Hot Dogs & Chile!

The best Chile Dogs in LA and great Fries. Cool Cozy train car in a great location on the Sunset Strip. Don't eat Dogs often but when I do I get them here!

Stopped with the kids and ordered hot dogs and chili. Pricey for what you get (a medium soda is $2.50), crowded, filthy, and not great. The hot dogs are the kind with the natural casing (the crunchy tougher skin, which I actually like) but they are nothing special and certainly not juicy and delicious. Skip it.

Had lunch here a couple of times while staying in the Hollywood Hills. Amazing chilli, a strange sounding but very tasty chicken and apple sausage in a bread roll, and fab sweet potato fries. A great example of a burger and hotdog joint, in a great setting (old railway carriage).

Fun place, yummy burgers! Was our first taste of chili-burgers (we are Australian and it's not so much done over here). Kids loved their meals, and the gentleman who owns Carney's chatted to us for a while - loved the personalised service! And the sweet potato fries were amazing. Our 3yo son loves trains and he had an absolute ball!... More

Came at 1:00 on a rainy Wednesday and had no trouble with parking or seating. Great for car watching right along the bend in Sunset Blvd. Saw 10+ Porsches drive by. Great view of the strip. Had the cheeseburger with the chili and it hit the spot! Private parking lot out back is sweet. Not much room though and the... More

It has history. It has great service. You get to eat in a refurbished old train. The food is amazingly delicious. If you are going to cheat with your diet then do it here. You will thank me that you did! Check out the pictures that I have posted with my review for your reference.

A unique dinning experience in the USA. Dine in railway carriages on Sun Set Blvd, across the road from our Best Westin Hotel. Hot dogs were great.

Took my teen daughter here for quick dinner. She pronounced her hot dog "excellent" and I thoroughly enjoyed my larger-than-expected taco. Quick service, clean, great food, complete cross-section of America eating here. And great prices. I'd definitely be back, except we were only here for the week.
