Superdawg's in Chicago is a kind of family tradition in my clan. My aunt who lives in California, whenever she comes into town, one of her first stops has to be at Superdawg. The first thing you wil notice is the large figure of a hot dog with arms, legs, head and loincloth on top of the building. Standing right next to the male, tarzan-like dog is the Jane-like dog right next to him. This, of course, IS Superdawg.
The dogs are actually NOT true Chicago-style hot dogs. A true Chicago style should have relish, mustard, tomato, pickle, celery salt and a sport pepper. These, however, are so tasty you really won't know the difference.
Each dog comes in its own box and covered with the delicious french fries. The shakes and malts are tiny and expensive but worth every penny. Even the dogs are about $4.00 a pop these days so make sure you have saved up enough before going.
You can actually order from the car-hops who will take your order through a speaker and deliver the food on a tray that is placed on your car window just like the old days. In recent years they have created a covered dining area as well.
It's a little pricey, but the experience and the food make Superdawg worth it.
