Superdawg Drive-In

Multiple Visits
6363 N. Milwaukee Ave., Chicago, IL 60646
Superdawg Drive-in on Urbanspoon

A Quick Word:
Home to the two famous Superdawg statues on the top of their drive in, this place is considered one of the greatest places to get the famous Chicago Style "Hot Dog." With all the perfect toppings, there is no place better in Chicago to try this hometown classic. (read below to see the toppings!)  The only problem is the location of the restaurant.  It is a good distance from downtown Chicago, making it difficult to get to on a daily basis.  I wish they had such an amazing restaurant in the city.  A must try!

What I ate:


The superdawg... Finally made it to this amazing drive in. An all-beef hot dog with mustard, onion, neon green relish, a wedge of tomato, picked sports peppers, a dull pickle, and celery salt. All served on a steamed poppy seed bun. The toppings were perfect.. But, I do wish I had a couple more of the sports peppers. The hot dog had a nice crisp.  The fries were not salted which was nice... you could add salt if you want to.  All in all, it was an amazing meal... Definitely living up to all the hype.


Another solid meal at this drive in... The bun was steamed too and the burger was juicy. With the grilled onions, hot peppers, and mustard... It couldn't get much better.  And, once again that signature neon green relish covered the burger.  

Supersteak Sandwich

Their spin on a BBQ brisket sandwich. It was a thick cut of meat, but unfortunately it was not very tender... Also, the BBQ sauce was too sweet for my liking. And then they added the grilled onions which made the sandwich even sweeter. I wasn't a fan of this sandwich. Just stick with the superdawg or superburger... Those can't disappoint, especially the superdawg!

The DOs/DON'Ts:
- When ordering, pull up to one of the bays and roll down the window.  Place the switch to order and someone will talk to you through the speaker.  They will then bring your food to your car.  Once you are done, just flip the switch the finished or clear and they will come back to grab your tray.  It may be confusing at first, but you will get the hang!
- Do order the Superdawg!  It is the best thing on the menu and I can guarantee you will not be disappointed.
- Ask for extra sport peppers... They come with a couple on the Superdawg but the more the better!

- Don't call it a Hot Dog... people will be disappointed.
- Don't ask for Ketchup... it doesn't belong on a superdawg and definitely on a chicago style "hot dog".

How far would I walk for this food?
