What You'll Get

Jump to: Reviews | Hot Dog–Eating Contests Through Time

Whoever said bad things arrive in threes didn’t have today’s Groupon. Today’s deal gets you $16 worth of doggone deliciousness for $8 at Skooby’s, the Hollywood hot dog hot spot where three is a delicious, magical number.

Customize the winning taste-trifecta (hot dog, fries, and drink) in a variety of ways. First off, pick your breed of wiener. Your regular, low-fat turkey or vegi frank is seven inches of encased bliss, stuffed into a fresh, natural roll and gussied up with all the fixings. Skooby's never uses freezers, microwaves, or heat lamps, ensuring that your dog is maximally fresh. You can order your fries loaded with bacon and cheddar, smothered in chili and cheddar, or seasoned with garlic. Wash it all down with freshly made lemonade, the perfect union of sweet and sour delight squeezed from California lemons.

Plop down on the red-cushioned stools and people-watch while stuffing your face, and hope that no one is person-watching you. Skooby’s is located right under the former Ritz Theatre and stays open late (until midnight every night), so you can pad the stomach with some quality sustenance after a late night out. Celebrate this nostalgic American tradition with your family and friends, or gear up for that all-you-can-eat hot-dog contest you’ve been hankering to enter.


Hot Dog Spot ranks Skooby’s the best dog in LA, the New York Times encourages chili-dog consumption, and the Los Angeles Times is fanatic about the fries:

  • Skooby's may be a hot dog joint, but it's the fries that are killer. A mix of thick strips and thin chips, twice-fried in peanut oil, sprinkled with Skooby's special spice mix, they're worth crossing town for. – Los Angeles Times
  • Skooby's Hot Dogs...a relative newcomer, has some frankfurter connoisseurs saying it's the best in town. – Cindy Price, New York Times

Skooby’s gets five stars from Citysearchers, and four from Yelp:

  • I disovered [sic] Skooby's 2 years ago and I have to say that the fries and garlic/roasted pepper mayo dipping sauce is heavenly! – montrealgirl, Citysearch
  • This place trumps Pinks any day of the week!!!!!!! – January L., Yelp

Hot Dog–Eating Contests Through Time

First practiced by early civilizations, one genteel ritual has survived into our modern era: the hot dog–eating contest. Known as “the sweet science,” the hot dog–eating contest has played a part in numerous important historical events:

340 BC: After badly losing in a hot dog–eating contest, Aristotle becomes disillusioned and declares that a life of contemplation is man’s highest good.
1337: The House of Valois and the House of Plantagenet become embroiled in a deadly hot dog–eating contest which devolves into the Hundred Years War.
1513: Ponce de Leon attempts to become King of the New World, but loses a hot dog–eating contest to a pack of feral dogs.
1776: America wins its independence when it bests England in the first transatlantic hot dog–eating contest.
2010: A hot dog–eating contest held near Three Mile Island goes horribly wrong, setting off a chain reaction that rapidly evolves life to a new, trans-human phase.
