Annie wrote a very nice review about her trip to Carney’s on Sunset.
“It was 11 p.m. and we had come out of a play at the Pantages and we were so hungry because we missed dinner. This looked interesting like an old train boxcar. When we pulled up and saw it was hamburgers and hot dogs we hesitated because it was so late and we were thinking the spicy chili on the food would keep us up but we were tired and hungry so we tried it. We each got a hot dog and added onions, mustard, chili, cheese and sauerkraut. My husband must have had a brain freeze because he never adds sauerkraut or chili to anything and as we looked at the food we thought…we are going to pay for this later by eating a ton of TUMS. I had a glass of Chardonnay and the glass was really little but the man behind the counter filled it to the top.
We ate the hot dogs and they were so good and the fries that came with it were so good, too! We looked around and more people were coming in though it was near midnight. Some were dressed elegantly and some just normal but everyone was getting those chili dogs or hamburgers which looked awesome like an In and Out Burger.
We looked at each other and decided to get a second one each and when I said I wanted another glass of wine one man told the other to fill my glass “to the top”! Ha!
We did not need any TUMS and had zero heartburn. Slept great. Will definitely go back!”
No TUMS is a great thing, we agree! We’re glad you had a great experience at Carney’s, Annie. Thanks for the lovely review!
Throwback Thursday Fan Recognition from 2011! Pilar B. filled us in on her Sunset Strip Carney’s trip. Check it out.
“How many times did I go up and down Sunset and see this big a$$ yellow train? Must have been a lot of times that I’ve missed the train. Well anyways, so I craved a hot dog and remembered this place. SOOO I looked up their website to see what is on their menu (something I do prior to eating at establishments) and off I went.
I was a little excited because I thought the train was super cool, you know the whole ambiance thing. I don’t know call me stuck in a (theme-like mind) but whatever, I liked it.
I tried the Spicy Style and the Carney’s hot dogs. Both were delicious! I totally forgot about the frozen chocolate dipped banana, therefore, I must return for my next train ride
Parking is in the rear (thank goodness) especially being on Sunset. All menu items are affordable (for my budget that is) and the staff are friendly. It does get packed because after I ordered and sat down, a grip load of people arrived.”

Fan recognition time! Carney’s fan, Maegan, proves to be very loyal in her choice of restaurants. Here’s her Yelp review:
“I don’t know why everyone always raves about Pink’s. F**k Pink’s. If you want the best hotdog in LA you go to Carney’s. I love the fact that it’s a train car. My favorite location is the one on Sunset by Saddle Ranch. I used to live in LA and after going out on Friday and Saturday nights I’d come here when the late night munchies hit. My personal favorite to order here is Chicagoan with the burgers though I always order the double cheese burger without the chili. The fries always taste hot and fresh, like they’re so good you don’t care that you’re burning your tongue and fingers eating them. If you’re looking for some great late night food and don’t feel like Mel’s or Pink’s I’d recommend here. It’s a must anytime I make it back to LA.”
Thanks so much for the support, Maegan!

These smiling faces probably look very familiar. They are the Wolfe Bros. aka co-owners of Carney’s! They carry on the tradition that their dad started way back in 1975.
