Pink's Hot Dogs
When you turn the corner from Melrose Avenue at LaBrea, you cannot miss the line that has been extending from Pink's since it opened in 1939. Chili dogs, chili fries, chili burgers, turkey dogs, burrito dogs--every imaginable (and sometimes unimaginable) permutation of the wiener can be found here. No matter the time of day or night, you will find yourself standing in line with tourists, corporate climbers and celebrities. Cash only.
Way over rated. I like hot dogs, just not these hot dogs, and they are expensive! I don't do chili dogs. So, dog in a bun, mustard and relish delivers a big nothing, plus the dog fights back. This place is well reviewed because people feel that they are supposed to like it. If you like this place your going to live El Coyote on Beverly. For a hot dog, stick with Costco, a buck fifty buys you a Hebrew National dog and a 20 ounce fountain drink.
Even the now boiled Dodger dogs are better than Pinks. If you must go, 10AM and 3PM are your best times.
first of all,.... you can't make a hot dog like pinks at home. the junky hot dogs they sell in the store are tasteless and without the appropriate 'snap' that a good hot dog has. remember, we are talking about hot dogs here. the place is legendary. a must go. the hot dogs are as good as they get and the service is unbelievable. order 10 different dogs from one person. they never write anything down prepare every item themselves, and remember every condiment you wanted. it rocks. no doubt about it. I get the bacon / mustard dog. some of their killer fries and nacho cheese sauce to dip the fries in. what can i say, ..... i'm a health nut. a must go.
