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

We were visiting some friends in Cali and had to stop at this place from all the buzz I've heard. They aren't kidding when the line is stretched down the block. Overall, the line goes pretty quick. They have menu items displayed before you get to the cashier so you have time to read and decide what you want. Good... More

OK the food may or may not be extraordinary but I liked the hotdog and the atmosphere is great. Pink's is a Hollywood institution and the lines indicate the fun of the place with tourists and locals lined up to get in. I would put it on a par with Super Dawg in Chicago for good hot dogs (and L.A.... More

We visited Pink's for a quick dinner and we were not disappointed. The chili dogs were amazing (see photo). The offer a variety of bottled drinks and homemade lemonades. There are only a few seating options. They do have there only free parking area.

Waiting in line here is fun experience. During the day it's filled with tourists and at night it's full of drunks. There are lots of hot dogs to choose from, probably too many for someone visiting for the first time. My wife and I each tried three different hot dogs combinations and we found that they were all decent but... More

Was in Hollywood and had to stop for a famous hot dog. The line was manageable the day I was in town so even better.. The dogs are great and the cheese fries make a nice complement. A must do when in Hollywood.

OK they serve fries too but you go to Pinks for the hot dogs! I highly recommend the Guadalajara Dog. But any of the hot dogs I have had at Pinks have been really delicious. Get the fries that go great with the hot dogs but if you're watching your figure just get the hot dog.
