Dog Haus Opens Downtown

By October 28, 2016 No Comments

San Diego’s dining and craft beer scene just got hotter!  Dog Haus, the celebrated California-based concept known for its gourmet hot dogs, sausages, burgers and one-of-a-kind creations, opened its newest location on Friday, Oct. 21.   Located at 969 Ninth Ave in downtown San Diego, Haus’ hot dog creations feature signature all beef skinless dogs served up on grilled Hawaiian rolls. Fan favorites include Sooo Cali, with wild arugula, tomato, crispy onions, spicy basil aioli and avocado; Downtown Dog, featuring a smoked bacon wrapped dog topped with caramelized onions, pickled peppers, mayo, mustard and ketchup; and Cowboy, with white American cheese, smoked bacon, bbq sauce and crispy onions. Dog Haus’ full menu also includes gourmet sausages, burgers, corn dogs, sides, shakes, and beer.  

To complement the main offerings, diners can pair their meal with a can of red or white wine or a selection of draught and canned craft beer options. Guests can enjoy their cans served up in Dog Haus koozies, a nod to backyard BBQs. All those with a classic PBR craving can get their lager fix with a brown paper bag wrapped can. The fast-casual concept, designed to elevate the nostalgic experience of eating that quintessential hot dog or burger, has a contemporary aesthetic with its modern industrial space. After ordering at the counter, diners can grab a barstool at the communal tables with exposed I-beams or claim a seat at one of the reclaimed wood and steel tables with benches that boast playful phrases, such as “Nice Buns,” throughout the restaurant. The 4,030 square-foot restaurant is the perfect setting to watch your favorite team play on any of the flat screen TVs or step outside and enjoy your dog on the patio tables.

“As an entrepreneur, there’s not much better than bringing something new to a city,” said co-owner Cui. “I can’t wait to see how the community embraces Dog Haus. We have dedicated more than two years to the planning and site selection for this milestone opening in southern California. We wanted to open with the right timing and location and we’re now officially ready to welcome San Diego to meet Dog Haus Biergarten!”

The new restaurant, located at 969 Ninth Ave, San Diego, CA 92101 is open for lunch, happy hour and dinner. For more information, visit, and follow Dog Haus San Diego on Facebook at Facebook/DogHausSanDiego to stay up to date on all location specific happenings.
