In addition to great Chicago-style dogs and friesat Superdawgs, we tried a strawberry shake (made with rich, homemade ice cream) and found one of the best we've ever had.

We include Superdawgs II for its pair of extra long hot dog statues on the roof, named after the owners of the original 1948 Superdawgs, Maurie and Flaurie Berman.
