The Hot Dogs can't be beat!!!! 3/12/2012

The menu includes a pretty good variety, burgers, fries, pastrami, chili tamale(w/crackers of course) and the RC cola. But the specialty is the DOG. The reg dog has only mustard, catsup, and onions. But the bread and dogs are steamed. And they snap when you bite into them. And when you add the very delicious chili they really grab you. I have eaten at Chronis since my dad use to take us to the one that used to be on the NE corner Whittier & Eastern just across from Calvary cemetery back in 1957 on Friday nights as our family treat. And I keep stopping in at the only one left on Whittier just east of Gerhart. I always remember tall Ron who was the main guy for so many years and could add everything in your box in a couple of seconds. more

BEST CHILI DOG EVAR!!!1!!!!1 12/31/2007

I've actually been eating at Chronis since I was a kid. It was a staple of my youth and really just the standard for good chili dogs in my book. Imagine my expression when I realized that Chronis was actually among the top chili dogs available in the greater Los Angeles area. I've tried Carneys, been to Pinks (tons of imagination, gotta give props for that alone), and I still prefer my old school favorite. Pros: Chili Dog, Pastrami, Old School East LA feel Cons: Tough to get seating during peak hours more

Hot Dogs- simple the way they should be! 8/3/2007

Don't expect anything fancy from this little place on Whittier Boulevard in the heart of East L.A. I've been to Pink's in Hollywood, and this place is the complete opposite. You won't find Kosher Dogs or any other kind of avant-garde hot dog on the menu. According to my father, the menu hasn't changed since he was a kid, and that is the charm of this place- well, besides the great hot dogs. The menu also includes burgers, chili cheese fries, and RC cola. However, the signature food is the hot dogs, which have the mandatory 'snap' when you bite them- this is what characterizes a good hot dog from a bad one. Due to its location on the Eastside, this place doesn't get the hype that Pink's or other fast food places on the Westside do. Still, it's hard not to appreciate the quality and the simplicity of this 'hole-in-the-wall' that is an Eastside landmark. As a matter of fact, I think I'll go get three hot dogs right now with extra ketchup. more

East Los rivals the East Coast 4/3/2007

Like so many others I grew up eating Chronis and the hot dogs are the best. I've been to NY and most of the East Coast and let me tell you Chronis can easily rival them. In fact I took I took some friends from NY there and they loved the place. It is also a landmark for those of the East Los Angeles community. I love taking people there because everyone ends up falling in love with it. It's one of the prides of the Eastside!!! Its been around so long that my father used to eat there when he was a kid and he's 65 years old. Pros: Old school hamburger stand feel. Cons: Trying to find a seat. more

East Los Best 5/16/2005

There isn't a better chili dog on the eastside. The bun is steamed, the chili is a secret recipe, and the hot dog tastey. The hamburger has fresh leaves of lettuce, tomatoes, onion and pickle, you couldn't make it better at your own backyard bbq grill. It's an old fashion hamburger stand, you walk up to the curbside counter to place your order and sit and eat under a covered patio. I suggest you wash this good grub down with the Grape Drink. Enjoy. Pros: fast Cons: outdoor seating more

Pastrami 101 7/25/2002

This place has definitely been my #A-1 fast food establishment for the past 30+ years! Not only do they have the best Pastrami sandwiches, check out their hamburgers, hot dogs, chili fries. The prices are right & the service is super fast. They should at least have 5 in every county. You won't be sorry or leave hungry. Pros: Quality food, Fast Service, Good prices Cons: Upgrade Location more
