weekday vs. weekend 4/27/2011

My son and I love this place but, only on the weekends. On weekdays the service is horrible (it was not only once) but three times. more

Used to love it, now won't go. 2/28/2009

Used to be a great place for burgers. Hot dogs are still okay but the last few times there the hamburger meat was paper thin and tasteless. Double cheeseburger came with one slice of cheese, I ask for another slice and they charged fifty cents more with a bad attitude to boot. The man that owned/managed(?) from a few years ago is not there. He built up a good business with good food and service. They must have sold the franchise and the new owners have gone on the cheap. I miss the place but will go elsewhere for a good hamburger. more

Polish Dog Red Barron Is The BEST Hot Dog Ever! 7/25/2008

I love this Hot Dog so much I make a trip from Thousand Oaks craving it. You must try the RED BARRON POLISH DOG. You will not be disappointed. Love it! Wish they would open up in Thousand Oaks Pros: Best Hot Dog- The RED BARRON POLISH DOG. Casual, comfortable train seating environment more

Searching for a ""real"" Chicago Style Hot Dog 6/18/2008

I went looking for a "" real "" Chicago Dog and what I found was a standard relish dog called a "" Chciagoan "", I also tried the Carneys which is a chili dog. The hot dogs were good as regular hot dogs could be, so my search is still on . more

Classic No Frills Burger Joint wins by sticking to the basics 12/31/2007

Had a great burger and chili dog meal. Burger was bloody as hell and juicy to an insane degree. Chili dog was solid, using Hoffy dogs (the choice of all of LA's classic hot dog joints), but not great. For my money I'd stick with Chronis. Fries were great. Setting had tons of personality. Pros: Juiby Awesome Burgers, Unique setting more

Great Hot Dogs with a Snap! 11/17/2007

One sign of a good hot dog is if it snaps when you bite into it. There are many hot dog places in L.A. but only a few places do hot dogs right and Carney's is definitely one of the top hot dog places in the southland. Unlike another crowded hot dog stand, Carney's keeps their menu simple. I recommend the standard chili dog or the Chicagoan with relish, onions and mustard. Pros: Hot Dogs and ample parking more

Great chili burgers and dogs, Cool joint on a train 11/17/2006

Best burgers you can find in LA. Good Eats in a train atmosphere. They should have these in an amusement park or citywalk. Pros: Good Eats Good Atmosphere Cons: Room in a train, but that's expected more

Best hot dogs in LA, great fries and good chili - how can you go wrong 10/9/2006

Owners are generally in attendance during daytime operation. This place serves the best hot dogs in LA, they even pop in your mouth seconds before the flavorfilled filling comes into your mouth. If you pile on all of the extras, you hide the flavor and pop, so the great dog will not be revealed to that eater. The hamburgers are good, but I think The Origianl Tommy's has the edge here. The french fries are great, and I love the chili as well. Haven't eaten the other dishes, but veggie and others can eat there as well. Many of the servers have been there for some time, and they are always nice to me (they have gotten to recognize my face for the obvious reason). The only negative is that the parents do not take care of their running, yelling children, which generally comes into play at lunches on Saturdays and during the summer. Eat a yellow mustered dog and enjoy yourself. Pros: Best dogs in town Cons: None really more

It Probably Is the Best Hamburger in LA 9/17/2006

I like this place. They have great burgers. They even have Dr Pepper and that's a huge plus for me. The french fries are great. The service is pretty fast and the railroad car decor is a lot of fun. It's also a good place to see celebrities from time to time. Pros: Food! more

I love the yellow train!!! 2/24/2006

My boyfriend and I really enjoy Carney's, whether it's afterschool or a weekend lunch. It is inexpensive and the service is very nice. The have great hotdogs (plain & New Yorker), chicken breast, fries, and yummy chocolate covered banana. The decor is average, with a relaxed atmosphere with addtl sit down area outside. They also have funny names for the different sizes on the cups. :) There are cool pictures of the history on the wall. Overall, I would defintely recommend Carney's. And, I'm not the owner, I just enjoy the place. Pros: Price, Food, Parking more

Awesome Burgers and Dogs 12/16/2005

Been all around LA and this is the best stuff in town. They'll give your the thickest tomato slice in the world on your burger if you don't say otherwise. Personally, I ask for a thin tomato and it's much better. Ask for the Red-eyes split and grilled. Get chilli on everything. It'll all clog your arteries, but it's all really, really good. Be sure to check out the photos on the walls of ""ancient"" Venture Blvd. It's amazing what can happen in 100 years or so! Pros: Food, Cool Train Car Cons: Does get crowded more
