Las Vegas: They say Las Vegas has it all – and lucky for hot dog lovers, they have satellite locations from some of the best hot dog locations in the country including Nathan’s Famous Hot Dogs from New York and Pink’s, the famed Los Angeles hot doggery.
Soledad Canyon: Pink’s, a mom and pop shop open since 1939, must be doing something right. On any given day, the line is around the corner and people wait patiently to step up and order any number of dog selections, including the Guadalajara dog, the Nacho Cheese Chili Dog and the 9-inch Stretch Chili Dog.
