Built with Groupon - Superdawg

Hear About a Legendary Chicago Business’ Success with Groupon

Built by high-school sweethearts Maurie and Flaurie in 1948 and still owned and operated by Maurie and Flaurie, along with their children and grandchildren, Superdawg Drive-In serves up its take on the classic American hot dog alongside a menu of original drive-in favorites like Supershakes and Whoopercheesies that have earned it feature spots on the Travel Channel and Food Network. The namesake Superdawg vanquishes hunger with a special-recipe all-beef Chicago-style Superdawg flanked by sidekicks of mustard, piccalilli, kosher dill pickle, chopped Spanish onions, and hot peppers. Each Superdawg arrives on a poppy-seed bun with signature crinkle-cut Superfries.
