Truly one of the better beef dogs served anywhere. It will be interesting to see how it's received in Hollywood, home of Pinks.

Oh, sure, they get Papaya King, and here in Ohio we get stuck with Pinks. Life is unfair.

They're supposed to open a Pink's at Cedar Point (amusement park) in Sandusky, Ohio.

The TV show Extra did a web-only feature on the Los Angeles Papaya King truck (possibly for the benefit of transplanted Warner Brothers employees):

It includes a video that features this truck:

I note the truck only charges $2.00 for a frank with onions, kraut or relish. A combo with 2 franks and a drink is $5.50. The video shows they are using natural casing franks.
 
As the the bricks and mortar restaurant, I have this theory that you need a lot of foot traffic for a Gray's or Papaya King to succeed. Los Angelinos, correct me if I am wrong, but I recall Hollywood and Wilcox having a lot of foot traffic. As long as this restaurant chain puts in a good manager, this place should succeed.

Hollywood and Wilcox is not a destination intersection except for tourists and locals taking out tourists for a trip to see the footprints.
 
It will cost you a lot more than $5.50 for the two hot dogs just to park.
 
I haven't been to Skooby's yet.  Maybe I'll make it to both soon.
