For a quick lunch, it was easy and affordable. I went a chilli burger that was a mistake. There was no spice and the "chilli" sauce only detracted from the rest of the burger. Everyone else was happy enough and the sweet potato chips are yum.

First off let me just say that I love Hotdogs. This is one of the best hotdogs that I've had. It's a super fun place to have a hotdog. Where else in the city can you eat in a train car? The people behind the counter are very friendly and they make delicious food. My favorite is the regular Chicagoan... More

10 days on a Californian road trip, this was quite possibly the worst . Probably shouldn't have come for a salad, and the hotdog was awful. My husbands chicken wrap was purple and missing half the ingreidients stated on the menu, best thing was the beer.

This place is perfect late night when you're on an empty stomach, but don't want to get dressed up or send more than 20 bucks. Soft bread, great fries, good burger.

In LA where things are so expensive Carney's is a welcome relief. Had the Chicagoan and it was good.

We were driving along Sunset Blvd. and saw the yellow train. It was the time for the lunch and great possibility to combine the lunch with experience. Actually it was the train inside as well). What I should to say, the burgers and hot dogs were fantastic. Fries - so so. The only complaint is that restrooms and dining area... More

No it is not where Elvis ate, even when the tour operators says it is. The hot dogs and hamburgers are what they are known for. Can't miss it...its in two train cars on a curve.

We stayed over the road from Carneys for 3 nights and ate there twice. The first time we went in I was a little hung over so just just ordered a cheeseburger as I was feeling a little fragile. What I wasn't prepared for was how much flavour had been missing from every burger I've had in my life up... More
