Stopped by around 2. Easy parking in back. We had burgers and a chile fry. Chile was alright. Burger meat was awesome. Fries by themselves were really good. We enjoyed the atmosphere. If we do visit again, probably skip the chile. Seemed like canned wolf brand chile. Tasty but not awesome.

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.

this is a railroad car perched on the famous Sunset strip in Los Angeles and has great hot dogs and hamburgers with chile and the works . very inexpensive for a sunset strip restaurant. I avoided going there because it was on sunset strip and thought it would be expensive but very cheap for what you get and delicious. They... More
