Good Dogs Big Line

I have been going to Pinks hotdogs for over 50 years. For me they are a good dog but I feel that there are better around in the Hollywood area. The line typically moves fairly fast so don't be intimidated when you see a big line out front. There is parking in the back with An attendant but it is... read more

We was in town from Ohio and we had to eat at Pink's. We are so glad that we did. The line was long, but it is well worth the wait. The best hot dogs that we ever had.

Long line, went very fast! Had the chili cheese dog, vegetarian friend loved the veggie dog! Loved the atmosphere, and the the chili cheese fries were awesome! Huge portion! The onion rings were some of the best I have ever had!

This is on the Hollywood 'must do' list and it's definitely worth a visit for the experience. The anticipation in the queue is half the fun. The wait was pretty long though and the food at the end of it wasn't bad but it's nothing to write home about, just hot dogs and burgers like anywhere else. My Guadalajara dog... More

Heard so much about Pinks Hot Dogs thought it was worth checking out. Came on a Saturday before the lunch rush so there was no line to wait in. I had the chili cheese hot dog. Nothing special about a $4.20 hot dog. The hot dog has a crunchy cast on the skin on the hot dog- I guess some... More

We went to pink's after a long walking tour in paramount pictures. There was a long queue and our turn came after 1hr. The hot dogs were worth the wait but each hot dog was HUGE! In the Man vs. Food battle - food won today and 4 of us could gobble only 5 dogs leaving 1 as a throw... More

This place is well-known, visited by stars. Their dogs are delicious, I got the Chicago Polish. There is a line, even late at night. Read the signs for the ordering process when you walk up, they want to get you in and out because they are busy.

It's a landmark but for a vegan / vegetarian it's none too good. Tried their veggie hot dog and was seriously NOT impressed. i have very high standards though as i don't like putting poisons or low-grade trash in my body.

A crowded venue is always a good sign.All beef kosher hot dogs served up in a plethora of styles. Great cheap eats in the hamburger and hot dog capital. Fries and onion rings ain't bad either.

We got the millennium dog and Brando dog. Both were delicious. The millennium dog was a larger dog and could easily be shared as we had left overs. Highly recommend the bacon bit and cheese fries. The bacon is fresh and tasty. Although the line took half an hour, we enjoyed watching the cooks and deciding from the many choices.
