Pink’s Hot Dogs Expands
Venerable wiener purveyor Pink’s Hot Dogs — an establishment which commands hours-long lines at its iconic flagship location in Hollywood — is planning to open its second Las Vegas location at Red Rocks Resort this winter. The first Sin City outpost opened at Planet Hollywood’s Miracle Mile Shops in 2009, offering a much-needed more affordable option to the city’s notoriously expensive eateries.
This Pink’s will replace Turf Grill, a 2,000-square-foot space location adjacent to the casino’s poker room and race and sports book. As for what Pink’s fans can expect, the menu features many of the same signature items found in the Planet Hollywood restaurant, including the classic chili dog, Guadalajara Dog, and chili cheese fries.
Launched in 1939, the chain is popular with celebrities of all statures and has been featured in countless movies and TV shows and commercials. There are even several franks named after some of their famous fans, like the "Martha Stewart Dog" with with mustard, relish, onions, chopped tomatoes, sauerkraut, bacon, and sour cream.
