Going to Chicago-- Mon, 05/7/12 8:29 PM (permalink)
I am going to Chicago in late June. I am staying downtown. Is it worth the drive/train ride to go to Mr. Beef/Superdog. Or can You suggest another optioin that is worth my time and effort.

    If you're staying downtown, Mr. Beef and Al's are both an easy cab or bus ride; no need to get on a train.
    While it is an iconic drive-in, and serves a decent product, Superdawg is not worth the effort from downtown. There are plenty of worthwhile Hot Dog joints much closer and serving an excellent CSD.  I've listed a few below.
    Fast Track
    629 W. Lake St.
    Chicago IL
    (312) 993-9300
    Gold Coast Dogs
    159 North Wabash Avenue
    Chicago, IL
    (312) 917-1677

    The Wiener Circle
    2622 North Clark Street
    Chicago, IL
    (773) 477-7444

    Hot Doug's
    3324 North California Avenue
    Chicago IL
    (773) 279-9550

    Chicago's Dog House
    816 W. Fullerton
    Chicago, IL
    (773) 248-3647

    And these are just the highlights.  There are dozens--maybe hundreds--more if you just get out of the immediate downtown area and walk around a little bit.
