What better place to grab a hot dog than in the city it first appeared? Chicago’s family-owned Superdawg Drive-in is known for three things: the two 12-foot-long hot dog statues with blinking eyes mounted on its rooftop and hearty, made-to-order franks. The recipe, which makes for a smokier and spicier sausage, has been the same since the drive-in opened in 1948, when a sandwich and a drink cost just 32 cents. Hot dogs are, as the locals say, “dragged through the garden” and slathered with toppings, then served in a cardboard box with crinkle-cut fries and Superdawg’s signature pickled green tomato.
