Doggie Diner was a San Francisco Bay Area restaurant chain that operated from 1949 to 1986. The dachshund head was a prominent feature of the chain. This page shows a number of preserved Doggie Diner heads.


These three heads from the former Doggie Diner fast food chain were mounted on a trailer sitting on Treasure Island. I took these photos on January 22, 2011 during a bus excursion. The last photo features Don Lewis posing with me and the heads. Seven photos added 03/20/11.


A supervisor convinced the City and County of San Francisco to preserve this Doggie Diner head originally at a former location of the restaurant on Sloat Blvd. This pole with head attached is located in the median of Sloat near the Zoo. Six photos added 03/20/11.
