Quest for the Best Dog

Steve Doggie-Dogg | Jun 2, 2004 10:10 PM


For the past couple of months, some friends and I have been on the quest for the best hot dog in Los Angeles. We've been documenting our dogs in our blog... Hot Dog Spot. So far we've hit the following joints. (In order from best to worst...)

Skooby's on Hollywood Bl
Carney's Studio City
The Stand in Encino
Papoo's Hot Dog Show in Toluca Lake
Nathan's Famous in Hollywood
and the infamous Pink's

Rather than fumbling about eating a bunch of average hot dogs hoping to stumble across the needle in the haystack, we'd prefer to go straight for the very best. The "snappy skin" is very important to us... rubbery, package dogs aren't what we're looking for. We got the tip for Skooby's from this board, so we're hoping for more great places like that.

Any suggestions for places we haven't hit yet?
