Does anybody have ay information on Dog n Suds. I remember going to one on Belmont west of Austin. This would have been around the mid 70s.

There are still a few around. Up north, there's one on Rollins Road at Washington Street in Ingleside (just south of Fox Lake), and on US 12 at Golden Hawk Road, north of IL 173 in Richmond.

There is also a former Dog 'n Suds on IL 120 (Elm Street) on the east side of McHenry; but it closed over twenty years ago and has been a used car lot for just about that long. The Dog 'n Suds sign is still present, although it was painted-over.

I think that there's also a DnS near Rockford, but I've never visited that one.

There was a Dog N Suds out here in St. Charles a long time ago-it had long since become something else by the time I remember it in the 80's You can also still find Dog N Suds root beer in bottles in a few stores-a local grocery store here often has it.

I've eaten at the one in Richmond a couple of times-it's on the way home from Road America.

There is still a Dog N Suds in Loves park, IL that operates in the summer. I remember one in Crystal Lake also back in the 70's. It turned into some other kind of Vienna Beef place and now I'm not sure if the building is still there or not.

There used to be one in South Holland, at or near the southwest corner of South Park Avenue and 170th St. (across from where they build Thornwood High School).

There also used to be on in Lombard, a popular place to hang out and cruise through. I remember a friend pulled a prank and put one of those lawn jockeys on the roof at the front of the drive through (so you could see it from the street). Don't remember the street it was on but, it was the east side of downtown Lombard. We used to call it the "Arf & Barf" as the food was not too good.

The original building for a Dog 'N Suds still stands on the northwest corner of 154th and Cicero in Oak Forest. I was there one night in the summer of 1966 when a Corvette drove in with squealing tires and split his hood in two when he hit one of the angled pipe roof supports. We all gave him a round of applause! The building is now being used as a pickup truck bed camper cap company. There was also an A & W Root Beer stand on the east side of Cicero near 153rd across from the Oak Forest Bowl. That structure is now gone.

There was a Dog n Suds in Bridgeview on Roberts Road. One of my relatives developed, built, and operated it for several years. There was a drug store next door where I bought boxes of baseball cards!

The Dog and Suds location was at 6100 W Belmont. circa 1973

The building itself is a converted Shell Gas station. Until they re-paved the parking lot last year,
you could see the outlines of the old " bays " in the picnic area.

The same building housed several Fast Food establishments including...
Yogi Bear Honey Fried Chicken (another location was on Howard near Sheridan Rd)
and also Alfies Fish and Chips.

It was also a 24 hour family Restaurant but I dont recall the name.
update Nov 2012...The name was the Galaxy Restaurant and it operated for about a year.

For the past 20 years or so ... It's been called The Dog Stop.

Last Arf & Barf I remember was in Waukegan, just east of Green Bay Rd.on Belvidere, when we moved there in 1969. It closed, and then they built a Dunkin' Donuts in front of it on the lot, then tore it down.
