Established in San Francisco in 1949 by local entrepreneur Al Ross, the Bay Area chain featured colossal wiener-dog heads wearing bow ties and chef hats atop each doggie stand. The Doggie Diner soon became a sensation and eventually found itself synonymous with the city by the bay.

Upper Playground and The Society celebrates this iconic fast-food stand with a limited edition commemorative plate, remembering one of San Francisco’s finest treats in town. Only 75 plates made. Now available at www.upperplayground.com/products/the-doggie-diner-plate
