I searched online for favorite places to get a REAL Chicago hotdog and Superdawg was often mentioned. So next time we visited our son in Chicago we went to Superdawg. Turns out we were both celebrating 75 years in July. The drive-in was busy about...2 on a Sunday, but our order was handled fast and efficient. That big dog was resting comfortably on the bun and covered with toppings, cozy in the paper container with the fries. Vanilla shake was also tasty. I salute Superdawg on 75 years! Looking (and tasting) good.More

This is a classic car hop restaurant was opened in 1948 by a returning World War 2 veteran. You have to park in a car hop spot if you want take out. Next time, I would like to try the deserts. I had a SuperDawg...with all the toppings and fried vegetables.More

I wanted to try this place due to its notoriety, but I was not impressed whatsoever, and I was starving when I went. Sad because I wanted to like it :(

Do not go here! I know it is an iconic place. We did not return after 4 years because of getting ripped off on food and burnt fries. It happened again, we were trying to support our local school today because they gave 20% back...to the school. However, we ordered Chili to go with the hot dogs, did not get the chili for $10.50 for 2, and our fries were burnt again. Never going back.More

I got two dogs - one with everything and one with just mustard. I just really hated the Chicago style hot dog. There was too much on it to allow the flavor of the hot dog through. The hot dog with just mustard was delicious....I also got the chili and that was really good too. I guess it's a matter of taste. The fries are the worst ever.More

This is the worst dog I’ve ever ate compared to the distance and the effort. The trip is not worth it at all.

Super dash never disappoints. Very consistent. The hot dog and fries never disappoint. Burger was smaller than usual and tasted different. Come here every time we visit.

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
