Don't Leave Hollywood Without a Hot Dog from Pink's
In 1939, when Pink's sold its first hot dogs out of a pushcart in Hollywood, owners Paul and Betty Pink couldn't have imagined the icon it would become. By the '40s, the Pinks had built their brick-and-mortar location on La Brea and Melrose, where the original Pink's location still stands. The eatery has since been featured in plenty of TV shows and movies, as well as on the Food Network and the Travel Channel. There's a hot dog for everyone on the menu, from the classic chili dog to the Chicago Polish dog to the pastrami burrito dog, plus burgers and sides. The franchise has grown a lot since opening day and now exists in 15 locations around L.A., San Diego, Miami, Las Vegas, and more.
