I was very underwhelmed. I always see a line here so decided to visit. Ordered a Guadalajara Dog, Chili Burger, and Fries. I’ve had much better hot dogs from street vendors, but nothing was really bad just not really good either. The fries have the...orange seasoning which I’m not a fan of either. This was definitely interesting as part of my bucket list but, I won’t be going back.More

First time at Pink’s, we all loved it. Messy but fun and feels like stepping back in time. We got an I er from there and forgot our masks so staff gave us some for free.

Hot dogs always test better when you stand in line for 30 to 45 minutes smelling them being cooked and reading about the history of an LA landmark. Such was our experience as first-timers to Pink's. The line wrapped around the building, which helped us...in choosing our hot dogs from their extensive list of choices. I opted for the Philly Cheesesteak dog, which was very good. I give it 4 starts because they serve those orange french fries, which are simply awful in my opinion. Next time, I'll bring a bag of chips or swing by McDonald's for their fries.More

I've been coming here for decades and the food is good but not great. On this evening visit I ordered the chili cheese dog and requested pickles added. The hot dogs have a snap to them and the chili and ingredients are pretty good. It's...a good place to come by when you want a quick meal and it's popular among locals and tourists.More

I had been informed of Pink's for years but had never been before. It is a great experience. More dogs and toppings than you could mention but I had the Marlon Brando dog and a mushroom and swiss dog. My daughter had the Shaquille dog....Next time I return I want to try some of the others such as the Martha Stewart dog. One of the coolest parts is while you are waiting viewing the star wall of photos of celebrities. The staff doesn't even write down your order but they know how to keep up with what every order. You have to visit hereMore

The famous Pink's is a must go to place when in West Hollywood. Such an interesting history going back k to 1939. I had the Betty White Naked Dog because she had just passed away and I too love a naked dog however I had...it slathered with mustard. These kind of places are just such a part of history and fun to visit.More

I didn't know what to expect. The hot dog was fine. I didn't see anything particularly special about it. Maybe my expectations were too high because it was so overhyped.

I seriously don't get it; why anybody would wait in line for such a mediocre hotdog it is beyond me! That said, I'm from Chicago, so my hotdog expectations are considerably high. The bun is totally boring and the hotdog itself was pretty plain as...well and I needed to immediately return for more toppings. The kicker is that you have to wait in a serious line, at any time of day, to be totally underwhelmed in the end. To each his own, I guess.More

We are from Oregon visiting LA and I really wanted to eat at Pink's. It is a basic bucket list place for guys who like hot dogs. It did not disappoint. I had the Carl Reiner dog which is one of the more simple items...on the menu. Just dog, sauerkraut and mustard. it was great. The onion rings are also great. Best to study menu on line since there are so many different items.More

This long standing slice of Hollywood is definitely worth the wait you'll more than likely encounter, however the service is of quality and pace, so don't fret. They have a massive menu of various American food comforts including fries, burgers and of course hot dogs....There are pictures upon pictures of the history of Pinks as well as of all the celebrities who've enjoyed this gourmet spot. One of the best things about Pinks is you can add or subtract whatever they have to your food like guac on your fries or chips, extra onions, hold the cheese and so on. The beyond hot dog aka Patt Morrison is my go to here though you can do a beyond hot dog or regular however you like. They have a large outdoor patio area in back with tons of seating and a few parking spaces as well. There are restrooms for customers as well. You order inside and recieve your food in the order it's placed, which is usually pretty prompt. They have bottle beverages for purchase including soda, water, lemonade and more. Standard condiments can be placed in container like ketchup and mustard at a station just next to the counter as well as utensils and salt or pepper packets. Despise always being busy there are usually plenty of places to sit or places to park in the lot or close by on the street. Overall wonderful service and experience.More

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.
