Well Documented Hot Dog Place

We first read about this place in the book 1,000 Places To See Before You Die. Believe it or not this was one of the restaurants highlighted as a must visit before you die.

I would be curious if there was a better dog out there! Superdawgs has been a landmark on Milwaukee Avenue for decades and it still delivers. We had the classic superdawg which comes in a fairly small box which feels like it weighs one pound! Inside is the most tastiest hot dog smothered in french-fries and the signature pickled green...

I grew up in Chicago and this is the best hot dog/hamburger/tamale restaurant that I know. This is not a retro restaurant. Yes they have those original microphone things that you pull into your car window. Yes the food is served by car-hops on roller skates. Yes you eat in your car from a tray that attaches to your car... More

I recommend the woopskidog, it's delicious. Old fashioned 50's drive in. Piece of American nostalgia. Good fries. Good hotdogs. You go for the fun of it. It's across from a beautiful forest preserve, incase you are traveling far....stop there too.

Superdawg has been at the Corner of Milwaukee and Devon for over half a century. I have been going there since the 1960's a tru drive-in. I know people that when they fly into town they have to go directly to Supersawg. Besides a great Hot dawg, the Onion Chips are a fantastic side. I know Hot Dogs are a... More

I was so mad after going here! I heard so many good things about this place from reviews and TV shows. This place is seriously the worst hot dog I've ever had. I got the Chicago dog with the whole peppers on top, the peppers were shrivled up and really dry. When I opened up the cardboard container that the... More

Your traditional Drive in experience to experience the best hot dogs in Chicago. The burgers are great, the vanilla malt is thick and very tasty and the hotdogs rock!!!! Worth every mile you need to drive to get to it

This place is awesome. First of all, the quality is high. These are really good kosher dogs. Second, they do the best job of loading up all of the necessary toppings for a classic Chicago style hot dog. It really is an architectural achievement. Finally, the drive in is just an awesome option. I was driving around with a sleeping... More

We ate here 2nd April and with our Groupon ordered three superdawgs. We really enjoyed the food and the drive through aspect was a fun gimmick. The box was maybe too narrow for all the food, as although the large amount of fries was nice, in order to reach our hot dog we needed to eat all the fries first.... More
