When it is sweltering hot in LA and there’s a pool calling your name, what do you do? Stand in line for 20 minutes with the roomie in 90 degree heat at Pink’s of course!
WHY you ask?? Because located on La Brea and Melrose, Pink’s is a Los Angeles institution. That’s why.
With a laundry list of options, toppings and sides to choose from, you can kind of understand the line stretched around the block. Celebrity clientele and renown dog-dome have made this place famous, while the inexpensive price point and enjoyable staff keep people coming back.
Although it is cash only which can be annoying, my veggie-dog with grilled onions made me a fan and I know this will be one of the first stops when a friend comes to visit. In order to understand a place, you have to eat like the people anyway, right?
