Carney's


Carney's is a hot dog and burger restaurant in a yellow Union Pacific rail car on Sunset Boulevard in Los Angeles, California1 It was brought to the site in the 1970s2 A second Carney's, also in train cars, is located on Ventura Boulevard in Studio City3 A crackdown on weekly biker meetings at that location caused controversy4

Pulitzer-prize-winning LA restaurant critic Jonathan Gold put Carney's on his list of 99 essential Los Angeles restaurants5 and wrote that, "Carney’s is a restaurant in the real Los Angeles tradition, two ancient Union Pacific cars transported to West Hollywood at great expense and mounted overlooking the Strip, where a mad parade of bass players and catalog models, hustlers and high school kids, movie guys and industry suits stare out the windows of the old train, onto the profusion of German tourists and Japanese cars that flow down this section of Sunset so steadily that after a few beers and a chili dog or two, the train can appear to be lurching down the track"6 KTVU movie critic Bob Shaw was fond of Carney's burgers7 Carney's serves a chocolate-dipped frozen banana on a stick for dessert6
