Huge bonus points for location - it's in an old train car! Decor doesn't get much cooler. The hot dogs are delicious too, especially the one with slaw on it. Good parking, service. Great place!

Used to be a great place for burgers. Hot dogs are still okay but the last few times there the hamburger meat was paper thin and tasteless. Double cheeseburger came with one slice of cheese, I ask for another slice and they charged fifty cents more with a bad attitude to boot. The man that owned/managed(?) from a few years ago is not there. He built up a good business with good food and service. They must have sold the franchise and the new owners have gone on the cheap. I miss the place but will go elsewhere for a good hamburger.

Had a great burger and chili dog meal. Burger was bloody as hell and juicy to an insane degree. Chili dog was solid, using Hoffy dogs (the choice of all of LA's classic hot dog joints), but not great. For my money I'd stick with Chronis. Fries were great. Setting had tons of personality.

One sign of a good hot dog is if it snaps when you bite into it. There are many hot dog places in L.A. but only a few places do hot dogs right and Carney's is definitely one of the top hot dog places in the southland. Unlike another crowded hot dog stand, Carney's keeps their menu simple. I recommend the standard chili dog or the Chicagoan with relish, onions and mustard.

puts pinks to shame.
no standing in line and breathing tire dust.
nice snap when bitting into the dog, delicious steamed bread.
fresh cut tomato on the Carney Dog. Chili is pleasanlty digested.
view of sunset strip, global crowd, good choice of music at an enjoyable volume makes this place hard not to choose for a meeting place, international visitors to meet LA, or viewing girls from the strip.
and above all, the staff doesnt make you feel like you should have not smiled at them, they smile back like they are earning $100/year.

Owners are generally in attendance during daytime operation. This place serves the best hot dogs in LA, they even pop in your mouth seconds before the flavorfilled filling comes into your mouth. If you pile on all of the extras, you hide the flavor and pop, so the great dog will not be revealed to that eater. The hamburgers are good, but I think The Origianl Tommy's has the edge here. The french fries are great, and I love the chili as well. Haven't eaten the other dishes, but veggie and others can eat there as well. Many of the servers have been there for some time, and they are always nice to me (they have gotten to recognize my face for the obvious reason). The only negative is that the parents do not take care of their running, yelling children, which generally comes into play at lunches on Saturdays and during the summer. Eat a yellow mustered dog and enjoy yourself.
