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!

The Dust City Diner is run with a lot of love,
a little grit, and the support of our community. 

Any questions? Send us an email!
