CA Originals : Pink’s Hot Dog, Los Angeles

Not Rodeo drive nor some fancy juice shop. The biggest chance to spot an A-list Hollywood celebrity is at Pink’s Hot Dog.

What started as a pushcart in 1939 when the Great Depression was still shaking the country is today a hot dog institution in the City of Angels. Seven years later, Paul and Betty Pink, turned their cart into a brick and mortar on 709 North La Brea, where it’s still standing strong after 70 years. Celebrities, as well as locals, and tourist are lining up at Pink’s Hot Dog for hot dogs topped with Betty’s secret chili. And while few items have remained the same, new celebrity-named (anyone a Martha Stewart Dog or Ozzy Spice Dog?) hot dogs have joined the menu. Now run by the Pink siblings Pink’s hot dog has expanded its hot dog deliciousness to Las Vegas and two other locations in CA.
