Superdawg

Despite a renovation in 1999, this hot-dog drive-in is still as old-fashioned as ever, with uniformed servers bringing your order directly to your car window. Apparently scared of copycats, the owners have trademarked almost every dish, the main draw being the “Superdawg,” an all-beef frank so plump it’s hard to remove it from its cartoon-covered box. After a meal of hot dogs, fries, burgers (try the delicious, double-decker “Whoopercheesie”) and “Supershakes” (actually not very super), expect to literally roll yourself home.

It is the best Dawg in the city. Fries are perfectly cooked and onion petals are wonderful. Love sitting out and dining with the radio tuned to oldies.


When we go to Chicago we stop at Superdawgs because their hot dogs are delicious. Their food is great tasting.


I drive from Cary, IL to Jefferson Park Superdawg to get my fix


No matter the time of day I go there the staff is very attentive. Food is always good.


Simply the very best in Chicago style hotdawgs, fries and shakes. Pure Chicago all the way through.

This superdawg is a superfun experience. The charm lies in the drive-in component of the restaurant; order from your car and eat food in your car. Voila, a classic American experience. The dog itself is solid; its made in house (read: not Vienna beef), and it's delicious. I still have to say that I prefer a Portillo's Chicago hot dog above all else, but this place is certainly worth a visit for the experience alone. I heard the shakes are pretty great too, but I didn't splurge for one (sigh).

You’ll have to travel to the far northwest reaches of city limits to visit this classic drive-in, but the skillfully executed dishes are worth the journey. The eponymous Superdawg is a unique interpretation of the standard Chicago hot dog, boasting a plumper sausage and a green tomato as a garnish. The Whoopskidawg is my favorite of the bunch—a Polish sausage covered in savory sauce and topped with caramelized onions. Seemingly everything is served on a bed of fries, but the Superonionchips are also worth ordering—assuming you’re not full yet.
