Need help with name of hot dog stand

Sarah Aug 30, 2012 08:55 PM

Been wracking my brain over the hot dog stand shaped like a hot dog on San Something street in west-ish LA -- might have been torn down by now. It stood alone in a sea of high rise office/condo buildings...

    Tail o' the Pup... was on La Cienega and then moved to San Vicente (your "San Something" street).

    Not torn down, according to Wikipedia, but in storage in Torrance and may be relocated/reopened someday (of course they've had 6+ years to do so already, so unfortunately chances may be slim...).

        Yes, moved to San Vicente from La Cienega when they built theBeverly Center. Long gone.

              Consering how well Pinks does despite horribly poor service and an ugly stand, you would think this would be a gold mine.
