A few words of praise for Superdawg...
1,000 Places to See Before You Die, A Traveler's Life List by Patricia Schultz - 2003
"But there is something special about the classic drive-in fun promised at Superdawg, open since 1948. Not only are the red hots flawless here, but so is the funky ambience, where you still order from outdoor "Order Matic" speakers and have your tray delivered by a carhop waitress who'll attach it to the side of your vehicle with a smile."

"As much a part of Chicago as the Bears and the Daleys", this "kitschy, retro" Northwest Side "top dawg" is the No. 1 Bang for the Buck in our Survey and "has been there forever for a reason": "the Rolls-Royce of hot dogs" is "hung on your window" by carhops.
Frommer's Chicago - 2004
"My all-time favorite... is the legendary Superdawg Drive-In. It's impossible to miss: Mr. and Mrs. Superdawg in Tarzan and Jane tableaux, beckon the masses from the rooftop... The main attraction still arrives in a red 1950's-design enclosed box that declares on one side, 'YOUR SUPERDAWG LOUNGES INSIDE, CONTENTEDLY CUSHIONED IN SUPERFRIES'."
NorthShore Magazine - April 2003
Chef Henry Adaniya of Trio Restaurant in Chicago says, "I'd take every kid to Superdawg. It has a great hot dog and it's a drive-in-the only drive-in in the city. Where else are you going to find a place with carhops? They have incredible hot dogs. It's my favorite hot dog anywhere..you can't go wrong."
USA TODAY - July 22, 2003
"This slice of road-food heaven offers everything you want in a Chicago dog and in a drive-in."
The New York Times - July 3, 2002
"Prime Chicago outlets include... the old-fashioned drive-in Superdawg, whose franks are served in hilariously retro-themed cardboard boxes."
