Spiciest Polish Sausage in LA

reality check Oct 1, 2010 03:11 PM

Who has the Spiciest Polish Sausage in LA? As a reference point, I've tried Pink's and I think it's a mild to medium spiciness.

      I loved WF, and I love spicy food. but their Spicy Polish was just too darn hot for me!! Couldn't even feel my mouth or taste anything for awhile after eating one.

      I used to loves me their Turkey Dogs...two Toms, MCO baby!!

      Reality check, Fab's in Reseda has a spicy polish, I believe. Good luck in your quest!!

        Yes, I loved the WF but since it has gone out of business, most people may not have had the chance to try it.

        Fabs is one of the most overrated/overhyped restaurant in LA. I've would rather drive to Costco and get their Kirkland brand hot dogs and polish, than go to Fabs again.

          Funny that you say you don't like the Fab polish sausage, but loved the WF one. My understanding is that Fab gets its polish sausage from the same purveyor as WF.

          I love the Fab spicy polish sausage. It's called the firecracker and quite spicy.

            Where did I say I had the spicy polish at Fabs? Nowhere, though I understand why you may have assumed, I had the polish as fabs.

            I went to fabs once; had the ripper and Chicago dog and was very underwhelmed. A complete waste of time and money.

        I could handle the Weiner Factory spicy Polish (yes it was good).
        The heat on the spicy Polish at Pink's is it, I have a hard time handling it.

          I know Pink's doesn't get a lot of love on this board, but their spicy Polish is very good IMO. Quite hot too.

            The mild Polish sausage at Pink's is the best in LA.
            There...I've said it.

              does the spicy polish at pinks have a lot of "snap" -- or as much as their hot dogs?

                Plenty of snap on their Polish sausages. They're natural casing and pretty good size.

                  The spicy polish at Pink's has a snap. I've only had a spicy polish at Pink's-spiciest, so far, Carney's-not that spicy at all, and at Mustard's in Long Beach-pretty spicy.

                    I haven't been to Pinks in years, I'm not a fan of mediocrity combined with marketing, hype and loooooong lines. But all these positive comments about their polish sausage and the fact that the Texas born/N Cal raised GF has never been to Pinks, well guess we gotta go. Better be good guys/gals!!!

                      If you're near Knott's, go to that location, no lines and I'm guessing the same polish and hot dogs.

                        They open everyday at 9:30am.
                        That's the best time to go to avoid the lines.

              I think that The Sausage Kitchen & Huntington Meats both sell a pretty hot Polish sausage!
