Pink’s Hot Dog Stand: it’s worth the heartburn

Watch more Los Angeles videos at

One place in LA is synonymous with hot dogs: Pink’s.  Since the 1930’s, this place has been serving up their greasy goodness to Angelenos and travelers alike.  It stays open late for those who need a little food after a night on the town, but I would not suggest going then.  The line can go down the block at night.  For a faster wait, go in the afternoon, between lunch and dinner.  They have more options than hot dogs, but why get a burger or Italian beef when this restaurant is known for hot dogs?  If you feel really adventurous, you can order one of their celebrity-named dogs, like the Rosie O’Donnell dog.  Los Angeles is all about the rich and famous, so of course they would name food products after them.  No matter what you get, it will taste pretty good.  Just don’t plan on running a marathon right after eating here.  In fact, plan on having a nap post-Pink’s.

  1. Great Pink’s tribute Robert! Pink’s is one of the things I miss most about living in LA! A chili dog, chili cheese fries, and a black cherry soda and I’m in heaven. Truly a local treasure 🙂
