Hollywood’s landmark Pink’s Hot Dogs will soon be serving up its famous dogs in Las Vegas.

The hot dog hotspot will be opening in Planet Hollywood’s Miracle Mile Shops this August.

Pink’s founder Paul Pink started the brand with just a pushcart in 1939, selling chili dogs for 10 cents apiece. He later traded his cart for the restaurant in 1946, which Pink’s still operates out of today. Now 70 years older and $3 more expensive, Pink’s and its chili dogs have chosen Las Vegas as its second location to place its roots.

Hot dogs on Pink’s don the names of famous patrons like the “Martha Stewart dog” (10" hot dog, relish, onions, bacon, chopped tomatoes, sauerkraut & sour cream), the Rosie O’Donnell Long Island Dog (10" hot dog, topped with mustard, onions, chili and sauerkraut) and the Ozzy Spicy Dog (spicy Polish dog, nacho cheese, American cheese, grilled onions, guacamole and chopped tomatoes).

The restaurant has been featured on “The Today Show,” Food Network’s “Throwdown! With Bobby Flay” and episodes of “Nip/Tuck.”

Aside from hot dogs, Pink’s will be offering up a few new jobs. The restaurant is expecting to hire between 30 and 35 people as bartenders, line cooks and managers. A job fair will be hosted in July for the positions.
