Hot dog on bun with. . .

Anyplace in LA (preferably West LA) where you can get a good "kosher-style" hot dog on bun with mustard and sauerkraut to go?? Can get this all over New York-why not LA? Last place I tried was Izzy's (UGH!!) on Wilshire and 15th in Santa Monica and they wanted $5.35 because it came with a side of baked beans which I didn't want and they were just dumbfounded as to what to do. Are they no places where you can get a hot dog and a potato or kasha knish to go?? I've given up. DON'T mention Canter's or Weinerschnitel etc.
thanks.

    How about Nathan's Famous, 9216 W. Pico Blvd.?

      ...on Sepulveda, corner of Palms. Sabrett dogs. Even has tables for sit-down. Note, too, thread below that asserts that the ribs sold there as well are good. I wouldn't know because it is "dogs" I go for.

      Of course, there's Pink's on La Brea (I know, not exactly westside) and another favorite of mine, Tail O'The Pup on San Vicente just up from the Beverly Center/Cedars-Sinai.

      Want up-scale ? Nate & Al's Deli on Beverly Drive in Beverly Hills has a terrific "dog" plate with L.A's best potato salad and cole slaw. Not cheap, though; after all you are in the Hills of Beverly.

        Maybe you should consider hamburgers.

          Jeff,
          Don't know the cross street and I've never been to this Nathan's. Curiously, many years ago, there was a really big Nathan's on Ventura in the Valley but it couldn't make a go of it. Part of the problem was they were competing against the franks which were being sold in grocery stores altho purists said that they were not as good because they lacked the goose grease (?). You've probably figured out where to get egg creams, yes?

            It's a few blocks east of Beverwil.

            If you're a Costco member, their dogs with kraut aren't too bad. Wonder why they switched from Sinai to Hebrew National...

              They probably get a better deal with Sinai.
