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.
The lines are too long and I don't think the taste is any different that the hot dogs I make during family BBQ. It's a $4.50 hotdog people! That's how much it would cost me to buy bread and winnies for 12 dogs! I really don't see what the fuss is about this place... it's pretty average for me
Lines are always overwhelmingly long. Over 45 minuites for a overly priced overly exaggerated un-tasteful hot dog is very disapointing. I must agree with my fellow reviewer with one modification, tourists should stay away as well its a waste of time. Food is either over-cooked or under-cooked. Alot of great things have come out of Hollywood, BUT Pink's isn't one of them.
I don't know what the other negative people are thinking but the hotdogs are juicy and flavorful. Pink's offers tons of varieties (including the more healthy turkey dog) and has even branched out into burritos and burgers. Pink's is famous not only because it's been around so long that it's become a L.A. landmark.... it's famous because the food is so darn good!
