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.
classic high school foood – personally prefer cheeseburger food is super for what it is!
Amazing! – I was very pleased for the quality of the Hot Dog's. The prices were fair and the waiting time was minimal.

Yammy – I'm a fan of hotdogs I know a good dog when I see one and here my friends you can find great ones. Try everything and you will be amazed...
PINK'S IS THE BEST !! – I'm a Chicago native although a Cal. resident for 43 years.. I've sampled alot of dogs over the years and have a VERY sensitive stomach !!.. First visit to Pink's today and had the spicy Chicago sausage and split an order of fries with my wife.. Thought I'd need some Mylanta later.. UH, UH.. The BESTT hot sausage I've ever had and not a "Ping" of indigestion !!! PINK'S is OUTSTANDING.. You naesayers ain't got a clue.. "I'LL BE BACK !!!!!!!
put salsa on the dogs – i really like pinks. the lines always seem to be a little long but when you get to the dogs it is worth it. can't go wrong with the fries and rings. try some salsa on that dog.
GO ~ IF YOU'RE NOT IN A HURRY... – WHEN YOU VISIT LA; GOTTA GO TO PINKS ~
BUT GO EARLY! ALWAYS BUSY; BUT YOU CAN COUNT ON YOUR FOOD BEING FRESH ~ IF YOU'RE NOT IN A HURRY!
Over-hyped hotdog and best guacamole in SoCal – Finally my family and I got three hotdogs from Pinks. I don't get it. Outside of the long line and chatting with the people in line, I don't get what's good about the hotdog. Okay it's clean and a landmark. Count me in and my family to continue looking for a good hotdog. It's not worth the hype or the wait. Oh the guacamole is the best we've had in SoCal.
Pinks is the best, especially the chili, I always have two.
See you thre next time
