Superdawg

6363 N. Milwaukee Ave., Chicago, IL - (773) 763-0660
Posted By Jason Warren on 1/26/2004 2:46:00 PM
Excitement grips you as you drive through Lincolnwood looking skyward for the neon hot dogs perched for decades above Superdawg. This place has it all, great food, car ports, neon dogs, a loyal following and a look as distinctive as you can imagine. In warm weather order at one of the car ports, or at a window. The must have is the Superdawg, nestled in a box with fries. The best of Chicago dogs the Superdawg is the plumpest and juiciest. Served with the appropriate selection of condiments including atomic relish and a pickle, don't order ketchup! Trying to keep it all togther coupled with the flavors hitting your taste buds forces you to gobble it down.

This is one of Chicago's top red hots, served the traditional way buried under a pickle spear, mustard, onions, and picallili. The poppy seed bun is a nice, soft mitt; and the French fries are HOT from the fry kettle.

This is what emerges after wrestling the dog out of the Superdawg box.

These heavily fried and battered onion chips should be tried after everything else on the menu.

The paper wrapping reveals Superdawg's tamale.  It's not the real thing, but interesting nonetheless.

The thin patty on a toasted hamburger bun is delightful.

It's always fun to read the box in which a Superdawg is served.

Supermalts are...well...super!  Thick, rich and frosty while quenching the thirst at the end of the meal.

Eating a superdawg requires many napkins.  This is one that we managed to preserve without spillage.

Superdawgs Flaurie and Maurie standing on the roof make this drive-in easy to spot from a distance.
