Carney's is a burger and hotdog joint inside a train car on the Sunset Strip. Their hotdogs are always good. My favorite is the Red Baron with red cabbage.
Open since the 70s, fun for late night. Chili dogs, done up with mustard, pickles, tomatoes and onions, and fries are the way to go.
Carney's has missed their own train – Unfortunately, I didn't have a good experience at Carney's Restaurant. Although the service was acceptable and the train was very clean, the food was not on par. First, my order was wrong. I ordered and paid for two chili dogs and I only received one. And, for some reason, the fries were luke warm after being dumped from the fryer. Hmmm, I'm still confused about that one. I wanted to support Carney's because EVERYONE seems to patronize Pink's on LaBrea, but as a result, I won't be visiting either again. Carney's is located in an energetic spot, but lacks the energy inside. The bacon wrapped hotdogs that are served on the mobile carts after the leaving the club at 2AM is wayyyyyy better than this. Sorry Carney's, but you're not on board this train.
Definately the best burger in the world!!!!!!!! – I love Carney's I have been going there since a week after they opened when I was 15. I snuck out of the house at midnight for a burger and have been going there since. There was a time in teh mid 80's I did not need to order, I walked in & they started making my food!
Thanks John & Bill!
Loved the train theme! – We went to this place because we saw the sign that had a picture of a train caboose on it and they sell hot dogs. Can't go wrong with either, so we tried it and liked it! Make sure you get your dog split on the grill, it'll taste better!
A Sunset Strip landmark, this vintage train car hawks budget chili dogs and burgers. – In Short
This casual SoCal burger joint inhabits a bright yellow Amtrak passenger car from the 1920s, and its white- and red-paneled walls sport old framed black-and-whites documenting its disco-era construction. T-shirted tourists and local die-hards order at the counter and grab napkins from a bathroom towel dispenser at the end of the line. Trademark burgers and hot dogs are served in cardboard boxes, often drenched in chili and accompanied by bottled beer or lemonade in a paper cup.
Chili cheese fries – The best chili burgers and chili fries, hands down. Have been a regular since I was 14 and will not ever stop. I was in the hospital for a week when I was 16 and my mom took me straight to Carney's the moment I was released. Nuff said.
OH YEAH! – You know that big train car on Sunset and you always wondered why it was there. Well, it's there to tempt your pallet with some of the best chili burgers in town. Sit down and watch the world go up and down Sunset Blvd. while you surely use up your fair share of napkins. All I have to say is once you've had a burger from Carney...the rest of 'em are just Blarney!
OH MY GOD THESE ARE GOOD – Carney's is BY FAR has the best burgers I've ever had in my life...and believe me, I eat a lot of burgers. Every time I have an out of town guest, they end up demanding we go back to Carney's a few times each trip. The price is soooo cheap, especially when you consider how huge the burger is and what you get at normal fast food joints. The few times I've tried something else on the menu, I haven't been disappointed. And the best part...the Michael Keaton doppelganger at the Sunset location.
Simply the best – Simply one of the best if not the best Burger joint. They have other food aside from Burgers which are great also. Don't get me started on how good their chili is .. oh my. Their Half pound burgers are exactly that ... a half pound of beef. A glorious burger it is.
Best Burger in LA! – Carney's on Sunset has the best burgers in town. I consider myself something a burger expert and Carney's burgers rock! I'm not a big fan of the chilli burger they seem to have built a reputation around but just a plain ol' burger there is quite exceptional.
