The story behind Pink’s Hot Dog is worth knowing. Similar to the Chicago hot dog genesis story, the Pink’s dog arose in the days of the Great Depression. The owners, husband and wife, pushed a hot dog cart in the streets of LA. He did dogs, she made chili and added value, it was a hit.
The line is lot of fun- it built a powerful feeling of hot dog anticipation that reminded me of home in Chicago. The ten inch with chili is a deserved classic- I would stick to that. I found a small cup of pastrami an approachable accompaniment.
