More About Brisbane Ekka Dagwood Dogs

What makes our Dagwood Dog so special? Why do many people travel far and stand in lines for a simple food item? Find out more about our story, product, and our vision below:

  • Our story: Our family business has lasted for five generations, starting with Bill McDonald, and being passed down from generation to generation. We still use the same trailer as Bill’s son, Bob McDonald. We are passionate about the business and love seeing happy faces enjoying shows and festivals.

  • Our product: Our Dagwood Dog is over one hundred years old and still as popular as ever. We still hand-make all our Dagwood Dogs, and they’re freshly produced on premises with no premade products. Many people come from far to get our piping hot, hand-dipped Dagwood Dogs.

  • Our vision: Throughout the years, we have prioritised quality over profit, striving to keep the Dagwood Dog the same as the original: hand-made, hand-dipped, and served fresh for our customers. We love to see people enjoying good quality food and having a fun time at the show or festival. Some of our best memories were made at shows like the Ekka, Sydney Royal Easter Show, Cairns, Grafton Jacaranda Festival, and others, which we still frequent today. Find out where we will be and meet us there to try out your first Dagwood Dog.
