Super Duper Weenie

306 Black Rock Turnpike, Fairfield, CT - (203) 334-DOGS

While I agree with the overall opinion that Super Duper makes a good dog, I believe that there are better dogs to be had. I've had the Dixie dog, New Englander, and New York dog. The dogs are tasty and have a nice snap. The combinations are interesting. I was not impressed with the depth of flavor in the Chili. I think the chili at the Glenwood Drive-in has better flavor and spice. I also prefer the New England style bun which is not used at Super Duper. Roscoe's in Hartford has most of the same combinations and some variations not found at Super Duper.

The French Fries are outstanding. They a fresh cut, thin, and crispy. Salt and pepper are all you need to enhance the experience.

Super Duper is worth a stop if you are driving on I-95. But I would suggest you keep going (assuming you are headed north) and hit Danny's Drive-in in Stratford.

What a Pair! Two New Englanders, topped with sauerkraut, bacon, mustard, sweet relish, and raw onion. The bacon is buried underneath the dogs, and the mustard is eclipsed by the sauerkraut and sweet relish.

There is nothing fancy or outrageous about it, but this just might be the Platonic hamburger, i.e. ground beef perfection. It is a 6.5 ounce mound of ground chuck and sirloin that is wildly juicy and, with Chef Gary's wicked-good salt-n-peppered crust, insanely flavorful.

Three sizes of French fries are available. This is a 'small' boat. Fries are an essential part of the Super Duper Weenie dining experience.

This is a single order of onion rings ($2.50). It's not a huge quantity, but each one is a multi-bite item to savor.

Super Duper Weenie recently added the capabability to make milk shakes. This chocolate shake is thick enough to support a straw. Strawberry shakes are made directly from pureed strawberries.

Traditionalists miss the mobile truck that was Super Duper Weenie (and is now SDW's catering operation, but this firmly-planted restaurant has all the charm and sass of the eatery-on-wheels ... and the same fantastic food.

A close view of the Chicagoan shows how the split dog is laid upon tomato slices and is, in turn, topped with condiments.

One of the great things to eat other than a hot dog: the Mighty-Ity. Short for 'Mighty Italian,' it is sweet or hot sausage with grilled peppers and onions and cheese on a Portuguese roll.

Chef Gary was lamenting to us that local ordinances have virtually eliminated neon signs from the Fairfield landscape. His sign is legal because it is behind the window rather than in front of it.
