Aurora, IL



When this Dog n Suds became Swony's Drive Inn, the sign was adapted. Swony's was there since at least 2003 and closed around 2005. In 2006, the sign was removed. It is now in a private collection. A new sign was installed when the place reopened as the Doggie Diner. In 2017, the place was known as The Diner. By 2018, the building was housing Taco Movil. [map]

Alsip, IL
This former Dog n Suds was known as the Frosted Mug when the photo at the left was taken in 2006. It featured car hops, homemade root beer, and Cruise Nights. The business closed in 2008. In 2009, the Frosted Mug part of the sign was removed (photo at right). The Char-co Burgers part was apparently used by the Dog n Suds chain. There is another example at the Paragould location. In 2010, the building and canopy were repainted but the place remained vacant. In 2013, the sign was adapted for Demon Dawgs which opened in 2014. That business closed in 2017. The building now houses the El Don Mexican resaurant. For more, see these websites: 1 and 2. [map]
