Pink's Hotdog in Los Angeles, CA



At the same location for 73 years !   Pink's is a family-owned hot dog stand that started in 1939.  Pink's chili dogs, complete with a large warm bun, oversized hot dog, mustard, onions and thick chili sold for 10 cents each in 1939.








Jeff and I drove 40 miles from where we live to check this place out.  This is in Los Angeles, California at the corner of Melrose and La Brea. No one will miss this place as soon as you turn the corner. Just follow the crowd of people lined up along the street and the aroma of  fresh meaty chili and soft hot dog buns.









You order here...


and watch the servers prepare your order ...


enjoy looking at signed photos of famous Hollywood stars who have been to this place ...






this is my order ...


Pink's hot dogs have been specially made for Pink's by Hoffy since 1939. They are all-beef and have a natural casing that makes them snap when you bite into them.




this is Jeff's choice ...


we shared this order of onion rings ...



Pink's still gives that very same quality now as then... mouth-watering chili, generously topping an all-beef hot dog with mustard and onions. Quality and service (an average Pink's chili dog can be ordered, prepared and delivered to the customer in less than 30 seconds!) have been the two reasons Pink's has not only survived, but become famous.





It is not unusual to see a Rolls Royce pull up to Pink's (the chili dog ordered will be for the occupant, not the chauffeur!). Movie stars, well-known dignitaries, struggling musicians, businessmen, housewives, school children... all have savored Pink's Famous Chili Dogs






this is the small dining area, but most people stayed outside enjoying California sun ...





It is definitely a landmark in Hollywood, California and I am so glad I get a taste of good meal and history !
