So good, so good!

I had Pink's on my list of places to eat while in Hollywood so when we drove pass it on the way to Hollywood & Highland I suggested to my travelmate that we stop. Awesome decision.

Pink's is a well known hot dog joint - that is so much more than run of the mill dogs and burgers. The descriptions are mouth-watering and the portions are generous - large enough to share and have left-overs.

First of all, I do recommend coming here, as it is a local legend. The line was long but the service was very friendly. The interior was cool, as there are tons of pictures of celebs who have visited Pinks. Typical LA prices, not too outrageous. What I don't get is why this place is such a big deal (minus... More

We went for the cultural experience, having seen it on the Food Network and we were glad we did because the dogs were incredibly tasty! So many to choose from, I would go back for sure! Only complaint is the chili makes the bun soggy (I'll ask for that in the side!) fast service & ambiance made it a pleasure!

Delicious hot dogs and fun atmosphere. It's cool to see all the autographed pictures of celebrities and of course the kids loved the valet parking (and it's free) Line seems long but goes pretty quick. Can't wait to go back next time we are in Hollywood.

Went with friends, amazed by the line but it was a quick line. Did enjoy the hot dogs and the pink lemonade. You have to try it at least once while you are in Hollywood.

This place is all hype. Their dogs are no better than anywhere else. It's just a tourist trap. I'm from NYC. I KNOW good dogs. These ain't it!

Pink's is way over rated. Who wants to stand in line for 30-60 minutes for HOT DOG??? Not even a big juicy tasty one, just a skinny one on a average bun. Pink's is "famous" for being "famous". NOT because it is good food. The staff are overworked, and therefor a bit 'surly' sometimes. Good for late night after drinking... More

Anytime you go there will be a line but it is so worth the wait....and it is fun. Some will tell you the food is ok...but it's what you think that matters...so give it a try.

We were at the Bronson Caves making our way to the Tar Pits - this is the PERFECT stopping point for a quick lunch. However, it wasn't quick. We paid for street parking - there was plenty @1:30. We got in line - we didn't place our order until 1:55. Funny thing is that we went to Universal Hollywood 2... More
