The hot dog has long been man's best friend, providing loyal company at picnics, letting you dress it however you please, and always cuddling with you on chilly winter nights. Discover and devour a new best friend with today's Groupon: for $8, you get $16 worth of hot dogs, fries, and drinks at Skooby’s. The retro hot doggery is nestled beneath the former Ritz Theatre in Hollywood. Though this Groupon expires in three months, you can purchase as many as you’d like (using one per visit), giving you plenty of opportunities to honor July as National Hot-Dog Month.
Skooby's no-nonsense menu features regular, low-fat turkey, and vegi franks—seven inches of encased bliss, ready to be stuffed into fresh, natural rolls and gussied up with all your favorite fixings. If you prefer your protein pooches already dressed to impress, opt for a chili cheddar, bacon cheddar, or quesadilla dog (all $3.95, add $0.50 for turkey or vegi franks). Skooby's never uses freezers, microwaves, or heat lamps, ensuring all dogs are maximally fresh. Support your main feast with a structurally sound order of classic Skooby's fries ($2.95) or top your taters with similar garnishes as offered for the dogs. Shower it all with freshly made lemonade ($3), which unites the sour delight squeezed from California lemons with the sweetness squeezed from concentrated dreams.
Plop down on the red-cushioned stools and people watch while stuffing your face, hoping that no one is person-watching you. Skooby’s stays open late (until midnight every night), so you can pad the stomach with some quality sustenance after a late night out. Celebrate some nostalgic American noshing with your family and friends, or gear up for that all-you-can-eat hot-dog contest you’ve been hankering to enter.
Skooby's will not be open Independence Day or Labor Day.
- 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. – Betty Hallock, Los Angeles Times
- Skooby's Hot Dogs...a relative newcomer, has some frankfurter connoisseurs saying it surpasses [its competitor]. – Cindy Price, New York Times
- 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
- Love the garlic dog and fries. Nice and fast but really small. Way better than those other hog dog places! My kids love it too and fresh made lemonade...YUM. – paula v., Yelp
