Tail O’ the Pup
When most people think of hot dogs, they tend to think of New York and Chicago, but did you know that Los Angeles has a unique hot dog culture of its own? Tail O’ the Pup has been serving up classic and imaginative hot dogs since 1946, and you can’t miss the hot dog-shaped stand on Santa Monica Boulevard. Here, you’ll find various dogs, including the stand’s odes to Chicago and New York hot dogs as well as the classic Baseball Pup, a spicy Jalapeno Pup and a Chili Pup, to name a few. The newly revitalized stand pays tribute to the original and historic Los Angeles landmark for a delicious taste of West Hollywood history.
