PINK'S

We love to watch the food network and they have this Drive In's and Diners show that shows all these cool places to eat at all over the US. They showed this place called Pink's in Hollywood. The coolest little place. Been in business for almost 70 years. It's a little hotdog place and for whatever reason, I love hotdogs.. and chili. So I'm a pretty happy camper with a chili dog.


So, Saturday we decided to check it out. You can't see the line in the pics (which wraps around the building), but we waited for 45 minutes and the line didn't even seem that long, so be prepared if you venture out there. They prepare your hotdog right when you order in front of you and then there's only one person ringing up the orders who may have been the slowest moving cashier ever. It was a bit pricey, a long wait, and quite a drive out there. But ssoooooooooo totally worth it, at least once. It was dang tasty and with the added nostalgic we were happy with what we got. Lots of famous people have eaten there and there's autographed photos all over the inside. It was about $17 for us to eat, so like I said, it's a bit pricey, but worth it for at least a one time thing (especially if you like chili dogs).
I got the chili cheese dog, fries and a cream soda.
Nate got the 'Today Show' dog, onion rings and a cream soda. Here's a link to their awesome menu. Check out the Super Specials...

I have been to Tommy's and was pleased with it's chili deliciousness. It hit me like a brick though so I make sure to bring the tums.
