This is a great drive-in and a fun experience for the kids. This place has two giant hot-dogs (dawgs!) which draw people's attention on the corner of Miwaukee and Devon. The food is simple but delicious and according to my husband exactly how it should be "Chicago-style." The kids get a hot dog each which comes with plenty of fries to fill them up. The husband and I like the burgers though I almost never finish mine. I had to take one star off for the prices which are quite steep but we usually bring our own drinks so it stays reasonable.

My great-grandma lived right around the corner at Milwaukee and Devon, so I grew up eating here. As soon as I got my drivers license, this was one of the first road trips I made! I LOVE THIS PLACE! My grandma grew up eating here, too.

Can someone please tell me what the big deal about this place is? If you think this place serves a REAL Chicago Style Hot Dog, you are DEAD WRONG, and have obviously NEVER experienced one. It was just a plain ol' boiled hot dog. WAY OVER

GOOD BUT NOT WORTH THE PRICE

Pros: Good dogs

Cons: Prices

I L-O-V-E Superdawg. I grew up on this amazing drive-in joint. It reminisces a 50's style drive-in and, although, it is a bit pricey for a hot dog as others have mentioned, it is well worth the money. They have burgers, hot dogs, milkshakes, sundaes, etc. I am obsessed with the green tomatoes. Well worth the drive to the nw side of the city if you live in the Chicagoland area.

Check out superdawgs for the only drive-in experience in the city [at least I'm pretty positive there are no others]. Standard fast food and hot dogs, probably not at the cheapest price but an okay price.

Pros: BEST "Superdawgs" anywhere, BEST cheeseburgers, BEST fast food when it comes to burgers, hot dogs, n fries, have a root beer float (blackow)

Cons: parking is limited, hard to get to coming from opposite line of traffic, place COULD use a makeover

.

Over-priced, Over-rated, Confused layout. Parking lot is for carhops or just parking?\r
I think many of those who praise this place are seeing it thru "used-to-be" eyes. \r
Maybe once, long ago, but as a hot dog place in HOT DOG HEAVEN

One of the last drive-in restaurants to survive in the area, this is a must-visit, legendary spot, even if you aren't a big hot dog lover. Located at the intersection of Devon, Milwaukee and Nagle on Chicago's far Northwest side, you can't miss the two giant cartoon hotdogs with lighted, blinking eyes on the roof. The shop still maintains a 1950s look and feel with blue and white neon lights and car hops to bring you your food. As far as the food itself, it's not likely to win any awards, but is basic and satisfying fast food, albeit not for the diet conscious. Hot dogs, burgers, fish and chicken sandwhiches come nestled in greasy fries in a small box. Come for the atmosphere, keep your expectations on the low side for the food.

PROS: Unique drive-in experience a dying concept
CONS: Not for diet conscious eaters, limited fast-food menu

Yes having car hops is an extreme rarity, however NOTHING is worth paying around $5.00 for a hotdog that is completely overdone with condiments. You should charge them for the amount of time you have to spend "seeking out" the actual dog.

Reminisent of a 50's style drive in, this kitchy stand offers you the option of having a server bring your bow wow to your car and place on the side of your door. Dogs are good and everything else is o.k. A little bit expensive for a hot dog stand and a little overrated in my opinion. It's cool to do maybe once in a while.
