Best Chili Dogs and Fries in Greater Los Angeles

Okay everyone talks about Pinks and even Carney's. They are all fine but to me Pinks especially is overly hyped. Yeah they have this dog and that dog like the Guadalajara dog and so forth but big deal. I think Pinks tastes just fine but I don't find it exceptional like people say and I don't think it's worth waiting in a line that is 15 to 25 people deep. I think Pinks is trendy but has a good product but not as good as the hype. Well in Alhamba, yes Alhamba, a suburb of LA, on the east side, there is a place called Tops Jr with the best tasking chili for hot dogs and fries. If you don't live in Alhambra or within the area or neighboring cities I don't expect people to go from the west side to the east side just to eat altho the food is awesome there. I was just saying if I had to choose between Pinks, Carney's and Tops Jr it would be Tops Jr. I don't picture snobby west side people who love waiting in line 20 people deep to go to the east side and eat at a dive like Tops Jr but if you are a real chili dog and fry fan go to Tops in Alhamba on Main near Fremont. About 200 yards east of Fremont. It's great. Oh Okie Dog is another one. Pretty good food but vagrants go there and bums. I don't mind the bums and vagrants really but just don't expect trendy West Side people there with their nice BMWs and Mercedes.
