Der Wienerschnitzel. Who knew?

Junkyard dog. French Fries, chili sauce, American cheese, French's mustard and grilled onions on a sesame seed bun.

Bacon Street dog. Bacon, mayonnaise, ketchup, mustard and grilled diced onions.

Both damn good. Got the angus dog instead of the ‘original’ dog. Pretty good bbq burger too, though a touch undersized compared to others. Fries were fairly good too. Nice surprise.

I ate at the one in El Cerrito just over 4 years ago. The nearest one at the moment is about 60 miles North of me.

I've been to that one. Still has the cool shape.

Good old DER Weinersnitzel.

Should be Wienerschnitzel, though. Wien is Vienna, Wein is wine.

It's not a long ride to one, and I've always like the Chili Dogs.

There was one not to far from there that was the old shape but it got torn down.

Maybe time to head that way again.

It's a tough market these days. They need to be pretty good just to stay in business. Wienerschnitzel in El Cerrito and Caspers in Albany/Richmond are fairly close to Costco and you don't technically need to have a membership card to use the Costco food court. Caspers is a smaller chain but has almost as many locations in the East Bay.

I will pop into DW every once in a while for a couple of chili cheese dogs, fries and a drink. Their fries are surprisingly good. I wish they used better cheese on their chili cheese dog, but it's still pretty tasty.

Fun fact: The original DW is located just a few miles from where I live.



It is what it is.

I've been out of the East Bay for about 50 years, but are you guys talking about Casper's or Kasper's? IIRC, one was better than the other, but doggone it, I can't remember which was which. I know I favored one, and my step-dad favored the other. OTOH, there is a Der W near here that I stumble into every couple of years as a memory jogger, but for us it's not must-have fast food.

I'm a big fan of Casper's and remember going to one in downtown Oakland somewhere with my dad.

I loved hot dogs and Casper's spoiled me. I still eat them (Safeway'd branded dogs).

Hayward still has two Casper's (my preference) and Dublin has one, and I make a run there every so often.

San Leandro has a Kasper's and I've been to it a couple of times. It's pretty good but they're unrelated and are stealing Casper's inertia.

So I roll with with the OG.

Still remember walking in to a nearly-empty Casper’s in Hayward many years ago. Before I could sit down the guy behind the counter called out, “How many?”

That’s a restaurant worth visiting again.

I thought there used to be another hot dog place near the Plaza, one of these?



Some other historical locations...

I heard for years about Clown Alley. Finally got there and decent, but nothing special.

Could be sentimentality, but the burger place that will forever hold the number one spot in my heart is Hot ‘n’ Hunky.




Holy moly. Now I’m having a flashback to Hamburger Mary’s, south of Market. Only went there twice, maybe three times. But, man was it good. May still be around, this was the early days, some thirty(??!?) years ago. A gaggle of lesbians and one tall drink of water black guy. Good times.

I mourn that Oscars in Berkeley. That was my cheeseburger with a chocolate shake joint.

Not only is Hamburger Mary's still going strong, but check this out. What it's become will flip your top. [www.hamburgermarys.com]

Have you ever been to Germany and tried Currywurst?

It's great street food.

Hamburger Mary’s on Folsom Street in San Francisco was my go-to place for breakfast, lunch, or dinner. Great salads, burgers, omelettes.

Was sad to see it go. Haven’t tried the one version yet. The Marys‘ in Portland, Seattle, and Vancouver just weren’t quite the same.

There was a Doggie Diner in downtown Hayward years ago, along with one in San Leandro.

I liked them because they were open around the clock and that made them worth the trip.

Those are the only two I know of.

The dogs live!

Folks who are nostalgic for the old, bay-area, fibreglass dogs that rested atop Doggie Diners rest assured. Some of the dogs were purchased by a friend. He had them resurrected through a crowd-funding campagn. The dogs regularly show up around the SF bay area on a flatbed trailer.

Here they are—all bright and colorful—at the end of a New-Games reunion a couple of years ago in the Golden Gate National Recreation Area.

I must be deep down the verklempt hole. After poking around that site, I spent a whole afternoon fantasizing about opening up my own Mary’s franchise in some idyllic locale. The kind of fantasies where a little voice in your head pipes up every now and then, I couldn’t REALLY do that though... could I?

But, it requires a few too many zeroes in the bank account, amongst other harsh realities. big grin smiley

I seem to remember a good hamburger place in Berkeley, on a major side street above — Telegraph? Shattuck maybe?

It had a woman's name in the business name. I was only there twice, but it was a really good burger.

Not a gal's name, but my mother favored Barney's up there in that area. They opened a couple down here in LA. Good, but better up north.
