Everywhere you go, millions of Americans greet each other with one of the most widely used phrases around, "What's Up Dog!"
Randy Jackson on American Idol can be counted on to greet all the contestants with a "What's Up Dog!". Our vision became a reality when four long time friends, with a love for hot dogs, set out to open their very own gourmet grilled hot dog store in March of 2003, and what better name to use than "What's Up Dog!".
Also to add to a part of San Francisco history we sealed the deal on our first location at 195 Beale St. which is a small 7ftX12ft Concession Trailer that was carefully positioned into a stand alone building that was part of one of the first gas stations in San Francisco, which is a SF landmark.
In our search to ensure that we offer only the best frankfurters and sausages, we visited hundreds of hot dog stores from San Francisco, Los Angles, Chicago to New York. After many months of research and added pounds, we came up with a menu that includes our signature "What's Up Dog!" (New York Style Frankfurter), as well as ten gourmet sausages from the finest sausage makers in the US. That’s not all! We also wanted to bring back some old carnival favorites like the corn dogs (made to order), chili/cheese nachos or fries, French fries, and garlic fries (made from scratch with our very own recipe.) We pride ourselves on our fast and courteous service, so please join us at one of our San Francisco locations and feel free to shout out "What's Up Dog!" as you drive or walk by one of our stores.
