Hot Dogs Downtown
I'm having a mean hot dog craving today. Anyone know of a place with reasonable afternoon parking that can provide me my fix?
I used to work in Hollywood and came to LOVE Skooby's on Hollywood... but honestly, Hot Dog on a Stick or even 7-11 might even fill this need.
Looking to get my nosh on by about 2.
In the late 70's and early 80's I remember Chronis having a great dog. Big, juicy, and lots of snap. Sadly, I went searching for that memory about 2-3 years ago, and bought two dogs that I found were barely edible-thin, off-tasting, and well just not good in any way. I would recommend a 7-11 or gas station dog over theirs. Sad, but true. IMHO the best dog these days is at Carneys or if you prefer the kosher variety, at Costco.
I don't know if your memory is serving you correctly, but chronis uses the Hoffey #17 (i beleive) ALL the good dog places use it.
I admit I wasn't a patron back in the 70's and 80's. But I have been a patron for the past 10 years or so. And I haven't had a bad dog once!
It's a classic dog, small but filling. Not some HUGE dog from god knows where. It's still got the bite, most place serve you caseless dogs. Which means taste-less!
well next time you don't have to leave Downtown. Simple head for the fashion district (seventh & Los Angeles Street) and go to the Santee Alley. Just look around for the first Bacon Wrapped Hot Dog Vendor you see. There are a few there they simple consist of a burner, hot plate and supplies. Yeah they are totally illegal but they make some DAMN good dogs.
Now if it has to be LEGAL reaturaunt I recommend heading to Burbank. Larry's Chili Dog & Grill 3122 W. Burbank Blvd. Burbank Ca. 91505. They got a dog way better than Skooby's.
Now if your looking for an adventure I recommend heading east to Whittier Blvd. in East Los Angeles. There is a stand called Nick & George Chronis that makes a classic dog. I would say it is the best kept secret for dog lovers in L.A. Corner of Keenan & Whittier blvd. Been there since 1945!
re: reality check
Hi, The closest stop is the Hollywood and Highland Station.
Go EAST on Hollywood 0.2 miles to Skooby's
I would call and verify this with Scooby's.
6654 Hollywood Blvd, Los Angeles, CA
