Cute old-school drive-in serving great Chicago dogs. I read about this place in the book 1,000 things to see before you die. Happy to finally check it out in person. It's a drive-in, so you park your car and order from your car window. They...also have a walk-up counter. Ordered a super dog with all the fixings. Spicy, sweet, tasty. Great hot dog. Compared to Portillos this is a much more authentic Chicago dog. I liked how they give you a pickled green tomato chunk, instead of the traditional tomato slices. I wish more places would do that. The vanilla shake was good. I also liked the super onion chips. Highly recommend.More

It is a place with Superdawgs and Whooper cheeseys. When my distsn relatives come to town they want to go there at least once. I like their Chicago dowgs that are not as common anymore.

Being Chicago natives, my wife & I went to Chicago for a mini vacation the week of 9/27/21. Chicago is, as we all know, a city of low crime; no traffic; convenient parking; and no stress! We planned on visiting some great spots from the...past: The Chicago Art Institute; Lutz’s Pastry (Montrose near Western Ave.); Gene’s Sausage (formerly known as “Meyer Delicatessen”) in Lincoln Square; and take in a boat tour on Lake Michigan of the Chicago skyline (the most beautiful skyline in the world)! But first, we needed breakfast! After rising late, what better place to have a true Chicago breakfast than SUPERDAWG DRIVE-IN, at Noon! Superdawg was established in 1948 at the corner of Milwaukee and Devon, by a WW2 veteran. Audrey Hepburn would have probably become more famous starring in “Breakfast at Superdawg” than a 1961 movie called “Breakfast at Tiffany’s”. Their hot dogs and fries are a perfect Chicago style breakfast. Sixty-four years ago (yes, 64 years ago) my older brothers first took me there when I was four years old. It is a classic Chicago hot dog drive-in. If you have never been there, it is well worth the drive (with minimal traffic) and be sure to pick up a Superdawg T-shirt and/or cap to show off to your friends! Superdawg Drive-In in Chicago is a “Bucket List Must” my friends!More

The best Dawg in Chicago! Always steamed perfectly and topped well. The green tomatoes took me years to try but now I eat it first, yummy. Nicely packed in its box with fries.

Since 1948 this place has been serving young and old. Burgers, dogs, shakes etc . It’s not the cheapest it’s not the best. But it certainly is worth the stop for the experience. They must be doing something right they have been here since 1948...when the owner returned home from WWII and started it all.More

Superdawg is a Chicago classic that truly never goes out of style. The excitement is palpable whenever a car full of fortunate patrons pulls into the lot, genuine smiles spreading across their faces the likes of which have been inspired by the legendary hot dogs...here over umpteen generations. I enjoyed the Superdawg, a dish which does our city proud as a local delicacy which is widely imitated but never matched in juicy, mouthwatering quality. The fries are to die for, and the fried veggies are most definitely worth ordering. I must say, though, nothing tops the frozen "diced cream" creations Superdawg serves up in the form of malts, shakes, sundaes, and "Supersodas". I got the pineapple Supersoda, and it was divine. (It is both a drink and a float, which comes with a side-car of pineapple syrup to pour on top of decadent vanilla ice cream). My sister described her vanilla malt as "delicious. Super rich and creamy--just what I wanted". Prices are reasonable for this kind of food, though not necessarily cheap. If you're ever driving by, be sure to pull into the lot to enjoy some classic American nostalgia for dinner. You won't even have to leave your car.More

Nationally-known as one of the few places in America still with car-hop service just like when it opened in 1948. People come from all over the country and the world to have the experience in the Gladstone Park neighborhood. Even if you don't want one...of Chicago's top-rated hotdogs and fries, visit to see the mid-century spaceship-like architecture and the roof-top hotdog icons named after the original owners. A BLAST FROM THE PAST!More

Got to go with my family here in Chicago. We try to visit them yearly at least but it’s harder with COVID. Fresh food and tasty fries. Hot dog is made of 100% as far as I can tell. Gotta visit this place. God bless.

Once you have visited Superdawg Drive-In, you'll never forget the experience...the iconic signage, the Chicago-style hot dog that is ranked No. 3 in the nation by one survey, the fries, the milk shakes, the sodas, the chili, the car hops, the tradition. Located at 6363...North Milwaukee Avenue on Chicago's northwest side, at Devon and Nagle, it is a nationally known hot dog stand that dates to 1948. The original owners, Maurice and Flaurie Berman, are gone. But the family continues the tradition. They serve a superior pure beef hot dog...no pork, no veal, no cereal, no filler...and it's dressed with all the trimmings--golden mustard, tangy piccalilli, kosher dill pickle, chopped Spanish onions and hot pepper on a poppy seed bun. Wash it down with a pint of double rich chocolate or real fruit strawberry-flavored milk shake or a frosty mug of root beer. Or a soda with scoops of ice cream in a pool of chocolate topped with whipped cream and cherries. My wife and I have been enjoying Superdawgs since we moved to downtown Chicago in the 1970s. The good taste never goes away. Superdawg Drive-In is open from 11 a.m. to 1 a.m. Sunday through Thursday and from 11 a.m. to 2 a.m. on Friday and Saturday. From the day shift to the late-night shift, it never gets old.More

I went here with my kids. It’s been over 25 years since I went. I honestly remembered not liking it. This time the service was good. The hot dogs and fries were perfect. Well done.
