Baseball, Hot Dogs and Apple Pie are all well-known American icons. In honor of National Hot Dog Day and summer around the city, we’ve put together a list of the best hot dogs in Los Angeles.

Pink’s Hot Dogs
709 N La Brea Ave
Los Angeles, CA 90039

You can’t have the phrases “hot dog” and “Los Angeles” in the same sentence without also including Pink’s. Pink’s has been a mainstay in LA and owned by the same family since 1939. From the Guadalajara Dog – relish, onions & and tomatoes, topped w/sour cream, to the Chicago Polish Dog mild or spicy, mustard, relish, onions, tomatoes, lettuce; nowhere else will you find a Martha Stewart Dog: 10″ Stretch Dog, relish, onions, bacon chopped tomatoes, sauerkraut & sour cream.

The Bacon-Wrapped Hot Dog>

Outside of almost any sporting event or concert in Los Angeles, you’ll find one of the best hot dogs LA has to offer, the Bacon-Wrapped Hot Dog. Sure, its slathered in mayo, ketchup, onions, mustards and everything else, but isn’t that the point? From gas stations to bars and everything in between, you’ll find this hot dog as satisfying as any one you’d find in a restaurant setting.

Fuddrucker’s DogZilla is as much about the yummy hot dog as it is about the fresh baked bun. Something about the bread at Fuddruckers, the scent of it being baked throughout the day brings you in off the street even if you didn’t have that plan in mind. Then it is grilled perfectly with a smidge of butter and split just right to nestle your DogZilla with enough room for you to personalize with fixins from the salad bar.

There is nothing that says springtime in Los Angeles more than sitting at the ball park enjoying a Dodger Dog. Whether you are a fan of the grilled or the steamed having just one is never enough. The Dodger Dog has been a staple of Dodger Stadium since their move to Los Angeles in 1958, it is estimated that in each season almost 2 million dogs are sold.
