Superdawg. Late night hot dogs and burgers. Can't go wrong with either one. Ate at the picnic table since it was a warm night outside.

A Superdawg, fries and a milkshake with friends, is how I spent the Saturday night in Chicago, before leaving back to California the next day. Couldn't get any better than that. I have to admit, it was my favorite hot dog stand that I had the pleasure of eating in Chicago. The old school feel with the carhops, the signage... More

While visiting a friend in Chicago we drove up to Superdawg. I was intent on going because I've seen it on various TV shows claiming it was excellent. I will admit it was a cool little joint packed with a lot of nostalgia, and it looked the same way it did on TV. I remember distinctly on the travel channel... More

This really wasn't anything special as far as hotdogs go -- Portillos is better, faster, and friendlier. The gentleman taking the orders really could stand to be a bit nicer!

We had seen this place on Food Channel and Travel Channel so many times that we HAD to stop on our way to O'Hare. The Superdawg was great and the malt was so thick that a spoon was necessary. I doubt I have ever had better anywhere. We also bought two T shirt $10 each to commerate the stop. We... More
