The Early Days of the American Hot Dog

Boner Billy's Hot Dog Truck

One of the many Boner Billy’s Fine Foods & Merchandise delivery vehicles in the early days in San Francisco California.  Boner Billy’s est. 1849 started as a small trading post in the foothills of the Sierra Mountains. The trading post was a favorite stopover for food and supplies as thousands of gold seekers headed to the California gold fields. Boner Billy’s known for it’s large tube steak on a bun is believed to be America’s first Hot Dog. The Big Boner as it was called due to it’s size and named after it’s inventor Boner Billy was very popular.  The Big Boner was a lifesaver to miners as it was two meals in one and when wrapped in paper stayed fresh for days. A saying was coined around the area at the time. “a nugget of gold and a Big Boner and the world was yours.”

Boner & Elvis


We have received word that Boner Billy was a regular backstage guest at many Elvis Presley concerts. It seems they were great friends and Boner served as Elvis’s Master Chef.  They say the first thing Elvis did when coming off stage would be to grab a big, hot, juicy boner. It seems Elvis liked his boner wrapped in bacon and covered in peanut butter. We are looking for any photo’s of the two of them together so we can verify this story.

Boner and Marilyn Monroe?

Thanks to Ms. Sandy whose mom worked with Marilyn Monroe and found this old photo of the lovebirds. It seems few knew but Merilyn and Boner were a thing for a short time. She would take long rides with Boner on Chubby along the beach.  By the look on Boner’s face it seems he was in heaven
