In May of 1948, Superdawg® was established at the corner of Milwaukee, Devon and Nagle in Chicago by Maurie Berman and his new wife Florence (Flaurie). Superdawg® continues to be family owned and operated in the same location today. The newlyweds decided to open their own roadside hot dog stand, one that would be as unique and distinctive as they were. Maurie designed an architecturally distinct, 20′ x 12′ building topped with two 12 foot hot dog icons to beckon hungry passersby with their winking and blinking eyes. Maurie and Flaurie then created a proprietary, secret recipe to set themselves apart from the other hot dog stands popping up around the city. With a distinctive look and delicious recipe, they were almost ready to open. All they needed was a name. Inspired by the superheroes featured in the newly-created, popular comics of the ’40’s, Maurie and Flaurie named their signature product and restaurant. It was not a wiener — not a frankfurter — not a red hot — but their own exclusive SUPERDAWG™. Your friendship has made that hot stand grow into the most pleasant drive-in we know of anywhere. Our goal is to serve you in a manner that will make you want to return and bring your friends with you.
