AutoFry in Action: Pink's Hot Dogs

Betty White with her Signature Pink's Hot DogAnyone that has ever been to Hollywood has probably made a visit to the local landmark and internationally famous, Pink’s Hot Dogs. For 75 years customers have been driving to Pink’s for hot dogs, burgers and fries.  Celebrity fans of Pink’s include Michael Jackson, Marlon Brando, Whoopi Goldberg, Tom Hanks, and even Food Network stars, Guy Fieri and Bobby Flay.  Beloved actress, Betty White even ahs her own signature hot dog available at Pink's, The Betty White NAKED Dog.


But what makes Pink's Hot Dogs' menu so special? The answer to that depends on who you ask…

According to, The Guide for the Good Life, it’s the “ripe, bursting-with-flavor beef hot dogs.”, Foodies Who Travel, says it’s the “an ever changing menu of ‘super star dogs’ you can keep coming back to Pink’s to taste the celebrity dujour.”

And a quick look through Yelp reveal Pink’s hot dogs to be “good and flavorful,” “with every bite giving a beautiful, juicy snap” and “classic quality ingredients at affordable prices.”

[They are] heavenly.”

With locations on both the west and east coast, Pink’s hot dogs are more accessible than ever before.  So we want to know, have you been to Pink’s?  What did you think?  If you’re planning a trip, what are you most excited to try?

Ah yes, who needs a healthy New Year resolution when there are bacon bits to be devoured.
