“Great Hot Dogs”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 9, 2013

I had to check this place off my list of "gotta try it" places. I have to say it was really good! They have a lot of different options for how to get your dog "dressed". Be sure to look at the walls of celebrities that have been customers of Pink's. Don't be scared off by the Travel channel show with 150 people in line. Just go slightly off kilter from the lunch or dinner hours.

“Gotta Work To Get This Dog”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 26, 2013

Pink's added a location at Knott's, which is good. The downside is that there is no close parking for it. Hard to get to if your not visiting the Knott's location for the day. That said, very good hot dogs, similar to the original Pink;s. Lot's of choices, burgers too. French fries much better than Portillo's. Spartan atmosphere. A little less expensive than the other specialized hot dog places. Worth a try if you are in the area.

“Smells”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed October 21, 2013

I went in there with my family and walked right out, it had a really bad smell. It smelled like a dead animal.

“Great dogs and chili”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 13, 2013

Great hot dogs with unique toppings and best chili fries I have ever tasted. The prices were OK, but slightly inflated simply because it is right next door to Knott's Berry Farm. $4 for a large fountain soda - ouch! Yummy food though

“OK”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 27, 2013

The hot dogs here were definitely not as good as at the Pinks in Universal City Walk. Not sure why, but they weren't.
