Open late every night and wicked late on the weekend, Carney's is determined to satisfy your chili fries and burger cravings, delivering a pitch-perfect experience in this genuine, vintage yellow Amtrak train car from the 1920s, done up as a classic diner on the inside. And that is not all! They have a worthy lineup of hot dogs and polish sausages, much touted as some of the best in town, all at the lowest imaginable prices, especially given the joint's docking grounds - the east tip of the Sunset Strip. A private lot behind the car takes away the headache of parking at the Strip while the amiable, smiley service assures you that you have come to the right place. And if you already think the place is cheap and swell, try it for happy hour! - Jamie Zum
It is shaped like a train and you line up to order in a strange formation, but the food and prices are hard to beat. Try the veggie burgers. You have to order them before you get in line for them to be ready, but they are worth the wait
There is something ultimately satisfying about taking 30 minutes out of a busy day or Friday night to relax on Carney's patio, sipping a cool beverage and eating one of the best hamburgers on the planet earth. Carney's doesn't have the largest menu in the world, but they are fast and effecient. There is a great debate about whose burgers are better, Carney's or the original Tommy's. Althogh the food is great at both places, I tend to feel a bit safer on the heart of the Sunset Strip, then to take my chances on Rampart Street.Carney's history is told on the wall in the form of photos as you await your order being taken ( note the Steve Martin billboard in the backround). The ingredients are always fresh, and the location is a lot of fun. Near the landmark Chateau Marmont and the Argyle Hotel, Carney's is a great place to stop while visiting Hollywood.
