We usually go in the evening and eat in our car with the food try hanging off the window, just like I remembered as a kid at another Dog N Suds more than 40 years ago. Period music is usually playing, families and folks of all ages stop by the Dog N Suds. Servers are young ladies, and the food... More

Dog N Suds has old school charm, but hasn't lost the flavor. The food is good, and so is the service. Great location. Check it out.

So I was asked to meet for a walk called The Barefoot Mile at the Dog & Suds. I don't know about you, but I really thought it was going to be a place to come and bathe your dog! Lo and behold the "Dog" was for Hot Dogs and the Suds was for Root Beer! LOL! I was hysterical... More

When I was growing up, thankfully, I didn't have to drive all the way to Grayslake to enjoy a coney dog and a mug of root beer at a Dog 'N Suds drive-in. It's a shame. Dog 'N Suds is a midwestern chain of hot dog and root beer drive-in style restaurants that still features in-car service via car-hops. The... More

Pretty pricey. Food is okay but it's a little expensive. We usually have hit dog baskets. Cole slaw is good and root beer floats.

My favorite, "Texas Burger" never fails me, my DNS staple. The root beer in the mugs takes you back along with the drive up, car hop service. It's a fun place to eat and enjoy the scenery. Prices aren't cheap, but a real nice experience. A wide variety of food for the whole family. While 60's music plays on the... More

A fun place to have a meal brought to the car by friendly wait staff. I'm partial to the chicken sandwich while others prefer the burgers. The root beer is a special treat. They close in winter, reopening in late February.

It's never oficially spring until I've had a Texas burger. The is a Dog n Suds specialty and it is fantastic. True, they close for a few months during winter, but I believe this year they's reopening in late Feb., so you don't have to wait too much longer. My Mom loves the Chcago dogs, say it's the best in... More

A real drive in with trays that go on your window and everything. They make their own root beer! The food is not why you go, but it's still fun. Taking the kids to a place like this is sharing a piece of history.
