Superdawg is a
drive-in hot dogstand with carhopservice located at the intersection of Milwaukee Avenue, Devon Avenue, and Nagle Avenue in the Norwood Park neighborhoodof Chicago, Illinois. Superdawg has the distinction of being one of the few original drive-in restaurants left in the United States. Its methods have been the same since it opened in the 1940s.
Superdawg was featured on The Food Network's television program "
Unwrapped" as well as " Emeril Live" and has been visited by many critics and food aficionados. Superdawg is also listed in the book " 1,000 Places to See Before You Die". Additionally, Superdawg remains a favorite with locals and attracts locals on a regular basis.
In 2003, a second Superdawg was opened in Chicago Midway International Airport's B
concourseserving Southwest Airlines. In April, 2008 plans for a 3rd Superdawg were approved by the Wheeling Village Board. It is scheduled to open in the spring of 2009 at 335 S.Milwaukee Avenue.
Superdawg was opened in May 1948 by Maurie and Flaurie Berman, who still own and operate it, today with the help of their children. Although the restaurant has undergone some expansion and remodeling, the landmark figures of
anthropomorphichot dogs on the roof date from the beginning.
The restaurant retains a 1950s style of ordering food. Customers pull their car up to one of the carports and order through a retro-looking metallic speaker box. The orders are delivered to the car window by a
carhopwith a tray that hooks on to the car door. When finished eating, the customer flips a switch on the box and a carhop comes to take the tray back. Many of the carhops have been there for years and have a loyal base of customers. There is also a walkup window and a small seating area inside the restaurant.
All of the
sandwiches come with rippled french fries inside a box that helps retain its heat. Every Superdawg comes with a signature pickledgreen tomato, one of Superdawg's distinctions from the classic Chicago-style hot dog, along with its spicier-than-usual wiener.
