    “A Hollywood Legend Since 1939,” they serve a vegan veggie dog named after a LA-based radio and TV personality. Become part of history by braving the lines and order the Patt Morrison Baja Vegan Dog Read more

    The whole menu. This is a once a year treat. Might as well do it up right. Native New Yorkers will have the Carl Reiner - mustard and sauerkraut. It goes well with the Emeril Dog.

    My first time here ... Arrived 4pm on a Tues, with only a few people in line. Tried the Chicago Polish Spicy Dog (mustard, relish, lettuce, onion, tomato), fries & a diet cream soda. All delicious!!

    Mornings are a good time to beat the line - between 10 & 11 am. Chili cheese dog with everything is a must, don't be afraid to try some of the fancier dogs & sausages too! And chili cheese fries!!!!

    I got the Mulholland Drive dog that came with bacon. The bacon was crispy and delicious, but also took over the entire flavor of the chili dog. I kind of wish I had just gotten the plain chili dog.

    Best hot dogs in the West since 1939! Try one of their exotic and unique specialty dogs like the Huell Howser Dog or the Planet Hollywood Dog, but leave time - the line can last an hour even at 2 A.M.

    There's always a line but it's still worth it. Get the hot dogs with the crazy toppings well worth it every time. Get the onion rings always good.

    If in LA you have to go here! There is ALWAYS a line (even at 1am!) so be prepared! Get the Pastrami Dog with mustard onions and tomatoes. Sooo delicious! This is the place where LA gathers!!

    Rosie O'Donnell dog isn't overwhelming. Royal Dog is for those who need two dogs. Chef Jamie's dog is super messy and has fajita mix, ranch, BBQ sauce, and guac. Get frings. It's good to try once only

    A great stop for variety. The times I've been had a long line in the afternoon (up to an hour). Got lucky the most recent visit...but it was 11pm :p You gotta try it at least twice imho.

    a quintessential hot dog pilgrimage, huge menu with a lot of options which is probably for the better given the line. If you are visiting Universal Studios, there is a Pink's on CityWalk with no line.

    Ask for 4-12" wieners in a tortilla with chili cheese, bacon strips, jalapeño, grilled onions, mushrooms, roasted red peppers, wrapped & topped w/ nacho cheese, chopped tomatoes. Grace special.

    Founded back in 1939 as a street cart, Pink’s has attracted a wide range of celebrities over the years, a fact that it proudly touts with the celeb-themed dogs on its menu.

    The Fonda: chili, cheese, onions, and mustard. I substituted relish for onions...delicious! The line is long, but moves fast and definitely worth the wait! They accept credit cards.

    Yes the lines are long and they only take cash but its one of those places you just have to cross off your list when you're in LA. :) I've been to three different locations and they never disappoint!

    Don't expect the best hot dog you've ever had in your life. They're good, glad to have scratched it off the must do LA list, but not in any hurry to go back. Also, the line is never not long.

    Damn good dogs. The line is long after 8pm but less busy around 6(during the week). Any dog is good just bring cash. Good service too.

    Greatest hot-dogs ever. It's 24 hour, so the wait can sometimes be long seeing as it is in LA. Highly suggest the chili cheese dog.

    Best way to eat the 12" Jalapeno dog is to start from the ends & work your way in :) & add a cup of jalapeno to crunch on after each savoring bite!

    Chicago Spicy Polish dog is my favorite. You can actually taste the meat as opposed to the others with so many topping you can't taste the meat (as much).

    Lazy people complain about the line because you actually have to stand and be away from your tv for an extended period. Its delicious and worth missing reruns for. Back to Pasadena complainer!

    If you think adding chili and cheese to your hot dog and fries is a good idea, it is. But beware, you're in for a slooow afternoon.

    Make sure you give yourself plenty of time, the wait during the week is usually around an hour just to order due to a long line. The weekend wait is longer so make a day of it.
