“Big Fan”
Reviewed February 10, 2013

A little expensive for a dog, fries and a drink, but I love the Dr. Browns drinks and standing in line in the rain behind a hundred people has a little story just by itself. Everyone who has ever lived in Hollywood has eaten here. It's cool outside on the patio and it's really a MUST if you visit LA. Unique experience kind of like the Varsity in Atlanta. Pay attention in line or you'll catch hell.

What can I say that hasn’t already been said about Pinks, there food is so good and the prices aren’t bad, the lines can be long but are certainly worth the wait, I go to pinks anytime in the LA area (live in northern CA) and they never disappoint!

“Crazy great tasting food!”
Reviewed February 4, 2013 via mobile

We stopped for lunch because of the 'hype' and we were hungry.

Though hos good can they really be... They were freaking awesome!! My son had a Brooklyn Pastrami swiss cheese hot dog and I had the bacon chili cheese burger and honestly they were delicious, highly fattening but yummy.

The walls are covered in star's photos which makes you wonder if they walk around with their 'head shots' just do they can endorse business!

“I hate to say it, but...”
Reviewed January 26, 2013

You know what? I hate to say it, but I think this place is more hype than good food. A friend of mine was visiting from NY and wanted to try this place. He and I agreed that while the hot dog was alright, it wasn't worth waiting in line a half hour for!
