save your dollars and your patience. Go to Ralphs and buy some Nathan's kosher dogs. No hotdog is worth waiting in a line like that. Angelenos have such a skewed view of history, we will buy into anything that has a ""history."" I say, so what if orson welles ate there. phooey on youey.

Whether its thier chili dogs and burgers or thier expected 30 minute line at 2 o' clock in the morning, Pinks has held a place in my heart ever since my father began taking me there 25 years ago. The charm in this admittedly ""Hole in the Wall"" restaurant, with its quaint dining area with cover shots of well know actors that have eaten there, has provided this Pinks enthusiast with many memories. Whether it has been after a night at the Pantages Theatre, or or just passing through after a visit with friends in Thousand Oaks,(I live in Ontario,CA) Pinks had always been there and hopefully will always be there for years to come, so that someday I too can take my children there.
A must stop for all who visit Hollywood, or are just passing though...

My visit to Pink's was ruined by the horrible service. There was no line, but it was impossible to get anyone's attention. We had to go inside to finally flag someone down, and then we were reprimanded for not ordering from outside. Just placing the order was like Saving Private Ryan's first twenty minutes. That aside, the food was terrific.

Great hot dogs. I'm gonna come back for more so that I can taste everything on the menu.
The drawback though is waiting in the long line. (It's always packed!). But it's well worth it.

This is THE BEST hot dog stand in Los Angeles, some may say that the line at times may be a bit long but as soon as you bite down into whatever it is you've ordered you'll forget about all of that. This palce should be a Landmark. If you ever have the chance to come here don't pass it up.
everything we thought it would be! We first saw Pinks on the PBS special the hotdog show and it was the first place we knew we wanted to visit when we planned our LA trip. We were not disappointed from the vintage look and feel as you approach the lines to the wait and the experience of ordering and recieving that delicous food. Loved every second, only wish we could have fit a second visit in before we left town.
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.
