Superdawg Drive-in – Classic Chicago hot dog spot

Founded in 1948, Superdawg is THE quintessential Chicago hot dog place.

Although located north of the city, it’s worth the drive. Visitors can park their cars next to a Superdawg menu and order as they would in a fast-food drive-through. However, as was done in the 1950s, Superdawg employees will bring your meal to your window for you and your family/friends to eat in the car.

This classic drive-through delivers hot dogs nested in to-go boxes that you can order “Chicago style” (a hot dog served on a poppy seed bun with yellow mustard, chopped onion, sweet pickle relish, sport peppers, tomatoes, a dill pickle spear, and celery salt) or you may opt for a less decorated version. These hot dogs are accompanied by some of the most amazing thick, crinkle-cut fries on the planet.

Don’t snooze on their other menu items either; one of my personal favorites are the Supertamales. While Chicago locals debate about their favorite spot to grab a Chicago dog, I’d personally recommend this place, which I’ve been visiting since I was a kid. You’ll easily recognize the restaurant by the 12″ hot dog statues on top of the building.
