ABOUT PINK'S HOT DOGS
Pink's have been serving up our legendary hot dogs for over 74 years! Everyone from movie stars and musicians, well-known dignitaries and businessmen, to housewives and families… all have savored Pink's.
It all started back in 1939. Paul Pink purchased a modest large-wheeled pushcart and parked it on La Brea Avenue in Hollywood. Although, the effects of the Great Depression were still being felt, a legend was born. For just 10 cents, you could enjoy Pink's Hollywood perfection - a large warm bun hugging a juicy oversized hot dog liberally topped with mustard, onions and of course, thick savory chili.
As always, Pink's takes enormous pride in outstanding quality and scrumptious taste. You, like others at Pink's humble stand in 1939, can place an order and have it in your hands within 30 seconds or less. We hope you enjoy a bite of Hollywood history at Harrah's Resort Southern California!
