We decided to stop by for a quick bite just to say that we experienced a Pinks hot dog. I ordered the spicy polish sausage and my daughter ordered the hot dog with chili, sauerkraut, and mustard. The polish was good, hot, and firm unfortunately...it was too spicy for me to enjoy. My daughter said her hot dog had more sauerkraut than hotdog. I would go back though and it was worth the tripMore

If in the neighborhood, you got to eat here. There is usually a line, but it moves fast. Anything you can think of putting on a hot dog, they can do. We usually get the Mullholland Dr. Dog, it only takes 1 to fill you...up with the fries and a drink, for they are 9 inch hot dogs. I can see why they have been in business since 1939 in this spot.More

I was giving my friend a tour of L.A. and I had to bring him here. We came on Friday afternoon Oct. 16th, 2020 before taking him to Hollywood. Surprisingly, no long line. More surprisingly, outside patio dining in the rear, which was very nice...(with one employee keeping the socially distanced tables clean and disinfectant was available). I had my personal favorite, Pink’s world-famous Chili-Cheese Dog (All Beef extended Dog with just chili and sliced American cheese) and for the first time, I tried their Pink’s Spicy Polish Sausage with mustard only (It Was HOT!!!) No Line, and No Issues. FIVE CLAWS UP!!! Thanks for reading my review of Pink’s Famous Hot Dogs on La Brea and Melrose. Peace - Joe G. BearMore

I guess I expected something spectacular and it was just ok. Of course the line was very long and they did practice safe Measured

Luckily for me and my wife were were here for the re-opening of Pink’s after being closed for 4 months. The bad news was, so were a lot of other people. We waited in line for over 1 hour. It’s all about the Hot Dogs...they offer but there are also Burgers and plenty of sides to go along with your order. Once you place your order, you can choose to eat outdoors on their patio tables with Umbrella’s for shade, or simply use the take-out service. We found the pricing to be fair and the meal very good. It’s simple enough a Hot Dog, done your way, and a side, i.e., Fries, Onion Rings, etc. They are very diligent about cleaning and following all the necessary guidelines for Covid 19. I highly recommend Pink’s. I hope you find this review helpful in making your next dining plans.More

This establishment has been around since 1939 but this was our first visit. We were at the one on City Walk at Universal Studios, Hollywood. We had a Chicago Dog which is a sausage and a Bacon Chili Dog which had that wonderful crunch in...every bite...like hot dogs used to be!! The fries and onion rings were very good and not greasy. It was customer service with a smile and patience in answering our ‘hot dog queries.’ We will be back before we leave here! Great food, great prices and portions!More

Pink's is an LA landmark. Historic hot dog stand serving great classic hot dogs and sausages with a huge variety of toppings. Expect a line but it moves quickly... I visited on Sunday evening and it was a 20 minute wait but well worth it.

Depending on what time & day you go on. Weekends are most def always the busiest. Summer time is also a very busy time. But if you go during the daytime on a week day, it shouldn't be longer than 20 minutes.
