One of the United States’ last original drive-in restaurants, this Chicago legend has been serving up classic diner fare since it opened in the 1940s.  Crispy, light fries, delicious homemade sandwiches, and authentic Chicago-style hot dogs can be ordered at the walk-up counter, in the small seating area inside, or the way most customers do: in their cars at the retro-looking speaker boxes.

“Chicago is a great food city. You have some of the best restaurants in the country next to some of the grubbiest eats. Superdawg is my favorite.” – Micah Wexler (Mezze)
