Dodgers News: Dodger Dog Declared One of Most Iconic L.A. Dishes

The Dodger Dog is one of the best known perks of visiting Chavez Ravine. It’s long been considered a staple in Los Angeles culture.

Los Angeles Magazine named the Dodger Dog L.A.’s seventh most iconic dish in its list of the top 100. Credit to Reddit user Daghi for the find.

The Dodger Dog is consistently the most sold food item in major league parks, according to the National Hot Dog and Sausage Council. The quintessential product was created by Thomas Arthur, who served as the food concessions manager at Dodger Stadium from 1962-1991.

We’re getting closer to Opening Day, which means the Dodger Dog will be back to compete for the crown of most popular dish in the MLB – and apparently, Los Angeles.
