LA's 10 Must-Try Hot Dog Spots

Does Portillo's make your list?
Maybe it's because Memorial Day has come and gone, marking the unofficial start to summer, or maybe it's because baseball season is in full swing. All we know is this: everyone seems to have hot dogs on the mind. Whether you like yours artisanal, Chicago-style or smothered in chili (or even sprinkled with furikake), we've got your fix. Read on for our readers' ratings and reviews of some of the best hot dog spots around town, and be sure to let us know about your favorites in the comments.

  3. Yes, I agree. How did Dog Haus not even make the list? I'd take Dog Haus over Slaw Dogs every time.

  5. These are the top 10 rated hot dog places from the Zagat guide, based on food rating. I agree that Dog Haus is great, and it's in the guide but not rated yet, so it didn't appear in the top 10. Pink's is #11. A good reminder to vote for your favorites! And thanks for telling us about them here.

  8. It might surprise some, but five Guys has a fantastic Hot Dog. I go for the dogs as often as for the burgers.

  9. As a former New Yorker, I still favor Sabrett's hot dogs over most in LA and was delighted to find them, served up in a steamed bun with kraut or Sabrett onion sauce, at New York Bagel and Deli, 2216 Wilshire Blvd. in Santa Monica. They also sell them uncooked by the pound.
