We didn't expect too much, but based on the recommendations were hoping for better. Cold, untidy place with zero atmosphere, unless you like trash cans, that is. Went for a chile cheese burger. It came out as a soggy mess of food in which the serviette became embedded in the bun. I feel very sorry for those that claimed this... More

Our 12 year old daughter loved it, the photos on the wall are fantastic and you can just sit back and watch the Sunset strip world pass you by through the window...... plus the fries aren't bad either.

We eat hot dogs maybe once a year, and this is where we come! Love the vintage train car setting and the fun atmosphere. The hot dogs taste great.

The food was great although tables need cleaned and bins emptied quicker. Character of the staff with our kids was a good extra.

Fabulous chili burgers. Don't skip the chocolate banana. I love their fries. A trip to LA without a stop at Carneys is incomplete.

Carneys is already a landmark at sunset. We only tried a hotdog while passing by and it was pretty average. But the price is ok.
