Dire need of some comfort food, we pulled into Superdawg (@Superdawg) to see our friends Maurie and Flaurie.

Started in 1948, this ancient old-school staple in Chicago has a running 64-year love affair w/ hot dog aficionados across the world.

The Orig Superdawg in Chicago

Having a few minutes to relax in the 100+ degree weather, we opted to grab a few standards.

Proper ordering techniques at Superdawg

Superdawg – $5.50

Not a wiener – not a frankfurter – not a red hot – but our exclusive… Superdawg™. On a poppy seed bun, we tenderly place the loveliest, juiciest creation of pure beef hot dog (no pork, no veal, no cereal, no filler), formally dressed with all the trimmings, escorted by our often imitated, but never equaled, Superfries™. Served with all the trimmings – golden mustard, tangy piccalilli, kosher dill pickle, chopped Spanish onions and a memorable hot pepper.

Magical Superdawg box

So let me make your life easier, repeat after me, “Superdawg dragged through the garden please!”

Superdawg dragged through the garden

Unboxed for you – Easy peasy right?

And you know it’s going to be good when this little magical box can barely stay closed.

Magic awaits you inside

Love it.


Superonionchips – $2.85

Superonionchips – New favorite add w/ my Superdawg

Also these magical love chips made its way into our order. SO. FRICKIN. DELICIOUS.

Side of cheese was a bonus…cause who doesn’t love melty cheese.

(We’re going to have to go back to Swenson’s to see which one is better).

Just realized that we eat at alotta drive-ins, so here’s a pro-tip: If you’re going to a drive-in, STAY IN YOUR CAR.

You look like a bunch of friggin idiots in the parking lot if you’re walking around.

You’re doing it all wrong!

Maybe these fatties were getting out to exercise.

So enjoy those Superdawgs in the vehicle and embrace the “Drive-ins” as they are a part of American history. God bless the USA.

Superdawg is USA

So as a follow up on our “Loud food” post, we figured you wanted to see a few items we talked about. 

If you have to reference the post, check out our “LOUD FOOD” post here 

Check check check it out. 

Here’s #2: Pink fishcake fence with cucumbers drizzled with a miso sesame vinaigrette. 

The Loud Fence

The contrast of the fishcake and the cucumbers is what makes this a loud dish. Also the miso vinaigrette is a great pair with the cucumbers. Visually-how shocking is the pink and green?!? 

Yeah, I know, that last piece of fishcake isn’t quite right, but I envisioned a white picket fence in middle America. This classic white picket fence isn’t perfect…one post leaning more than another, homemade and not perfect thanks to the Farmer John of America, and the concept of “there is always some touch up needed”…ie the white/pink (Maybe more in mind than in service/presentation). 

Additionally, the kitchen photo skillz need some work too. 

Here’s #6: Soba noodles. 

Chilled whole wheat soba


This isn’t a loud dish when you bite into the soba (well, I guess foodies in the world would contest that the noodles would be al dente), but this one has to deal more with the diner themselves enjoying the noodles. 

I believe there was a Bourdain episode where Iron Chef Morimoto talks about the slurping too. Deals with the air intake when slurping, the soba sauce richness, and the quality of the noodles. 

Additionally, for those who do not have soba often, this is served cold. Another contrasting temperature since most of the US believes noodles are to be served piping hot. Think out of the box people. 

Don’t worry, we are also still working on: 

#1: Fresh whole breakfast radishes dipped in chilled miso butter 

#3: Teri-chicken wings (Fried of course) 

#4: Ahi tobiko poke taro chips. 

#5: Chicken yakitori with dark soy (thinking of using hearts or liver) 

#7: Thick cut honey glazed bacon with french vanilla ice cream and mint kiss 

**Any additions to the menu we are missing? Let us know! 

Are we crazy?

BTW-its Hot Dog Month. So eat some hot dogs will ya? I recommend Hanks Haute Dogs or Superdawg.
