THANK YOU to all who supported our
2022 fundraising. We've hit our goal!
We're so deeply grateful to you, and we can't wait to give you a dusty hug on the playa.
The Dust City Diner is a magical 40s-ish style diner, complete with a quilted stainless steel backsplash, red leather stools, chrome finishes, the Ink Spots and the Andrews Sisters on the radio, and -- of course -- grilled cheese. Our cookin' is so good it was reviewed in Saveur!
Oh ... we have a few dusty, crusty waitresses too!
In support of the 2008 theme “The American Dream,” a group of artists and ne’er-do-wells created the Dust City Diner to share the kind of Playa experience we all love so much: the astonishing performance art one stumbles across just when it's least expected. Although such an experience might happen only once during your Burning Man week, it stays with you forever -- and perhaps even makes you see the world and your fellow travelers with a little more love.
The Dust City Diner will return to the playa in 2022 to continue our tradition of slinging coffee and grilled cheese. We can't wait to serve you!
