“Overrated”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 21, 2013

Everybody raves about Carneys, it's mentioned on every tour and in every guide book so I was eager to visit. I must say that I was disappointed. It is a lot more rickety inside than I expected and to be truthful I was eager to leave. The food was very average!

“Drunk food at its best”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 14, 2013

This is a must stop for late night drunken food. Chili cheese fries and hot dogs are perfect grease filled wonderfulness that you need after the bars. Probably won't taste the same before 11pm so be warned if you are not under the influence, better idea to go somewhere else.

“Perhaps the best food value in Hollywood”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 9, 2012

Famous for its hot dogs - and deservedly so. They also make a good burger. Hot dogs, hot links, and chiliburgers all come in at less than $4. Ingredients are very fresh and all food made to order.

The location is tough to beat. Plenty of window seats looking out on Sunset Boulevard and ample parking behind the restaurant.

Great place for a quick bite any time of the day. Friendly service and good quality food.

LA has tons of much better places to eat. Sure, its cute and its on the strip but the food is so so.
