Skooby's - Hollywood

Skooby's on Hollywood's Walk of Fame

Last Friday, Larry and I were on our way to the Mods & Rockers film festival at the American Cinematheque, Egyptian Theater in Hollywood. We were running late and hadn't eaten dinner, so we stopped at Skooby's Hotdogs, a few blocks from the theater, across the street from Musso & Frank's.

The hotdogs were really good. I had the Quesadilla Dog, which is a frank in a flour tortilla with fresh grated cheddar cheese, Monterey Jack cheese and homemade basil mayonnaise. Larry had Skooby's Original Hot Dog, which is a classic frank with your choice of toppings — spicy mustard, ketchup, onions, relish, jalapeños, mayonnaise. The highlight of the meal was the fresh-squeezed lemonade. Our meal was fast, delicious and inexpensive....the perfect L.A. food experience!

On an architectural/landmark note, after closer inspection, it looks like Skooby's is in the same building as the now defunct Pussy Cat Theater! Check out the blank oval sign above the Skooby's logo...yup...it's the former Pussy Cat!

Wow! The Pussy Cat Theater. I haven't heard that name in a long time. I guess dirty old men get DVDs or videos now.

Skooby's is great. We go there all the time. It's one of the few "new" places in Hollywood that's good and affordable.
