Pink’s Is Special
Popular Private Tour Lunch Stop – Pink’s Hot Dogs
When our guests begin their private tour of Los Angeles in the morning it more often than not runs past lunch. There is that much to see and do in L.A. and our custom tour approach means we can take our guests sightseeing anywhere they want. When hunger strikes, though, it’s time to find someplace to eat that is particular to Los Angeles. We know a number of great lunch time stops throughout the city. When we are in Hollywood, though, the top of our list is Pink’s. The large food stand is always crowded in its central location near the shopping mecca known as Melrose and on a major thoroughfare into and out of Hollywood. For non-vegans it is good food at reasonable prices with a strong flavor of celebrity and history. From a small walking cart parked at the same location back in 1939, Paul Pink has created a landmark. Known not just for the small building adored by the world of Los Angeles lovers but for the food. Kosher hot dogs, hamburgers and fries are what is on the menu. The toppings are creative and tasty. The line moves quickly but not so fast our guests can’t enjoy the celebrity headshots lining the walls everywhere. Everyone eats at Pink’s at one time or another. For those of us who live here and go to late shows anywhere near Hollywood then Pink’s is great because it stays open until 2am (3am on weekends). While we maintain a list of fine restaurants, hip, chic, fancy places that our guests use to plan their dinners while they are in Los Angeles, when it comes to lunch time we are more inclined to lead them to places like Pink’s which they will really enjoy and they will always remember.
