Best time to eat Pink's?

I am going to LA in a few weeks and am wondering what the best time to go to Pink's is? I hear there is supposed to be a long line and was hoping to go at a time when it was a little less crowded. Thanks.

  1. 9:30am when they first open.
    No line, I was the first customer yesterday (Saturday). Plenty of parking and no lines.

    1. Despite what CH's will say, the out of towner's I took there loved it.
      I was also satisfied with my mild Polish dog with the works.

      1. Before I read the inside of your post I was going to say: After you've waited in line a half an hour, you'll be hungrier!

        1. Clearly the best time is after you have obtained some local notoriety. Then you show up with a glossie and a Sharpie and they love you.

            Local notoriety is correct, seems like on the wall of fame there was a high percentage of newscasters and no sighting of David and Victoria Beckham or Paris Hilton pics.

          2. After 9pm on Sunday is good, especially if it's raining

                as my drama students have been saying for weeks: bite your tongue!
                No, seriously- it's good trash, but it's trash. Once a year is enough.
