Awesome Fun Staff – The food was pretty good. I'd go back for sure.
The staff was so friendly and the location is totally fun. You can order your food and eat it out on the street and watch the tourists get real nasty.
Tourist Fare – Skooby's hotdogs are nothing to write home about. It seems as if that is exactly what they intend for you to do after eating there. Located in the tourist district off Hollywood Blvd, this little dog stand serves up merely a decent dog to toursits wandering up down the star imbeded walk of fame. The garlic fries are soggy yet nicely drenched in garlic. The dogs themselves are on the small side for the price and are typical in every respect. Pinks or Carney's or Taste Chicago (If u want to make the drive) are the better choices. Parking can also be a problem at times. IF you are in the hood and feel like a hotdog fix Skooby's will fit the bill, but if you are looking for a truly delicious dog go elsewhere.
Outshines Pink's hands down! Tasty hotdogs, Great fries & dipping sauce washed down with Homemade Lemonade! – I disovered Skooby's 2 years ago and I have to say that the fries and garlic/roasted pepper mayo dipping sauce is heavenly!
The hotdogs are very good, better then Pink's that is for sure! But the fries and lemonade are what keep me from coming back when I get a craving for junk! Yum:)
Wash down the best fries and hot dogs in L.A. with a pint of homemade lemonade as you take in the fascinating sea of Hollywood Boulevard foot traffic. – This is one of the best spots in L.A. for a quick cheap bite. The fries are out of this world. If hot dogs aren't your thing, just go and have these fries. Forget Jar or In-n-Out; these fries are king. The slightly toasted hot dog buns always taste like they were just baked. The homemade lemonade compliments it all perfectly.
The employees (mostly attractive young local rock scenesters) are very friendly. However, do not expect fast-food speed as the process of transforming raw fresh potatoes into amazing fries right before your eyes requires several steps.
Seating is mainly at tables outdoors on the sidewalk. The location is very busy with all varieties of Hollywood foot traffic. The prim BMW folk will probably feel uneasy. The blaring music is mostly indie/punk rock, which I happen to love, but my parents would probably hate.
Chili Cheese Fries To Die For!!!! – The chili cheddar fries are to die for!!!! They serve you a HUGE portion heaped with chili and fresh cheddar cheese - you couldn't possibly eat it all. The chili doesn't have beans and has just the right amount of spice. The lemonade tastes freshly squeezed and not too sweet, which is how lemonade should be. I will definitely be going back whenever the craving hits me! Parking is aggravating, but worth it.
Best Dogs in L.A.!! – Definitely the best hot dog stand in L.A. The dogs don't spew out oil when you bite into them (unlike that "other" hot dog stand) and their fries are ultra-fresh. The garlic spread in the hot dog bun is only second to Zankou Chicken's. Definitely hits the spot after hitting a bar on Hollywood Boulevard!
Good dogs! – This is a tiny, but fun place to grab some grub. The dogs and fries are made fresh as is the lemonade. They use a seasoned salt for the fries to give them a little extra zip. Open late, so if you're on Hollywood Blvd. while bar-hopping, this is a great pit-stop.
Citysearch Editorial Review – This simple stand caters to industry workers by day, bar hoppers by night. A limited menu consists of five franks: the original with traditional toppings; a Guinness-based chili dog; a cheddar dog; a bacon-cheddar dog; a flour tortilla-wrapped quesadilla dog; and the garlic-lover's dog on toasted bread. French fries, a mix of strips and chips, come with aioli sauce, while hand-squeezed lemonade can be mixed with iced tea. Egg buns and breakfast burritos are morning-time options.
