This Sunday we celebrate the family adventure since December 28, 1975. Carneys is now beginning it’s 40th year of operation. None of this would be possible without the vision and sacrifice of John and Pat Wolfe who risked everything to open a hamburger/hot dog stand inside of a train car. Thanks to the continued support of our customers, Carneys has become an icon and a mainstay in the Los Angeles restaurant industry.
Five of us went to Carney’s this afternoon and ate those perfect dogs and I was thinking the same thing. I have had dogs all over the USA and have never had a better dog or better chili for a dog. Several years ago we did a drive-around and picked up Carney’s, Tommy’s, Tail’O the Pup, and Pink’s. Side-by-side Carney’s won us all on the dog and chili. Tommy’s was so bad next to Carney’s. People do not understand that many times when you are hungry and eat something it is the hunger that tells you that what ever you are eating is good. But side-by-side Carney’s blows away the rest. I also agree on the fries – very good. Sometimes I have the chili fries but not tonight because I wanted to save some room for later. When we were leaving Carney’s several families entered with little kids and appeared to be having a birthday party. Those balloons on the ramp out back were so cool. I thought to myself that Carney’s is a great place for a burthday party no matter how old you are.
The reason we went to Carney’s was we wanted to see how good desert at “Milk” over on Beverly would be following those dogs. Within 10 minutes after leaving Carney’s I had a vanilla shake – OMG! The best chilli dog (probably in the world) and the best shake in the solar system. I could not believe what a great night I had in Hollywood for less than $15.00. My wife had one scoop of chocolate on a cone and likewise – heaven!. We use to go to Famous Amos Cookies after Carney’s but that store closed years ago. Finally we have a perfect desert to follow Carney’s. The cookies at Milk are also a perfect desert for a night out doing bad things.

A man from the East Coast moves to Los Angeles. The character, known only as “Player”, later “Judas”, takes a major role in the game. In the intro of the game, he is on the phone with the (unknown to the player at the time) Los Angeles City Champ, Booke, telling him to meet at a fast-food restaurant named Carney’s Express Limited. He gives the protagonist the choice of three cars, one to pick, in the beginning of the game: a Nissan 240SX, 1983 Volkswagen Golf GTI, or Volkswagen Scirocco.
