A Chicago culinary institution is getting some love from a national publication.

Esquire magazine named Superdawg "The Most Life Changing Hot Dog in America."

Superdawg, located in the Norwood Park neighborhood at the corner of Milwaukee and Devon avenues, has been around since 1948 and is known for its iconic sign.

But it's Superdawg's Chicago-style inspired all-beef hot dog that's getting all the props for what the magazine called "an exacting commitment to quality."

Superdawg received almost 50 percent of the vote in Esquire's Eat Like a Man survey.

Chicago's Hot Doug's came third in the poll, with less than 10 percent of the vote.

Superdawg is set up like an old-fashioned drive-in, with car hops bringing the food to customers.

Maurie and Flaurie Berman opened the restaurant, and still operate it today with the help of their children.
