Best hot dog in LA?

lucindamichele | May 25, 2009 10:19 AM

Hi. Some friends & I are planning a three-location tour of LA hot dog stands, and we're hitting Pink's, Oki-Dog, & Skooby's in one afternoon. It's a truly horrible idea, and so once we came up with it, we HAD to do it. Suicidal? Yes...but also tasty. But in discussing it, lots of other folks said, "You should go should go there..." We've been told Yaki's, Let's Be Frank, The Stand, Tommy's, Vicious Dogs, Papoo's, and Carney's. I just thought of Hot Dog On A Stick...

I know in LA the burger has been elevated to a gourmet art form, but the hot dog seems to have so far escaped this fate. That said, what do people think are the BEST hot dogs in LA?

I'm partial to Skooby's. And am I alone in abhorring Pink's?

Here's our event, you all should's just a buncha folks getting together for what we've dubbed the Hot Dog Death March. Cuz we're just fans of LA and its hot dog stands.
