Superdawg serves one of the best (or most likely the best) hotdogs in Chicago. A new branch just opened in Wheeling (333 S. Milwaukee Ave) and I was pretty excited to check it out.
Superdawg is one of the few drive-in restaurants left in the United States. They were able to preserve their style of food ordering which dates back to the 50’s. It is cool to see a designated speaker box with a complete list of menu items in each carport. Their ordering system is also something that is rarely seen at this time. A push of a button (on the left side within the blue frame) prompts the attendant to take your order. Once you place your order, a carhop delivers your order in a unique tray that hooks in your car window.
Last night, we tried their all-time special, the Superdawg. This is not a wiener – not a frankfurter – not a red hot – but their exclusive. This wonderful work of art comes with a poppy seed bun, pickled green tomatillo (I never tried any Chicago style hotdog that serves this), and rippled French fries which are all packed together in a medium-sized box.
The superdawg tastes awesome. You can tell that the ingredients are of high quality and incomparable with the other Chicago style hotdogs around. The thick supershakes are also to die for. I can say that Superdawg is the best Chicago style hotdog that Ive had so far. The ambiance is great while the food and shakes are almost perfect. Though the price is a little way off than the competitors, the quality of the food and pleasant dining experience make up for it.
