Pink's Hot Dogs is probably the most famous hot dog stand in Los Angeles! Located near the corner of Melrose and La Brea, Pink's can be found by looking for a crowd of people and following the aroma of fresh meaty chili and soft hot dog buns.
Pink's is unlike any other hot dog stand in America. For example, it has its own parking lot attendant. It has been in the same location for 62 years. It is not unusual to see a Rolls Royce pull up to Pink's (the chili dog ordered will be for the occupant, not the chauffeur). Movie stars, well-known dignitaries, struggling musicians, businessmen, housewives, school children... all have savored Pink's Famous Chili Dogs.
Pink's Hot Dog Stand is a quick lunch spot, a nostalgic trip into the past and a delicious experience. Pink's is definitely a landmark in Hollywood!
Haters gonna hate, but there's a reason why Pink's is an institution in L.A. I would recommend keeping it simple and stick a basic hot dog or a chili dog. If you're feeling really adventurous you can try the pastrami dog burrito.
Pink's is probably one of the most well-known establishments in LA & for a good reason. Not only have they catered to the stars for decades, but they serve up some of the best hot dogs in Cali! Just be prepared to wait in lines during any time of the day!
Great place to take friends from out of town. Just be sure you have plenty to talk about as you wait in line. Toppings here rock.
Seriously you stand in line! This experience is worth the 2am line for a chili dog or my favorite: Chicago dog. Eat well and enjoy the late night talks w strangers doing the same.
I'm not a fan of Pink's. I think the quality of the dogs themselves is severely lacking- on par with something you would find at 7-11. There are many interesting toppings available, but if you're starting with a mediocre dog, how great will it really be? Certainly not worth a wait in a long line. It's a tourist trap.
Don't go all the times i theretically could, but yeah like the place.
I love the dining experience in here, it can get personal and the satisfaction will be off the roof. They have great food in here.
Classic Hot Dogs. I come here when ever I get a chance. I really enjoy all their hot dogs. I hate how there's rarely ever parking around there so you need to do a lot of walking. And there is usually a big line.
Excellent Food! – I'm not really a fan of high calorie diets but this one just warrants an exception! Great hotdogs and side of fries. You cant go wrong with pinks!
love it. – I love it, and would eat here constantly if not for the outrageous lines...rather go to the mall.
