(CBS) — Maurie Berman, the founder of the iconic Chicago hot dog joint Superdawg, died early Sunday morning at age 89 from heart problems, his family said.
The original Superdawg opened at the corner of Milwaukee, Devon and Nagle in May of 1948. In 2010, a second location was opened in Wheeling.
Both locations will be closed on Tuesday to honor Berman’s memory.
Maurie Berman’s son Scott spoke with Newsradio and says that he would love everyone to know that his father was a true Chicagoan who loved doing what he did.
