Carneys in the train rail car. Hot dogs and burgers.

Eatery is in a converted train car. Stan in line. Order your burger or hot dogs, fries, beverages and snag a table inside or al fresco to watch the passerby's walking the Sunset Strip. Good dogs! Jess Kalinowsky Bon Vivant!

A must stop whenever you are on the Sunset Strip. Famous hot dogs and burgers prepared just the way you like them! Friendly and fast service. Fries, salads and wraps are also on the menu. When you get here you'll see what all the fuss is all about! Beer and wine avaliable. Enjoy!

This burger place lives up to its ratings! We read that it was a place not to miss in West Hollywood, and really enjoyed our experience. Super friendly staff and amazingly tasty burgers! There are so many burger places in the LA area, but make sure you go to this one!

It's worth a try, I'm sure a pure American would love the food, however if you are not used to eating 3000 calories in a single meal it might be a bit tough to digest. Food is original as it can be and better than most places that claim to be the original American diner.

It is a lobely place to enjoy hamburgers. They do it all under your eyesight. It is very popular among the young people. It is also a wonderful place to see for us older people. You can feel the old times feeling, when you enjoy your meal, totally worth to try.
