I love the hot dogs there! I took the kids and they loved them too. Old time sodas make the meal complete.

Like your wildest childhood dream. They even had something called the Harry Potter Dog. I stick to the polish dogs. It's like New York's Island hot dogs.

I've been living in LA for almost 3 years, and I've GOT to say Pinks is the best Hot Dog place EVER!!! I've traveled and lived in many sities as well as overseas, but theirs is absolutely delicious! It's totally perfect for those growling stumoachs, during the day and late at night. I've been during both times, but late at night is when lines are less long (the average wait is about 20-40 minutes). Even though the long lines might discourage you, it's well worth everything! I've been here over 10 times, and still love it as much as I did the first time!

There's a reason why when you ask Angelenos where to get a hot dog, they'll all almost inevitably point you towards Pink's. Not only is this place a famous local tradition, it's a fine dog! Anything you might want to put on a hot dog, they've got and they'll do it up right for you.

There is absolutely no other hot dog in the world like Pink's!! My absolute favorite is the footlong chili cheese dog with onions and mustard... add a little pastrami and you have a gastronomic delight!! Add some scrumptious chili cheese fries and a Bubble-Up to complete your dining enjoyment!! Of course, there is always a line at Pink's but it moves quickly and is WELL worth the wait!!

If you are looking for atmosphere, go somewhere else. If you want the best chili dogs in L.A., this is the place to go, just be prepared for a long wait if you go during lunch time.

Polish Sausage, Chili, Bacon, a Hamburger patty, Lettuce, Tomatoe, and Onion. No, this is not my shopping list it's what you will get on the Pink's burger.
Let's not even start about how good there seasoned french fries are. And the people who frequent there for movie-star to college student to transvestites, it's filled with great friendly people. The, sometimes 2 hr., wait in line is well worth the burger and the people you will meet and talk to.
I've been known to leave San Diego at midnight just to go up to L.A. and get one of these burgers. It's well worth the drive.

Pink's is a very unique place. The food is very good. Pink's offers about 25 different types of Hot Dogs. I enjoy eating at Pinks, however they are so good that if I did it often I would gain weight. Also many famous people eat at Pink's so bring your camera you never know who might show up.

The food was good but it was very costly. I got a parking ticket for parking on the streets because there wasn't any room in the lot. The line was awful. I waited more than a hour for hot dogs! If you want parking tickets and heartburn, eat at pinks.

It's a good hot dog, a damn good hot dog, but to some it's just not worth the wait. If you do feel like waiting and trying a hot dog that has become an LA staple, by all means go for it. You won't regret it unless you get a rubbery, somewhat stale hot dog but even then it's still pretty good. Get a bacon wrapped hot dog and top it off with chili and onions. Goes down well with a beer.

Pink's takes the right approach to a hot dog stand. Serve greasy hot dogs and hamburgers and pour chili all over everything. Add bacon to taste. Yum yum.

Having lived in the L.A. area for over 2 decades I have had the opportunity to visit Pinks often. It is simply the best there is. In my travels around the country, I have tried to find a dog that comes even close. I've failed miserably.

I now live in Orlando and only wish that Pinks was in Florida. Every time I visit L.A., no matter for how long or short a time, I make a point of going to Pinks for either a Mild Polish Dog with the works or a regular chili cheese dog.

Dayum, I miss it.

Pros: Incredible, Superlative, The Best

Cons: only one location

For the price, Pink's can't be beat for late night dining. If you don't want to deal with the slow service at Fred 62, The Kitchen's new menu has got you down, go to Pink's. Their hot dogs rock. They're not unnecessarily thick like all those ballpark franks that taste bad. Instead, they're very flavorful. Lots of condiments available. Meet interesting people.

The only place I'd typically stand in line for a hot dog is a baseball stadium, but these are worth a wait. The line is traditionally long, but the service is quick once you order. This family-owned stand serves all-beef hot dogs, orange cheese, onion rings and too many toppings to list. The menu has lots of options (such as burgers, burrito-like hot dogs, pastrami hot dogs and even a couple of items for vegetarians), but I recommend sticking with the chili-cheese dog.

OK, so I went--partly to appease an out-of-town guest who had her heart set, partly to be able to say I've been. Pink's is an L.A. classic, as you'll read on the menu while waiting in line. And you'll have plenty of time to read. We waited in line for over an hour, with tourists, screaming kids and exhaust fumes wafting from one of the busiest intersections in the city. The dogs were hot and fully loaded, but I can't say they were worth the wait. The patio/parking lot in the back doesn't make for a great dining experience. The best part, really, was the signed picture of Richard Simmons in the tiny indoor eating area. Wait till you see what he's wearing.
