Unfortunately, it looks like prices inched higher again. Up to $5.75 for a superdawg (that's a hot dog for people who may not know this). Superdawg also serves burgers, chicken sandwich, fish sandwich, grilled cheese, shrimp, and a steak sandwich. Fries are also served with most sandwiches. Personally, I love the food. Never had a complaint, and they always get... More

If you've seen "American Graffiti" and remember "Mel's Diner" this is the closest thing to it in the Chicago area. You can go inside and eat in, or in nice weather have them bring your food to your car. Their specialty is their hot dogs. Each dog comes in its own little box lying on a bed of french fries....

I mean it. The hotdogs here are FANTASTIC! Generally pretty crowded during the lunch hour so have a friend scout out a seat while you wait in line to order. For those of us who enjoyed fast food in the 60's, this place will bring back memories. It's not just fast food. It's good food. Fast.

Superdawg is different from any hot dog place. You have to go there to experience. There may be better hot dogs, but none one can match the Superdawg experience

Visited for the first time over the weekend. Very disappointed overall...first of all it's pricey for what you get and secondly, the quality of the food isn't worth the wait. We dined indoors (almost every table was dirty!) and waited at least 20 minutes to receive our order (a cheeseburger, a fish sandwich & a chicken sandwich) even though the... More

I've been going to Superdawg for about 50 years. It has always been great. There simply is no other hot dog like it. Since I've moved to Florida I try to explain it to people but its difficult to describe the taste of the hot dog. Many people think a hot dog is just a hot dog. I guess thats... More

Purchased a voucher through Amazon Local for $10 to receive $20 of food. Purchased dinner for husband and myself. I had never been to Superdawg; however, my husband had frequented the Chicago location many times "back in the day". The Supershrimp was very good and my husband enjoyed his Superdawg. I ordered a side of onion rings. The staff was... More

This visit happened because my girlfriend has a book listing 1000 things to do in your lifetime. We've driven by countless times on the way to my sister's place, but never stopped in. In late November, the time had come. We were there mid-afternoon, so the kitchen was slow. Maybe a higher volume time of day would have improved the... More

This is the newer location of a sixty plus year old hot dog stand. They have a regular burger, fries, hot dog fast food menu but the original dog is the star. The original owners, and their children and grandchildren continue to run the place. Dogs are made to their original specifications, all beef and special seasonings, and have a... More

A bit pricy, I think. Tasty in its own way; love the tomatillo and the pickle. Don't really like the crinkly, soft fries smashed into the box. While I love to go there in the summer and sit outside, I think there are better, cheaper dogs around.
