I like hot dogs as a guilty treat, and been in LA visiting my brother we decided to go to this joint one evening as part of the city experience. Part of Pink's experience is doing the very relaxed, casual line (about 25 minutes) with expectations rising about what to order. I went for the bacon... read more

Another L.A. Landmark that is famous or why would you be reading this or interested in eating there, right? Like Tommy’s or Carney’s, it is one of those places you have to visit and try, like a ‘Bucket List’. Came here with some friends. The place is simple, no fancy décor, no fancy sign out front, no fancy menus, no... More

If you are a lover of hot dogs than you must try Pink's. They have many different kinds of dogs all named after different celebrities. I usually just get their famous chili cheese dog which is delicious!!! Sometimes the line is long, but it moves quickly and the dogs are worth the wait.

Our hotel's TV channel was raving about Pink's so we thought we would give it a try. OMG, I couldn't even eat it. Now granted, I'm from Chicago, but I couldn't even choke it down. The casing was like shoe leather, it had the strangest onion sauce on it. All I wanted was a normal hot dog...not a chance. Don't... More

Never heard of them before. I first ate at skooby's on Hollywood blvd. They were comparing themselves to Pink's. So we took the plunge. Stopped by, waiting in line for about 30 mins. Not bad and gave us time to check out menu. Everything was good. We tried a chile cheese dog, double burger with chile, chile nacho cheese fries,... More

Visited this place while in California on military orders. My friend wanted to show me around and he made sure we stopped in at Pink's. The food was amazing and the location is fabulous!

Pretty cool to dine in a place that is famous for star spotting! Not to mention the dogs were tasty! Parking is a bit of an issue so either taxi it or hop off the Red Line bus for a visit. We walked from the Chinese Theater and worked up an appetite!

It is a hotdog shack on LaBrea that has been there since the late '50s - lots of history - celebrity photos of who has eaten their and the largest selection of hotdog options I have ever seen. I had the one with relish, diced tomatoes and sour cream. Who would have thought sour cream went on a hotdog -... More

They have a wide variety of toppings and a number of different hot dogs. I've never been disappointed by any combination. Be prepared to wait for your food, like driving around LA, it may take longer than expected.
