A popular stop on the hop on hop off. Food is OK. We used it as a restroom stop which was very much called for. There was a line to order for the hot dogs. It looked like a meal and a huge serving.

If you have fifteen minutes to a half-an-hour of patience to stand in line, this classic spot offers delicious hot dogs and a slice of L.A. culture that can't be beat. The dogs are exceptional and the experience definitely is worth the guaranteed wait time (the line moves quickly).

A betty White Favorite, so it's a favorite of mine. Just wish I could get a basic dog too. Onion Rings are not so great. Fried sides could use some work.

Wow! We loved Pink's! What a menu! So many hot dogs to choose from, we had to have seconds! It was fun to watch the busy kitchen and what looked (to the untrained eye) like organised chaos! The system (choose which hot dog, order, watch them get ready and pay) worked well while we were there. There was a casual... More

I had friends who had toured LA tell me I had to try Pink's (the original on La Brea). After trying a chili dog with onions I'm not sure what the bid deal is. It was an OK chili dog but nothing memorable. It certainly wasn't worth the time and trouble to get there and find a place to park.... More

Not sure why people get in line. Tiny dogs for lots of money. Usually full of tourists but it is LA and it is a scene.

Tried this famous place, was not real impressed. I prefer Wienerschnitzel over this place, but it was still a good chili dog.

It's impossible to find a food documentary about LA that doesn't mention Pinks. I'm happy to say it lived up the hype. The staff was very friendly and prices quite reasonable given the area. We got a chili dog and a America the Great dog and fries. There are a few indoor tables and a larger outdoor seating area with... More

Pink's (aka Pink's Famous Chili Dogs): A Hollywood Legend Since 1939 on La Brea, is a legendary institution when it comes to hot dogs. My absolute favorite (so far), is the special Mullholland Drive: a 9" stretch dog with grilled onions and mushrooms, nacho cheese ...and crispy bacon on top. It is awesome! The staff is fast and efficient, and... More
